What are the three levels in the energy pyramid? How much gets lost each time?
Producers, Secondary and Primary. 90% gets lost each time.
How does a niche differ from a habitat?
A niche is it's job and a habitat is the enviroment around it.
Through what process does most water vapor enter the atmosphere?
What is meant by interconnectedness or interdependence?
All organisms are affected by the living and nonliving organisms.
What is ecology?
The study of reactions between organisms, living and non living components of the enviroment.
What is biodiversity?
The genetic # and variety of organisms in a given area during a specific period of time.
What are different ways a habitat can be altered?
By addding or taking away resources.
What are the four factors that can change a population size?
Birht Rate, Death Rate, Immigration and emmigration.
What are producers, consumers and decomposers?
Producers are autotrophs that capture sun energy to make organic molecules. Consumers eat other organisms to get their energy. Decomposers break down dead organisms to make nutrients.
What are biotic and abiotic factors?
Biotic factors are the living components of the enironment. Ex:Plants
Abiotic factors are the nonliving components of the environment.
Ex:Oxygen & Humidity
What is the difference between a food chain and a food web?
food chain is a single pathway.
Food webs show the interconnectedness between organisms.
What are the three levels in the energy pyramid? How much energy gets lost each time?
90% gets lost each time
How does a niche differ from a habitat?
Aniche is its job and a habitat is the environment around it
Through what process doesmost water vapor enter the atmosphere?
Explain why the same area can support a greater # of herbivores than carnivores.
Because there has to be more energy to go up
Why is the aamount of sunlight important to the animals in an ecosystem?
The sunlight is where the energy is.,
What is acclimation? How does it differ from evolution?
Acclimation is an organisms adjustment to an abiotic factor. Evolution is how a species evolves or changes over a long period of time
