Ecology Review

Both consumers and producers are a source of food for Omnivores
Producers are Plants
Consumers are Animals
Animals that eat only plants are Herbivores
Animals that eat only meat are Carnivores
Animals that eat both plants and animals are Omnivores
Living organisms in an ecosystem are considered to be these factors Biotic
Temperature, sunlight, and amount of rainfall are examples of these factors. Abiotic
What eats only producers? Primary Consumers
What eats primary consumers? Secondary Consumers
Secondary consumers are usually Carnivores
What eats secondary consumers? Tertiary Consumers
What is at the very top of the food pyramid? Tertiary Consumers
In this chain: Caterpillar --Plant---Frog----Water Snake - What position is the frog in? Secondary Consumer
When both organisms benefit from the relationship, what type of symbiosis is this? Mutualism
What type of symbiosis is it when one organism benefits but the other is harmed? Parasitism
A remora fish riding on the belly of a shark is an example of this type of symbiosis. Commensalism
A heart worm inside a dog would be this type of symbiosis. Parasitism
A clown fish living in a sea anemone would be this type of symbiosis. Mutualism
Organisms that break down decaying plant and animal material are Decomposers
What happens to energy as one moves up the energy pyramid? About 90% is lost and only 10% is passed up and is available for the next level above
There are more ___________ than producers. Consumers
One bear would be a(n) ______. Organism or Species
One or more of the same species is called a Population
Two or more populations make up a Community
A community with the abiotic variables included (sunlight, rainfall, temperature, etc) make up an Ecosystem
When one organism benefits but the other organism isn't helped or harmed is this type of symbiosis. Commensalism
How many primary consumers would 30,000 producers support? 3,000 primary consumers (30,000 divided by 10)
How many secondary consumers would 30,000 producers support? 300 secondary consumers (30,000 divided by 10, and then that number divided by 10 again.
How many tertiary consumers would 30,000 producers support? Only 30 - 30,000 divided by 10, answer divided by 10, and answer divided by 10.
Other words for plants are Autotrophs and producers
Other words for animals are Carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, heterotrophs and comsumers
The original source for all energy on Earth is the Sun
Which has more? Producers or Consumers? Producers
Primary consumers are only Herbivores
Tertiary consumers are only Carnivores
Secondary consumers might be either of these Carnivores or Omnivores
Three types of symbiosis are Mutualism, commensalism and parasitism
