Ecology

By: Gabriel Pugh

Ecology is the scientific study of interactions among organisms and their environment, such as the interactions organisms have with each other and with their abiotic environment.

Symbiosis is the type of relationships that the organisms have with each other one type is mutualism:  it's were to organisms work together to benefit from each other like the picture above  the cat gets the bugs out of her fur while the monkey gets something to eat

Another type of symbiosis is commensalism: when one creature benefits and the other is not effected like the picture above the clown fish live in the coral and for some unknown reason there the only fish that can survive there so it serves as a barrier for them. So they benefit and the coral is unaffected

The final type of symbiosis is parasitism: when one organism benefits and the other is harmed as you see in the picture above the mosquito is drawing blood from the host and benefiting while the other is being harmed by blood loss and possibility of disease   

The lion. Ancestor of the cat and one of the most powerful animal in the world and second largest cat species In the world right behind the tiger. They consume a wide variety of prey, from wildebeest, impala, zebra, giraffe, buffalo and wild hogs to sometimes rhinos, and hippos. They have been mostly found in Africa. In there environment there is tall grass and lots of animals around and they use it to there advantage as to hide in the tall grass and use there fur as camouflage.
individual: one organism
population: all the inhabitants in a area

Ants help each other with everything to reach a common goal  (commensalism) Ants have different jobs in the community so everybody has a job instead of all the ants at one job and not enough ants for the there job.
community: group of organisms
ecosystem: where one group of species live.

These ants depend On both biotic and abiotic factors  to survive for example they need dirt and other materials ( abiotic) to built there any bed and they each other ( biotic ) to help out the community so survive.

Plantae: have cell walls to keep form,chloroplast to make their own food, and exchange carbon dioxide for oxygen


animalia: consumers eats to stay alive,availability food also shapes there mutations,and exchange oxygen for carbon dioxide

fungi: consumers of dead things decomposes then returns nutrient to the ground,some are poisonous some are not, and they do not move there whole life

protista: uni  or multiple cellular organisms but most are single celled, some are parasites, and are microscopic

This is a food chain. And one organism the owl is the top consumer and gets most energy from the rest of the food chain except for the fungus which decomposes living things when they die and return nutrients to the soil. The owl is a heterotroph or a organism that has to hunt or consume other living things. Autotrophs are the opposite they can produce their own food.

This picture contains biotic factors such as the sun,rocks, and water and they all play a big role in life without these we would all die. Animals and other living things respond to all these. If it's to hot they go find shade if there's not enough water they go to father places to get water.

This concludes our presentation of ecology
