Exploring the varietes of ecology

Ecology is the study of the processes by which a society adapts to its environment. Its principal problem is to determine whether these adaptations initiate internal social transformations or evolutionary change. It analyzes these adaptations, however, in conjunction with other processes of change. Its method requires examination of the interaction of societies and social institutions with one another and with the natural environment. ; Ecology is the study of biomes being biotic and abiotic factors in the ecosystem

Amur tigers live in a harsh environment, where extremely cold temperatures and deep snow are common. Their body is well-adapted to the cold climate. Take their large size, for instance. A big animal conserves heat better than a small one, so it's no surprise that Amur tigers are larger than other tiger subspecies, which live in warmer areas.

Populations are made up of all the members of a species living in the same place at the same time. A community includes all the populations of the area. The community and the abiotic factors make up a ecosystem.An individual is one of itself in the ecosystem.

The heron in my picture  the biotic factors it depends on is the fish in the lake and the grass in the area. And the worms as well, the abiotc factors in this picture would have to be the wind and the sun and the water.

The difference between a community and a ecosystem

A community describes only the living organisms and their interactions with each otherAn ecosystem describes all the living organisms (biotic components) with their physical su

Plantae : multicellular with cell walls made of cellulose http://www.chacha.com/question/is-the-kingdom-eukaryotic

Food consumption: photosynthesis (absorbs light)

Reproduction: both sexual and asexual

Environments: land and water

Hetero / Chemo / Autotrophic: Autotrophic


Body type: both unicellular and multicellular

Prokaryotic / eukaryotic: eukaryotic

Food consumption: by photosynthesis (algae)

Reproduction: both sexual and asexual

Auto / Chemo / Heterotrophic: auto and heterotrophic

Phylum Zoomastigophora:
- have flagella ( tiny hair like structures for movement )
-some colonial


Body type: unicellular or multicellular  Eukaryotic

Food consumption: throught absorbtion

Reproduction: both sexual and asexual

Environments: marine, terrestrial, fresh water

Number of species: about 100,000

Animalia is determined by evolutionary traits of an animal, and are grouped below the kingdom level. The largest phyla in kingdom animalia are phylums: Mollusca, Porifera, Cindaria, Platyhelminthes, Nematoda, Annelida, Arthropoda, Echinodermata, and Chordata, our own phylum.

The lion is the top predator in it's environment. They help control the gazelle, zebra, and other large herbivore population.Without lions and other predators, the large herbivores would overproduce and graze out the entire area. Lions are also heterotroph,Lions are tertiary consumers because they are the biggest predators.

A consumer is an organism that feeds on others: in an ecological community or food chain, an organism that feeds on other organisms, or on material derived from them.

Producers are those organisms that use photosynthesis to capture energy from sunlight, water and carbon dioxide to create carbohydrate.  When a plant or animal dies,  A decompser leaves behind nutrients and energy in the organic material that comprised its body. Scavengers and detritivores can feed on the carcasses, but they will inevitably leave behind a considerable amount of unused energy and nutrients.

The sun is a abiotic factor because made up of gases being it does not reproduce or made entirely of cells. The wind is also a abiotic factor because it is basicly a gust of air only producing oxygen. and the clouds are abiotic being that they are ice particles no more no less.

One or more communities in an area and the abiotic factors, including water, sunlight, oxygen, temperature, and soil. Individual ecosystems grouped together according to the climate and the predominantvegetation and characterized by adaptations of organisms to that particular environment. The particular role of an organism in its environment including type of food it eats, how it obtains its food and how it interacts with other organisms is called its niche.
