What’s wrong with this food chain?
Arrows pointing wrong way
How do you work out biomass?
Number of organisms x average (dry) mass
List 2 ways energy is lost as you move up a food chain
Some parts don’t get eaten Some lost as faeces Some used in respiration (movement, keeping warm etc)
Why can farmers make more money by keeping battery hens in cages than they can from free range?
Less energy is lost in moving and keeping warm so farmers can feed them less
Name 2 biofuels
Biogas (methane) Bioethanol Wood
How do you make biogas?
Fermentation By bacteria In a digester
Why do farmers use pesticides?
So pests don’t eat crops (Less of the crop’s energy is lost to pests is a better answer)
What is biological control?
A natural predator eats the pest
What are the advantages of biological control?
No toxic chemical Useful insects not harmed Top predators not poisoned
What 3 conditions do decomposers need to grow?
Oxygen Water Warmth
Why does adding sugar or salt preserve food?
Removes water using osmosis
Name 2 uses of decomposing microbes?
Making compost Breaking down sewage
How does carbon get into plants?
List 3 ways carbon is put back into the atmosphere?
Respiration by animals Respiration by plants Respiration by decomposers (decomposition) Combustion
Why is there more carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in the winter?
Less photosynthesis (fewer leaves) More combustion (heating)
What other element is recycled in nature?
B1.5 Energy in biomass Pyramids of biomass Energy transfers Decay processes Carbon cycle Recycling organic waste.
Carbon Cycle The movement of carbon from the non- living environment into living things and back.
Cycling of Matter Carbon Cycle Nitrogen Cycle. Ecosystems TEKS TEK 7.5 B – Demonstrate and explain the cycling of matter within living systems such as.
Flow vs. Cycle Energy enters an ecosystem by photosynthesis and exits as heat Producers capture sun’s energy and convert it to carbohydrates (sugars)
Describe the energy transfer that takes place during photosynthesis. Draw a pyramid of biomass using the following information. Gazelles are eaten by lions.
Energy and Nutrient Transfer Food chains and Food webs Objectives: *Describe a food chain and each feeding stage in it **Distinguish between a food chain.
Cycles of Nature. Water Cycle: Review: As we have already learned, water is constantly being cycled and recycled in an ecosystem.
Review: Food Webs. L2 Decay and Recycling Organic Waste Learning Objectives: 1.Describe the process of decay and what organisms are responsible. 2.Explain.
Food chains (2) Begins with the Sun’s energy Solar/radiant energy converted to chemical energy by primary producers Amount of available energy decreases.
VocabCycles Energy Flow Chains, Webs and Pyramids TeamworkPotpourri
A single path that shows how each living thing gets it’s food. The flow of energy begins with the SUN and transfers through the chain. Always starts with.
Energy flow in the Ecosystem. Energy 1 st law of thermodynamics – energy can not be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another.
2.1 Energy Flow in Ecosystems Biomass is the total mass of all living things (ie. plants, animals, fungi, bacteria) in a given area. –Biomass can also.
Organisms and their environment INTERACTIVE MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS The answers are provided. Explanations of why the alternatives are unsatisfactory.
Ecosystems Forest Ecosystem Ocean EcosystemDesert Ecosystem How is an organism’s energy role determined in an ecosystem?
B2 – Biology The Carbon Cycle Mr. P. Collins. B2.5 The Carbon Cycle - AIMS To understand the carbon cycle Mr. P. Collins.
Food chains and Food webs Objective: To understand where energy comes from and how it flows from organism to organism.
The process of photosynthesis: 6CO2 + 6H2O C6H12O6 + 6O2 Carbon Water sugar oxygen Dioxide (chemical energy)
Warm Up 1. Why can’t a food chain have an infinite number of links? 2. Why aren’t there large numbers of big animals (top consumers) in an ecosystem? 3.
B4 It’s a Green World Biology Revision. 4a Who Planted that there? Plants carry out photosynthesis in leaves: Leaves are adapted by: Broad – large s.a.
B4 Revision GCSE Gateway Biology B 113 Questions.
Modes of Nutrition Autotrophs have the ability to make their own food by the process of photosynthesis (write the word equation) Some bacteria use chemosynthesis.
NUTRIENT CYCLING Science 10. Nutrient Cycles Because Earth is a closed system (i.e. there is little or no input of new material – we have what we have),
Lesson 5 The Flow of Matter through Ecosystems. Water, Carbon, Oxygen and Nitrogen Living things need water, oxygen, carbon, and nitrogen to survive.
Every living thing needs energy in order to survive. Every time animals do something (run, jump, move) they use energy to do so. Plants don’t move, so.
Roles of Living Things All organisms need energy to live. In ecosystem, energy moves in ONE direction: Sun Organisms Energy from sun enters ecosystem.
THE CARBON CYCLE By: Reynaldo Thomas. The carbon cycle explain the circulation of carbon compounds between the living and the non-living world. Carbon.
Nutrient Cycles Certain materials are cycled through ecosystems to be used over and over, they are called nutrients Certain materials are cycled through.
The Biosphere – Part 1 Biology 1. What is Ecology? Ecology is the study of interactions among organisms and between organisms and their environment (includes.
