Environmental Science

The Study of Ecology


Introduction

Who is the audience?

• Grade 6 Science Class

• Biology Unit / Environmental

• This project will serve as a review and reinforcement of previously introduced material

•The focus is on the following terms:

• Ecology, population, community, ecosystem, herbivore, carnivore, omnivore, scavenger, and habitat.

Objectives

• Students will demonstrate understanding of the interactions of plants, animals, fungi and other organisms in ecosystems.

• Students will be able to identify populations of organisms within an ecosystem and the factors that contribute to their survival within that ecosystem.

By: Denise M. Legghio


Definitions

Ecology:The study of the interactions between organisms and their environment


Population:

A group of individuals of the same species that live together in the same area at the same time


Community:

All of the populations of different species that live and interact in an area


Ecosystem:

A community of organisms and their nonliving environment


Herbivore:

A consumer that eats plants


Carnivore:

A consumer that eats animals


Omnivore:

A consumer that eats a variety of organisms


Scavenger:

An animal that feeds on the bodies of dead animals


Habitat:

The environment where an organism lives


Now, are you ready to practice what you’ve reviewed?

Ecology is:

  • The study of the interactions between organisms and their environment

  • A community of organisms and their nonliving environment

  • The environment where an organism lives

Review Terms


A population is:

  • A community of organisms and their nonliving environment

  • The environment where an organism lives

  • A group of individuals of the same species that live together in the same area at the same time


A community is:

  • The environment where an organism lives

  • All of the populations of different species that live and interact in an area

  • A group of individuals of the same species that live together in the same area at the same time


An ecosystem is:

  • A community of organisms and their nonliving environment

  • The environment where an organism lives

  • All of the populations of different species that live and interact in an area


A herbivore is:

  • A consumer that eats animals

  • A consumer that eats animals and plants

  • A consumer that eats plants


A carnivore is:

  • An animal that feeds on the bodies of dead animals

  • A consumer that eats animals

  • A consumer that eats a variety of organisms


An omnivore is:

  • A consumer that eats animals

  • An animal that feeds on the bodies of dead animals

  • A consumer that eats a variety of organisms


A scavenger is:

  • An animal that feeds on the bodies of dead animals

  • A consumer that eats plants

  • A consumer that eats a variety of organisms


A habitat is:

  • All of the populations of different species that live and interact in an area

  • The environment where an organism lives

  • A community of organisms and their nonliving environment
