Aquatic habits and terrestrial biomes
How organisms interact with their environment
Effects of exoict and native speices (with little human help?)
Population ecology
Estimating population size
Population Growth
LAST MATERIAL TO BE ON QUIZ 2
Ecology = dramatic way, bio diversity is spread all over the planet, b/c
various biomes are shinking b/c of human civy at different rates
1)General Ecology
2)Population ecology
TEST #2 7:00PM MARCH 20th 30 MC & WA 2/3 DQ and 1/3 DE
Understand the conceptual information and apply what you’ve learned!
Ecology:
Eco = House or abode
ology= the study of
the study of our enviorment anf how our organisms interact with it
the environment can be dieved into:
Abitoic non living attibues
Biotic living attirbutes and conspecifics – the presense of other human
being dense city vs. rural habitat
Biotoic – stucutre and indivuails that compete with us (pred, prey ect)
Canada’s most biodiveres habitiats
Wetlands! Were losing our wet lands at a rapid pace.
(a) Bogs are standnat and acidic – moss growns over stagnant
areas non nutienant rich enviorments qwacking bogs – like a
floating carpet
Unproducitive habitiat – interesting plants – quaking bogs –
wainfleet bog a couple insectivious plants – a plant cover in
hair in sap and when they land they get stuck and slowly
holds the insect in tis left till it dies – sun dews, picher plants
(like a cylinder – water in the bottle and hair like sturtuces
that traps you)

Only pages 1-2 are available for preview. Some parts have been intentionally blurred.

(b) Marshes are very productive with vegetation – cat tails
(coots paradise) no trees
(c) swamps have trees and shrubs and are flooded.
Productive marine envirment: estuaries – where fresh and slat
water meet
some species will move around in this habits and can control
asmatic balance
Terestial Biomes
scattered all over the world, lay out of the world and how there
spread out – altitiual pattern
Trestial Bio –types
Tropical Wet forest
All kinds of plants
Very rich very diverse with species
Not easy to capture the idea of biomes easier to understand
by their climatic conditions
Low variation in temp in tropoical location
particitate high – but a seasonality to it – high variation
Subtropical desert – Arizona
Saguaro cacti – in dry and not always hot
tempture dose change and low annual rain fall vartion is low
Temperate Glasslands –midwest
Butterfly yokeweed
Moderate avge temp vation moderate (high)
