Intro to Ecology


  • Ecology – study of the relationship between organisms and their living and nonliving environment

    • Biotic factors – living factors

      • Predators, prey, competitors, parasites, mutualism, etc

    • Abiotic factors – nonliving factors

      • Precipitation, soil type/rocks, temperature, wind, sunlight, altitude


Levels of ecological organization
Levels of Ecological Organization their living and nonliving environment

  • Population

  • Community

  • Ecosystem

  • Biosphere

    • Atmosphere

    • Ecosphere

    • Hydrosphere

    • Lithosphere


Biomes
Biomes their living and nonliving environment

  • Large areas (ecosystems) of the earth with typical types of organisms

  • They are determined primarily by temp & water availability


Angle of light intensity what s the effect on climate
Angle of Light their living and nonliving environmentIntensity – what’s the effect on climate?


Seasonal changes
Seasonal Changes their living and nonliving environment


Precipitation patterns
Precipitation Patterns their living and nonliving environment


Wind patterns
Wind Patterns their living and nonliving environment


Water moderating effects
Water Moderating Effects their living and nonliving environment


  • Ocean currents can make areas near them warmer or colder than other parts of the world at same latitude

  • Rainshadow effect

    • Moist air from ocean rises up the mountains and cools – rain falls

    • Drier air then passes over the mountains and warms as it falls – absorbing moisture

    • Areas inland from the mountains are drier – (rainshadow) – lack of rain
