Presentation Transcript


1. 1 What is Ecology?

2. 2 Organisms and Their Environment

3. 3 What is Ecology?? The study of interactions that take place between organisms and their environment. It explains how living organisms affect each other and the world they live in.

4. 4 The Living Environment Biotic factors- all the living organisms that inhabit an environment. All organisms depend on others directly or indirectly for food, shelter, reproduction, or protection.

5. 5 The Nonliving Environment Abiotic factors- the nonliving parts of an organismís environment. Examples include air currents, temperature, moisture, light, and soil. Abiotic factors affect an organismís life.

6. 6 Habitat & Niche Habitat is the place a plant or animal lives Niche is an organismís total way of life

7. 7 Abiotic or Biotic?

8. 8 Abiotic or Biotic?

9. 9 Abiotic or Biotic?

10. 10 Abiotic or Biotic?

11. 11 Levels of Organization

12. 12 What are the Simplest Levels? Atom Molecule Organelle Cell Tissue Organ System

13. 13 Levels of Organization Ecologists have organized the interactions an organism takes part in into different levels according to complexity.

14. 14 1st Level of Organization Organism: An individual living thing that is made of cells, uses energy, reproduces, responds, grows, and develops

15. 15 2nd Level of Organization Population: A group of organisms, all of the same species, which interbreed and live in the same place at the same time.

16. 16 3rd Level of Organization Biological Community: All the populations of different species that live in the same place at the same time.

17. 17 4th Level of Organization Ecosystem: Populations of plants and animals that interact with each other in a given area with the abiotic components of that area. (terrestrial or aquatic)

18. 18 5th Level of Organization Biosphere: The portion of Earth that supports life.

19. 19 The Biosphere Life is found in air, on land, and in fresh and salt water. The BIOSPHERE is the portion of Earth that supports living things.
