Biology 3 1

  1. 1. What is Ecology? 3.1 <br />
  2. 2. Ecology <br />Scientific study of interactions among organisms and between organisms and their environment.<br />
  3. 3. Biosphere<br />Part of Earth in which life exists including land, water, and air or atmosphere.<br />
  4. 4. Species <br />Group of similar organisms that can breed and produce fertile offspring.<br />
  5. 5. Population<br />Group of individuals of the same species that live in the same area.<br />
  6. 6. Community <br />Assemblage of different populations that live together in a defined area.<br />
  7. 7. Ecosystem<br />Collection of all the organisms that live in a particular place, together with their nonliving environment.<br />
  8. 8. Biome<br />Group of ecosystems that have the same climate and dominant communities.<br />
  9. 9. Key Concept<br />What different levels of organization do ecologists study?<br />To understand relationships within the biosphere, ecologists ask questions about events and organisms that range in complexity from a single individual to the entire bioshpere.<br />
  10. 10. Key Concept<br />What methods are used to study ecology?<br />Regardless of the tools they use, scientists conduct modern ecological research using three basic approaches: observing, experimenting, and modeling. All of these approaches rely on the application of scientific methods to guide ecologists inquiry. <br />
