WordsWhat they mean
Ecology Study of interactions of living organisms with one another and with their physical environments
Habitat The place where a particular population of a species live in its habitat
Community the different species that live together in a habitat
Ecosystem ecological system, consitst of a community and all the physical aspects
Abiotic Factors aspects of a habitat
Biotic Factors organisms in a habitat
Biodiversity the variety of organisms and their genetic differences and ecosystems in which they occur
Pioneer Species the first organisms to live in a new habitat
Succession Regular progessions of species replacement
Seconadary Sucession Secondary succession is one of the two types of ecological succession of plant life. As opposed to the first, primary succession, secondary succession is a process started by an event.
Primary Productivity Synthesis of organic materials (biomass) by green plants using the energy captured in photosynthesis
Consumers Synthesis of organic materials (biomass) by green plants using the energy captured in photosynthesis
Trophic Level 1.Each of several hierarchical levels in an ecosystem, comprising organisms that share the same function in the food chain and the same nutritional relationship to the primary sources of energy
Food chain A hierarchical series of organisms each dependent on the next as a source of food
Producers Produces organisms in an ecosystem that captures energy
Herbovore An animal that feeds on plants
Carnivore An animal that feeds on flesh.
Omnivore An animal or person that eats food of both plant and animal origin
Detritivore An organism that feeds on detritus or organic waste.
Decomposer An organism whose ecological function involves the recycling of nutrients by performing the natural process of decomposition as it feeds on dead or decaying organisms
Food web A system of interlocking and interdependent food chains
Energy Pyramid An ecological pyramid (or trophic pyramid) is a graphical representation designed to show the biomass or biomass productivity at each trophic level in a given ecosystem
Biomes 1.A large naturally occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat, e.g., forest or tundra
Biogeochemical 1.Relating to or denoting the cycle in which chemical elements and simple substances are transferred between living systems and the environment
Ground water underground water that is held in the soil and in pervious rocks
Transpiration The evaporation of water through leaves of plants
Nitrogen fixation 1.The chemical processes by which atmospheric nitrogen is assimilated into organic compounds, esp. by certain microorganisms as part of the nitrogen cycle
