Section 1

(50 cards)

Primary succession

Front

Occurs endangered habitats when an island rises from the sea or when rocks and soil are deposited

Back

Succession

Front

The process by which a species in a community or replaced overtime

Back

Community

Front

A group of interacting individuals of a single species located within a particular area

Back

Producers

Front

Organism that capture light energy and converts it into chemical forms the process of photosynthesis

Back

Exploitative competition

Front

Species compete indirectly for a shared resource

Back

Density dependent

Front

When birth and death rate changes as the density of a population changes

Back

Relative species abundance

Front

The number of individuals in a species in a given Community compared to the individuals of the other species in the community

Back

Ecosystem

Front

Consists of communities or organisms together with the physical environment they share

Back

Coevolution

Front

Two species that interact May trigger evolutionary change in each other as a consequence of their interactions what's your what did you ask her

Back

Consumers

Front

Obtain their energy and nutrients by eating other organisms

Back

S shaped

Front

A population grows in nearly exponentially at first but then stabilizes at the maximum population size

Back

Diversity

Front

Species richness and relative species abundance

Back

Population

Front

A group of interacting individuals of a single species located within a particular area

Back

Secondary succession

Front

The process by which communities regain this exceptional state that existed before a disturbance

Back

How do communities change over time

Front

...

Back

Mutualism

Front

Both species benefit

Back

Competition

Front

When two species share an important limited resource

Back

Mimicry

Front

New type of adaptation arising from predatory cray interactions in which a species evolves to imitate the appearance of something unappealing to its would be predator

Back

keystone species

Front

Sturgeon species have disproportional large effects relative to their own abundance on the types and abundance of other species in a community these influential species are called keystone species

Back

Commensalism

Front

One species benefits and no cost to the other

Back

Growth limiting factors

Front

Minecraft space disease Predators food shortages

Back

Warning correlation

Front

Bright colors or striking patterns

Back

Exploitation

Front

One species benefits and the other is harmed

Back

Types of exploitation

Front

Herbivores predators and parasites

Back

Biotic

Front

Having to do with life

Back

Exponential growth

Front

Occurs when a population increases by a constant rate over a constant time

Back

Induced defenses

Front

Responses that I directly stimulated by the tracks from herbivores

Back

Decomposers

Front

Breakdown the tissue from once-living organisms to obtain their energy

Back

Primary composers

Front

Krill

Back

Species richness

Front

The total number of different species that live in a community

Back

Causes of changes

Front

When animals die or give birth and when they come and when they go

Back

Carry capacity

Front

Maximum population size that can be sustained in a given environment

Back

Niche

Front

Sum total of the coordination and resources a species or population needs in order to survive and reproduce successfully in its particular habitat

Back

Species interactions

Front

Mutualism commensalism exploitation competition

Back

Abiotic

Front

The atmosphere water in Earth's crust

Back

Symbiosis

Front

Mutualistic species live together

Back

Growth rate

Front

Birth + immigration Death + emigration

Back

In a population with an s shaped growth curve after an initial period of Rapid increase the number of individuals

Front

Drops rapidly

Back

Competitive exclusion

Front

The inferior competition eventually losing so much ground to the superior rifle that it becomes extinct

Back

How do you calculate the population density

Front

Divide the population size by total area

Back

Net primary productivity

Front

The amount of energy captured by photosynthesis organisms minus the amount big spend on site of respiration

Back

K

Front

Density dependant

Back

Population density

Front

The number of individuals per unit of area

Back

R

Front

Density independent

Back

Competition

Front

Both species may be harmed

Back

Density independent

Front

Populations are held in check by factors that are not related to the density of the population

Back

Population size

Front

The total number of individuals in the population

Back

Interference competition

Front

One organism directly excludes another from the use of a resource

Back

NPP

Front

Energy acquired through photosynthesis

Back

Exponential growth or j-shaped

Front

Increases at a constant rate

Back

Section 2

(7 cards)

Each step in the food chain is called a what

Front

Trophic level

Back

Nutrient cycling

Front

The movement of nutrients between organisms and the physical environment

Back

Net primary productivity

Front

The amount of energy captured by photosynthesis minus the amount lost as metallic paint

Back

Nitrogen fixation

Front

Bacteria converts molecular nitrogen into ammonium ions

Back

Secondary composers

Front

Seal

Back

Teritary consumer

Front

Killer whale

Back

Carbon cycle

Front

The transfer of carbon with biotic communities between living organisms and their physical surroundings with the abiotic world
