Definition: The study of relationships between Ecology organisms and their physical environmentIllustration/example:
Definition: The world in which an organisms lives is Environment its environment. It includes the living or biotic factors and non-living or abiotic factors.Illustration/example:
Definition: An organism, such as green plants, that Producer makes its own food by photosynthesis.Illustration/example: A producer will convert light energy into chemical energy (sugar) through the process of photosynthesis.
Definition: Organisms such as animals that can not Consumer make their own food. They eat other animals or plants to obtain the energy and nutrients they need to survive.Illustration/example: Consumers (Animals) Producers (Plants)
Definition: A community interacting with the non-living Ecosystem parts of its environment.Illustration/example:
Definition: Large geographic areas that have Biome similar climate and ecosystems.Illustration/example:
Definition: A model used to show how energy from food Food Chain passes from one organism to another.Illustration/example:
Definition: A model used to describe a series of Food Web overlapping food chains.Illustration/example:
Definition: Any biotic or abiotic fact that restricts the Limiting Factor number of individuals in a populationIllustration/example: The lack of water is a limiting factor when it limits the growth and development of plants.
Definition: The number of Population individuals per unit of living Density space.Illustration/example:
Definition: The physical location where an organism Habitat lives.Illustration/example:
Definition: The role of an organism in the ecosystem. Niche Another definition is how an organisms makes its living in a habitat.Illustration/example:
Definition: A nonliving thing in an ecosystem. Abiotic Abiotic Factor factors can determine the number and types of organisms in an ecosystem.Illustration/example: Abiotic Factors Water Light Rocks Temperature
Definition: The living, or once living, that directly or Biotic Factor indirectly affect an organisms and it surroundings.Illustration/example: Biotic Factors Fish Plants Bacteria Algae
