Ecological intercations
Consumers
Organisms that can not make their own food from inorganic molecules and energy are called consumers
Producers
Organisms that make their own food from inorganic molecules and energy are called Producers
Photosynthesis
Almost all producers capture energy from the sun and use it to make food throughPhotosynthesis. The reaction of Photosynthesis use the energy from sunlight to combine carbon dioxide and water to produce sugars. Nearly all the energy entering to Biosphere comes from Sun through Photosynthesis.
Herbivores
The animals that eat only plants are Herbivores. Since Herbivores eat only plants

HERBIVORES = PRIMARY CONSUMERS

Carnivores
Carnivores capture and eat herbivores or other Carnivores. Carnivores that eat primary consumers are called secondary consumers. Those eat other Carnivores are called Tertiary Consumers
Carnivores
Carnivores capture and eat herbivores or other Carnivores. Karnivores that eat primary consumers are called secondary consumers. Those eat other Carnivores are called Tertiary Consumers
Omnivores
Consumers that eat both producers nd consumers are Omnivores.
Omniovores act as Primary, Secondary and Tertiary consumers depending on what they eat.
Scavangers
Consumers that feed on the bodies of dead organisms. They also act as secondary, Tertiary or higher consumer, depending on what they eat.
Decomposers
BActeria and fungi that consumes the bodies of dead organisms and other organic wastes are called decomposers.
They consume a variety of dead organic matter from the fallen leaves of a tree, to the bodies of Herbivores and Carnivores
Devomposers are crucial to the ecosystem because they recycle nutrients from organisms back to the environment.
Trophic levels
Trophic levels are layers in the structure of feeding relationships in ecosystem. Producers make up the first level of and consumers make up several others trophic level.
Biomass
The total amount of organic matter present in a trophic level. Biomass is potentially food for the next trophic level. Because of this scientist follow the transfer of energy from one to other trophic level by measuring Biomass
Ecological Pyramid
Ecological Pyramid is a diagram that shows the relative amount of energy in different trophic levels of a ecosystem.
Biodiversity
A healthy ecosystem includes a variety of species in it’s community. The variety of species in an ecosystem is known as biodiversity.
Legumes
Legumes are plants such as peanuts,beans and clover that have colonies of nitogen fixing bacteria in a noudles of roots.
Nutrients
Nutirents are all the substances that an orginams requires from food all together.
Nitrates
Nitrates are the compound containing Nitrogen and oxygen. It is the most common source of nitogen for plants.
Species
A species is a group of orginisms so similar to one another that they can breed and produce fertile offspring.
Geographical range
The total area which a species can live its geofraphical range.
Geographical range
The total area which a species can live its geofraphical range.
Biologiclal mamnification
THe increasing concentrartion of a pollutatnt in orginsims in a higher trophic levels.
Communities
Allthe different populations that live and interact the same area make up a community.
Food chain
A seris of different orginsms transfers food between trophic levels of an eco-system
Food chain
A seris of different orginsms transfers food between trophic levels of an eco-system
DDT
DDT is a pesticide sprayed on crops to kill insects.
Evaporation
The movement of water into the atmosphere as it chages from a liquid to gas.
Transpiration
Transpiration is the evaporation of water from the leaves of plants
Precipitaion
The process of water returing to the earth’s surface-Rain,snow,hail and sleet
Carbon Cycle
Thorough the process of photosynthesis the plants consume CO2,water, and produce sugar and starch.When the living orginisms consume the nutrients they realese CO2 and waterto the atmosphere.Thi process is called carbon cycle.
