Today I will study the components of an ecosystem because I need to understand how living things depend on one another.
Essential Question: What would happen to an ecosystem if there were no more bugs? S7L4
What is Ecology? Ecology is the study of how living things interact with one another and with their environment.
What is an ecosystem? All the living and nonliving things that interact in a particular area make up an ecosystem. Examples of ecosystems include: oceans, mountains, and forest
Organism: An organism obtains food, water, shelter, and other things it needs to live, grow and reproduce from its surroundings.
Habitats….. The place where an organism lives and provides its basic needs is its habitat. There can be many habitats in one ecosystem. List at least 3 habitats that you seen outside today.
Biotic Factors: Biotic factors are the living things found inside an ecosystem. List at least 5 biotic factors found in your environment.
Abiotic Factors: Abiotic factors are the nonliving parts of an ecosystem. Examples include: 1.Sunlight 2.Water 3.Oxygen 4.Temperature 5.Soil
Question: How do biotic and abiotic factors differ?
Species: A species is a group of similar organisms that can mate with each other and produce fertile offspring.
Populations: All of the members of a species in a particular area are referred to as a population.
Communities: All the different populations that live together in an area make up a community. Most ecosystems contain more than one type of organism.
What are the levels of organization? Organisms make up populations. Populations make up communities. And communities make up ecosystems.
Our People Can Eat Bread Organism, Population, Community, Ecosystem, Biosphere
Question???? Would all the insects in a forest be considered a population? Why or Why not?
Limiting Factors Anything that restricts or controls the number of individuals in a population
Carrying Capacity The largest number of individuals of one species an ecosystem can support.
Competition All living things compete for – Food – Space Competition limits population growth.
Closing: Minute Paper –What is the most interesting thing you learned today.
VIS Term DefinitionSentence Picture Organism Population Community Ecosystem Biosphere
The Abiotic and Biotic Environment EQ: How can we classify the levels of ecological organization?
Life Science Ecology & the Environment. Ecology Study of the interactions that take place among organisms and their environment.
Picture a forest scene in your head. What kind of plants do see? What kinds of animals do you see? What kind of non-living materials do you see?

Levels of Organization in Ecology What is the correct level of organization (think back to the card activity from our previous class)? atom molecule.
Ecosystems: Everything is Connected “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” – John Mur, American.
T. Trimpe Challenge #2 Levels of Organization.
Interactions of Living Things Guided Notes Food Chains, Food Webs, and the Transfer of Energy.
Ecology By Ashley Olsen. What is ecology? Ecology is Ecology is the study of the relationship between the environment and living organism Their interactions.
Ecology Organisms obtain food, water, Shelter and other need to live, grow and reproduce from its environment Different needs----Different Habitats Living.
Ecology Review Questions Multiple Choice The natural world that surrounds an organism is called the organisms: a. energy b. environment c. lodgings d.
Chapter 2 Principles of Ecology You will learn: 1. What an ecologist does. 2. Some important aspects of an organisms environment. 3.Trace the flow of energy.

Lesson 3 Unit 1 Ecology & the Environment. 1. What is a factor that increases population size? A) Lack of water B) Large food supply C) Competition for.
Ecology The end is near. What is ecology The scientific study of the interactions between organisms and their environment Basic ecology provides scientific.
EcologyEcology: the study of interactions that take place between organisms and their environment Ecology.
Ecology Movement of energy. Know the 3 Es Ecology = the study of the relationship between organisms and their environment. Ecosystem = all the living.
Ecology. Ecology is the study of the interactions of living organisms with one another and with their physical environment (soil, water, climate…) ECO.
Biotic vs. Abiotic Review. Journal: Thinks of a pond ecosystem. List the biotic factors you would find on the left and the abiotic factors on the right.
What is an ecosystem? Chapter 5 Lesson 1. Living and Nonliving Parts Ecosystem- all the living and nonliving things in the area Ecosystem- all the living.
Lesson 1: Living Things and the Environment Populations and Ecosystems packet.

Ecology The study of interactions that take place between organisms and their environment.
An ecosystem is a complete community of biotic and its abiotic environment. An ecosystem can be as large as the Sahara Desert or as small as a puddle.
POPULATION ECOLOGY. CONCEPT 52.2 INTERACTIONS BETWEEN ORGANISMS AND THE ENVIRONMENT LIMIT THE DISTRIBUTION OF SPECIES.
Ecology. Ecology Ecology is the study of interactions between different kinds of living things and their environment. Ecology is the study of interactions.
