An organism is a single animals, plant, bacteria, ect.
A number of organisms living together of the same species.
A number of populations living together interacting with one another.
a group of living organisms that interact with one another and non living objects
a geographic region of earth that is inhabited by a community of a distinct spieces of plants and animal speices.
a layer of water, dirt, air, which can substain life.
Many food chains together, in order to show the relationship between animals.
Starting with a source (sun) energy is transfered to the producer, then first, second, and third consumers, and then to the decomposers. every transfer of energy takes away about 90% of the energy between each level
This is the level at which an animal is in the food chain, starts with producer and then consumers. every transfer of energy takes away about 90% of the energy between each level
A geographic region of earth that is inhabited by a community of distict types of plant and associtated animal species.
a biome in habited by usally tropical species of animals, and must have 68-70in. of rain. They can also be a "hot spot" for biodiversity. It contains a large amount of vegatation and animals too.
35-60in of rain fall yearly. 80-90 degrees in the summer. 30-50 degrees in the winter. contains many hardy animals and plants that can adapt to cold and warm temperatures.
warm summers and cool winters. can contain pine trees and a variety of animals
recieves less than 10in. of rain a year. contains a small biodiversity with a very few grasses, and shurbs/ferns, and many cacti. during the day it can be over 113 degrees and at night it can be close to 32 or less.
In physical geography, tundra is a biome where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons. It can also have a number of pioneer spieces here such as mosses and lichen, and it can also contain some darwf shurbs.
Grasslands are areas mostly containing grasses and a few sedges.
this is a biome that can contain a number of fish such as the pike, and bass. fish are limited to size due to the usual small area for them to grow. These are inland water biomes, and can also include wetlands.
The marine biome can range form a tropical to an artic. This is made of many aquic marine life and some larger fish.
The diversity of speices in an area or the amount of speices there.
places on earth in the tropics that contain most of the biodiversity on earth.
Ecological Succession is the change of an ecosystem over time
Limiting factors are things that prevent a population form growing uncontrolled and prevent it from reaching a certain point.
This is the max a witch a population can reach or the largest amount it can have and can be set by the limiting factors.
Population growth is the growing of a population can grow depending on limiting it's limiting factors.
The industrial revolution was the start of a huge population growth spike, due to the increase of life expecancy. It also had ties to pollution giving off many byproducts, starting the use of oil, and the extreme use of natural resources.
sustainability is the ability to fend off against factors and other things that may effect the organisim.
This is the rate at witch a population may increase by taking form in many different ways, but we are talking about exponential and logistic growth.
Exponential growth, J-curve
Logistic growth, s-curve
water pollution is the pollution of water and can be caused by many things and is broken into two types point and non-point source pollution.
An aquifer is a underground layer of water bearing permeable rock
