QuestionAnswer
All the living and non-living things that surround an organism is the organisms environment
All the living and non-living things in an environment and the ways they affect one another is an ecosystem
The nonliving things that affect the organism that are not caused by other organisms are Abiotic Environmental Factors
The living things that affect the organism that are caused by other organisms are Biotic Environmental Factors
Organisms that live together and often depend on one another for food and other requirements make up a community
An enclosed area where plants and animals are kept for research or observation is a terrarium
A group of the same kind of organism living in the same area is a population
The maximum population size in an area that the resources can support is the carrying capacity
Any living plant or animal is an organism
Any condition that influences the growth or survival of an organism or species is a limiting factor
When one organism in its community is the organism's niche
The number of individuals per unit of living space is an ecosystem is the population density
The place where a population lives is the population's habitat
A specific interaction between two species over a long time is known as symbiosis
The transfer of food energy as organisms feed on other organisms is known as a food chain
The way an organism acts towards its ecosystem is its behavior
Anything in the ecosystem that causes an organism to react is a stimulous
The action of an organism as a result of the stimulous is the organism's response
Would the sun shining bright be a stimulous or a response stimulous
Would shielding your eyes from the bright sun be a stimulous or a response response
Behaviors an animal is born with and is passed on from generation to generation are called innate behavior
A behavior that is taught is a learned behavior
A trait that helps an organism to survive in a particular ecosystem is an adaptation
A cactus having spikes is an example of a structural or behavioral adaptation structural
Something that can be changed in an experiment is a variable
The set of environmental conditions that an organism appears to choose over other conditions is the organism's preferred environment
The ability of an organism to survive under a given set of conditions is the organism's tolerance
The varying conditions of one environmental factor in which an organism can survive is the organism's range of tolerance
Environmental conditions that are the best conditions for an organism are known as what kind of conditions optimum
An aquatic environment is on that has to do with water
A terrestrial environment is one that has to do with the soil
Phototropism is when a plant grows towards the sun
Geotropism is when a plant's roots grow down into the soil because of gravity
The most energy in an energy pyramid is found at the bottom
Where does energy for an ecosystem come from sun
A herbivore is an animal that only eats plants
A carnivore is an animal that eats other animals
An omnivore is an animal that eats plants and animals
Is a carnivore a primary or secondary consumer secondary
Are a scavenger and a decomposer the same thing No
Do both scavengers and decomposers eat living things No
Does a scavenger eat dead animals Yes
Does a decomposer break down what the scavenger leaves behind Yes
What two things do living things need in order to survive Energy and Matter
Is a herbivore a primary or secondary consumer primary
Is weather an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Are plants an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Biotic
Is climate an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Is temperature an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Is light an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Is water an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Is soil an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Is pollution an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Are chemicals an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Are minerals an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Abiotic
Are plants an Abiotic or Biotic environmental factor Biotic
