Review
Review

  • Describe 5 characteristics of living things.

  • What is the definition of a cell?

  • What happens to an organism if its homeostasis is disrupted and not restored?


Some vocabulary

Ecology is the study of interactions that take place between organisms and their environment

Abiotic factors are nonliving parts of an organism’s environment

Biotic factors are living organisms that inhabit an environment

A Habitat is a place where an organism lives out its life.

A Niche is all strategies and adaptations a species uses in its environment—how it meets specific needs for food and shelter, how and where it survives, and where it reproduces

Some Vocabulary


Levels of organization
Levels of Organization

Biosphere

The part of Earth

that contains all

ecosystems

Biosphere

Ecosystem

Community and

its nonliving

surroundings

Hawk, snake, bison, prairie dog, grass, stream, rocks, air

Community

Populations that

live together in a

defined area

Hawk, snake, bison, prairie dog, grass

Population

Group of

organisms of one

type that live in

the same area

Bison herd

Comprehension check
Comprehension Check

  • Give two examples of abiotic factors.

  • Give two examples of biotic factors.

  • What is the difference between an ecosystem and a community?

  • Give an example organism and describe it’s habitat.


Types of biotic relationships

1. Feeding - one organism eats another

a. predator - organism that hunts another

organism

b. prey - organism that is hunted

c. ex: lions feeding on a water buffalo


2. Symbiosis - close relationship between two or more organisms; at least one organism benefits:

The sacoglossan (Solar Powered Sea Slug)

showing the green network of ducts

which contain the green chloroplasts

from its algal food.

Two quite different groups of sea slugs have evolved

ways of using the ability of plants to convert the sun's

energy into sugars and other nutrients. In simple terms

they have become "solar powered".

The aeolid nudibranch Pteraeolidia ianthina which

"farms" colonies of brown single-celled algae

(zooxanthellae) in its body.


a. Commensalism- one organism benefits,

the other is neither helped nor harmed

The commensal shrimp Periclimenes imperator

b. Mutualism- both organisms benefit

from living together.

Lichen is any group of composite organisms made up of a fungus and an alga living in a symbiotic association. Fungus provides a structure that protect the alga from drying out and from harsh conditions.

Alga synthesizes and excretes a

specific carbohydrate that

is taken up and utilized as

food by the fungus.


c. Parasitism - one organism depends/ lives in or on another organism, the other organism is harmed. Ex: lamprey and vampire bat

Sea lamprey attached to

trout.

Vampire bat which feeds

on the blood of mammals

like cows.

Sucker like

mouth

of lamprey
