SLS Bio Ecology (CG)

SLS Bio11 Ecology (CG)

carrying capacity the amount of organisms a specific area can hold without leading to the decline of organism population
Cellular respiration the process that takes part hand in hand with photosynthesis, using its products to give fuel for other organisms
Chemical Equations the written process in which chemicals interact and go through.
climax community the point where an area can hold two or more species allowing them to live there indefinitely
commensalism a biotic relationship where one of the organisms involves where the other organism is neither harmed or helped
Consumer an organisms that relies off of producers and their products
cyclic growth a pattern population numbers take on when two species depend on each others population to grow and fall
decomposer an organism that lives to break down dead matter in order to return their nutrients back into the soil
density dependent factors a variable that effects the growth of population numbers
density independent factors a variable that has no effect on the rise and fall of population numbers
ecological succession the process an area goes through to evolve by the means of the organisms inhabiting there.
energy flow the amount of energy that gets passed on thorough trophic levels
exponential growth for population numbers to grow extremely quickly and vigorously
logistic growth population pattern that at first resembles exponential growth until it is paralyzed and forced to stop/level out
mutualism a biotic relationship where both the organisms involved benefit from their doings.
parasitism a biotic relationship where one organism benefits and the other is harmed from the actions taken on by one of the organisms
photosynthesis the process which plants/consumers take in sunlight and CO2 to produce oxygen, H2O, and glucose the reactants in cellular respiration.
pioneer species the first species to take inhabitance in a primary succeeded environment Ex.Lichen
population the number of specific species living in a specific area
producer an organism that takes energy from the sun, most basic level of energy flow most commonly found as plants
products matter that comes out of reactions chemical and biotic
pyramid of energy flow the hierarchical flow of energy from producers to all types of consumers
reactants matter that combine and take on different changes to produce products chemical and biotic
steady state the action of an area to be stable in resources, population, and size
sysmbiosis broader way to look at mutualism and the action of mutually benefit organisms in a relationship
