Ecological cycles vocabulary Biology 2.04

  1. 1. Ecological Cycles Vocabulary words
  2. 2. Atmosphere Atmosphere layer of gasses around the earth
  3. 3. Carbon carbon A non-metallic element found in coal, petroleum and natural gas. Major component of life.
  4. 4. Carbon Cycle Carbon cycle Circulation of carbon through ecosystems
  5. 5. Cellular respiration Cellular respiration Process by which organisms create energy from sugar Glucose+ Oxygenà CO2+ H20+ Energy (ATP)
  6. 6. Condensation Condensation This is where warm and cold air collide and form ice crystals that condense and form droplets of water. Creates clouds in the air or fog on the ground.
  7. 7. Condense condense to change from a gas to a liquid
  8. 8. Evaporate Evaporate to change from a liquid to a gas
  9. 9. Evaporation Evaporation This is a process where the water is heated and turned into a water vapor. The sun is the main heat source for this process.
  10. 10. Fossil Fuels Fossil fuels Carbon-rich fuel from ancient animals and plants examples: coal, gas, oil
  11. 11. Photosynthesis Photosynthesis Process by which plants make sugar Energy (sun)+ Water+ Carbon dioxide Carbohydrates+ Oxygen
  12. 12. Precipitation Precipitation When water droplets in clouds become to heavy and begin to fall Precipitation can be rain, hail, sleet or snow depending on the temperature and wind conditions
  13. 13. Respiration and decay -: •Mechanisms in which animal life and bacteria consume oxygen and release carbon dioxide
  14. 14. Percolation percolation When water seeps through the soil and ends up in the water table. It then flows into the streams, lakes, oceans, and other bodies of water. The process is then repeated again and again.
  15. 15. Transpiration Transpiration the process by which plants lose water through the stomata of their leaves
  16. 16. Weathering Weathering Physical and chemical process in which solid rock exposed at earths surface is changed to separate solid particles and dissolved materials
