  1. Introducing

  2. Eco logy Ecology the study of the relationships between biotic and abiotic factors in environments eco (G) root home, abode log, -o, y (G) suffix study of ecoclimate ecosystem ecotourism epidemiology climatology zoology

  3. Ecosystem includes all abiotic and biotic factors in one particular environment Biotic Factors Abiotic Factors the living parts of an ecosystem the nonliving parts of an ecosystem

  4. Bio Biotic Factors include plants, animals, fungi, microorganisms bio(s), bio(t) (G) root life biotechnology biomechanics biosphere biofeedback biostatistics biography biotic biology

  5. Examples of Biotic Factors

  6. A Abiotic Factors include air, water, soil, temperature, wind, source of energy (usually sun) a, an (G) prefix not, without abiotic amoral amusia atoxic

  7. Examples of Abiotic Factors

  8. Examples of Ecosystems Coral Reef in Belize Mountains in Colorado Arizona Desert

  9. Ecosystems do not necessarily have clear boundaries due to biotic and abiotic changes can change daily as things move from one ecosystem to another Biotic Abiotic migration, seed dispersal flood, erosion, drought

  10. Biotic Factors interact with each other in complex ways parasitism mutualism competition such as also interact with abiotic factors in the ecosystem dependent upon water, minerals, temperature, light

  11. Biome a major regional or global biotic community, a super ecosystem, defined chiefly by the dominant forms of plant life and the prevailing climate

  12. Major Biomes of the World desert grassland tropical rain forest deciduous forest coniferous forest tundra ocean

  13. biome ecosystem community population organism organ system organ tissue Levels of Organization smallest unit of living things large region with typical plants and animals that includes several ecosystems group of different kinds of tissues working together group of organs working together all living and nonliving things interacting within a certain area all organisms of the same kind living in one area all interacting populations in an ecosystem one individual living thing group of similar cells organized to work together cell
