Key concept prokaryotes perform important functions for organisms and ecosystems

KEY CONCEPTProkaryotes perform important functions for organisms and ecosystems.


Key concept prokaryotes perform important functions for organisms and ecosystems

Power Notes

Describe two ways bacteria provide nutrients to humans.

Which two gasses do bacteria help recycle in the ecosystem?

-Make Vitamins

-Break down food

-Food Production

(i.e. yogurt and pickles)

Define bioremediation

Give an example of bioremediation and describe how it works.


Prokaryotes provide nutrients to humans and other animals

Prokaryotes provide nutrients to humans and other animals.

  • Prokaryotes live in digestive systems of animals.

    • make vitamins

    • break down food


Key concept prokaryotes perform important functions for organisms and ecosystems

  • yogurt, cheese

  • Bacteria help ferment many foods.

  • pickles, sauerkraut

  • soy sauce, vinegar

Power Notes

Describe two ways bacteria provide nutrients to humans.

Which compounds do bacteria help recycle in the ecosystem?

-Make Vitamins

-Break down food

-Food Production

(i.e. yogurt and pickles)

-Oxygen

-Nitrogen

-Carbon

-Sulfur

Define bioremediation

Give an example of bioremediation and describe how it works.


Prokaryotes play important roles in ecosystems

Prokaryotes play important roles in ecosystems.

  • Prokaryotes have many functions in ecosystems.

    • photosynthesize

    • recycle carbon, nitrogen,hydrogen, sulfur

    • fix nitrogen

Process that uses microbes and other living things to break down pollutants

Bacteria can digest oil from an oil spill and break it down into harmless chemicals.
