Introduction to Ecology

By:

Brianna Shields

Do now have current event out on your desk
DO NOW- have current event out on your desk

  • 1. What is the primary source of energy on the planet?

  • 2. What is a “baby” frog called?

  • 3. What process do autotrophs carry out in order to make glucose and oxygen?


GOAL

  • To define ecological vocabulary words

  • To distinguish between several biomes

  • To differentiate between the ecological relationships found in nature


Ecology video questions
Ecology Video Questions

  • 1. What is a community?

  • 2. What is a population?

  • 3. What is a habitat?

  • 4. What is a niche?


Ecological relationships

Ecology

Study of the relationships between living things and the environment

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships1

Biosphere

Thin zone of life above and below earth’s surface

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships2

Biome

Portion of biosphere with specific temperature and amount of rainfall

Tundra

Rainforest

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships3

Ecosystem

Living and nonliving things in an environment

Ex:

Ocean

Forest

River

Lake

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships4

Community

All the living organisms that share the same environment

Ex:

A community of trees, flowers and reptiles

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships5

Population

One type of species living in an area

Ex:

Population of Zebras

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships6

Habitat

An organism’s “special place” or home in an ecosystem

Ex:

Swallow (bird) habitat = tree

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships7

Niche

An organism’s specialized job within an ecosystem

Ex:

Tiger= carnivore- eats other animals (meat)

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships8

Abiotic Factors

Non living things in the environment

Ecological Relationships


Ecological relationships9

Biotic Factors

Living things in the environment

Ecological Relationships

Biomes

Tundra

1. Cold, snow, ice

2. Short summers

3. Poor soil, permafrost

4. Flat ground

5. Very few plants and animals

Ex: reindeer, fox

Biomes




Biomes1

Deciduous Forest

1. Trees that shed leaves

2. Moderate temperatures

3. Good water supply

4. Many animals

Biomes




Biomes2

Coniferous Forest

1. Pine trees

2. Cold temperatures in winter

3. Thick forests, little sun

4. Not many small plants

5. Animals: squirrel, deer, mountain lions, fox, birds, insects

Biomes



Biomes3

Grassland/ Savannah

1. Lots of grass

2. Moderate temperatures
