Introduction to Ecology
Ecology The study of the interactions that take place among organisms and their environment
Biosphere The part of the Earth that supports life
Ecosystem All the organisms living in an area and the nonliving features of their environment
Biotic Factor Living Plants Animals Single-celled organisms fungi
Abiotic Factors Non-living Air Soil Temperature Sunlight
Population Same species, same area
Community All populations in an ecosystem
Habitat Where an organism lives “A habitat is where you hang your hat”
Ni che The whole way of life of an organism
Competition Interaction between organisms for food, space, sunlight, ect. Within same species Between different species
Limiting Factor Anything that restricts the number of individuals in a population. Includes living / biotic and nonliving / abiotic features of the ecosystem
Carrying capacity The maximum number of individuals of any species that can be supported by an ecosystem
Eating!! Energy Transfer
Today I will study the components of an ecosystem because I need to understand how living things depend on one another.
Ecology & the Environment
Ecological Principles: A Brief Overview
The Environment Has Structure Science 6. What is an environment? –Everything that affects an organism What is ecology? –The study of the interactions.
Ecosystems are made up of both living and nonliving things
Chapter 5 Lesson One: Interactions in an Ecosystem
Chapter 5, Lesson 1 Interactions in an Ecosystem
Environmental glossary. Abiotic Non-living things in the environment: example - soil, air, water, temperature (NOT dead things - they would be biotic.
Components of an Ecosystem Notes
Ecology: Ecology: an introduction. The study of the interactions that take place among organisms and their environment.
Living Things and the Environment
The study of the interactions among organisms and their environment. Ecologists are scientists who study these relationships. Two groups of environmental.
ECOLOGY. Ecology is: The study of the relationship between living organisms and their environment.
POPULATIONS & COMMUNITIES REVIEW. The nonliving things within the environment. ABIOTIC FACTORS.

Resilient Planet Mission 1 Invaders: A Constant Ecological Battle.
Ecology. WHAT IS ECOLOGY? Ecology- the scientific study of interactions between organisms and their environments, focusing on energy transfer Ecology.
Competition – two species share a requirement for a limited resource reduces fitness of one or both species.
