Biotic VS. Abiotic
The non-living things in an
ecosystem are called ABIOTIC
Examples : water, rocks, soil, air, temperature, wind, carbon dioxide, nutrients, sunlight.
THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE 6 KINGDOMS OF LIFE
* Food – Cannot make their own food.
* Multi-cellular organisms
Reproduction – Asexual and sexual
Examples – Humans, crustaceans, spiders, insects, fish, birds, mammals, sponges, hydras, coral, worms, etc.
Examples of Animals
* Food – make their own food by photosynthesis.
Reproduction – Sexually and asexually
Examples – rose, cactus, grass, daisy, ferns, trees
Examples of Plant Kingdom
* Food – do not make their own food. Decomposers
* Unicellular and multicellular.
Reproduction – Sexual and Asexual
Examples – yeast, mushrooms, mold, mildew, athletes foot, ringworm
Examples of Fungi
Bread mold magnified
* Food – Some make their own food (plantlike); others cannot (animal-like).
* Unicellular and Multi-cellular
Reproduction – Asexual & Sexual
Examples – Euglena, paramecium, amoeba, slime mold, volvox, algae,diatoms, giant kelp
Examples of Protists
*Food – Some can make their own food: other cannot.
* Unicellular organisms.
Reproduction – asexual
Roles: decomposers, food makers, help digest food, clean oil spills, makes nitrogen rich soil(helps plants grow), etc.
Examples of Eubacteria
Bacteria help digest food
Blue green algae
This hot, sulfur-rich, acidic pool in Yellowstone National Park is home to species of Archea, including Sulfolobus.
Some archaens live 1000’s of miles deep in the ocean near superheated volcanic vents.
* Food- Some cannot make their own food; others do.
* Unicellular organisms
Reproduction – asexual
Three main types – salt loving, heat loving, and methane makers, harsh environments
Which kingdom does each organism belong?
ABIOTIC FACTORS AND THEIR AFFECTS ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Includes the average temperature and rainfall for a region. All organisms are adapted for the climate they live. Climate determines the different biomes.
1. Fire – Fire can be good or bad. It
destroys habitat and food. Some plants
need a fire for their seeds to germinate.
