Ecology is study of interactions between non-living components (abiotic factors) in the environment… light water wind nutrients in soil heat solar radiation atmosphere, etc. AND…
Living organisms (biotic factors)… Plants Animals microorganisms in soil, etc.
Organism An organism is any single living creature. Organism can be single celled or made up of many cells working together. Plants Animals Fungi Protista Bacteria
Populations All the organisms in an ecosystem that belong to the same species They must be able to interbreed with each other!
Community A community is all the populations of different species that live in an ecosystem. Community ONLY consists of living organisms!
Community Community of African savannahs Community of African grasslands Community of farm animals
Ecosystem All the organisms living in an area and the nonliving features of their environment Living (biotic) and nonliving (abiotic)
Biomes Biomes are regions of the world with similar climate (weather, temperature) animals and plants. Consist of living and nonliving
Biomes Tundra Desert Rain Forest Tiaga Grasslands Ocean Temperate Forest
Biosphere The biosphere is defined as the sphere or area around the planet Earth where life exists. OUR LIVING WORLD
Biosphere Biomes Ecosystem Community Population Organism They ALL relate to each other!
ENERGY flowing through an E C O S Y S T E M creates a simple FOOD CHAIN diagram.
Food chains – arrows show the direction of energy flow.
Relationships The relationships between organisms in an ecosystem can be shown by a food web.
What is Ecology?.
Ecosystems, Communities, and Biomes
The Biosphere. Ecology Ecologists study of interactions of organisms with their environment Levels of Interaction –Organism –Population –Community –Ecosystem.
Ecology: Ecology: an introduction. The study of the interactions that take place among organisms and their environment.
Geography. Learning Objectives Students should be able to define Physical and Human Geography Students should be able to list the 7 Major Biomes
Ecology The study of how living things interact with their environment.
Ecology —An Overview. What is Ecology? Ecology is the scientific study of the interactions between organisms and their environment. It is the science.
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.
Ecology Branch of Science-studies living organisms, their interactions with each other and with their environments-interdependence of life.
Introducing Ecology. What is Ecology? the study of interactions between organisms and their environment.
Notes: Biotic & Abiotic Factors. A. Ecology The study of interactions between organisms and their environment.
Ecology. What is Ecology? Ecology is the study of interactions among organisms (biotic factors) and between organisms and their environment (abiotic factors).
The study of interactions between organisms and their environment.
Ecology The study of how organisms interact with living and non- living aspects of their environment.
POPULATIONS & ECOSYSTEM. BIOSPHERE The thin upper part of earth’s surface and its atmosphere is capable of supporting life.
Ecology. Driving Questions 1)Define Ecology. 2)Differentiate between biotic and abiotic factors and give examples of each. 3)What is an ecosystem? Give.
In your science folder create a page called ecology notes. Answer the questions on this slide show on that page. Do it by yourself first, when your group.
Vocabulary of Instruction:
LO: SWBAT define what ecology is DN: What is the environment? Describe the environment you are in right now. HW: Regents Review Book (red) evolution.
