  • Slide 1
  • Goal 5: Ecology
  • Slide 2
  • Why Study Ecology interactions between organisms and their environments Ecology is the study of interactions between organisms and their environments Ecologist ask questions such as: What does a coyote eat How does temperature affect the growth of plants How does day length affect bird migration
  • Slide 3
  • Bio= life The sphere of life consists of living and nonliving factors. It supports all life. Biotic= living Abiotic=non-living
  • Slide 4
  • Make a Column of Biotic and Abiotic Factors BIOTIC -bacteria -grass -fungus -fish -mushrooms ABIOTIC -air -water -nitrogen -dirt -sun
  • Slide 5
  • Name the Abiotic and Biotic Factors
  • Slide 6
  • Levels of Organization
  • Slide 7
  • Organizing Living Things in Ecology First level (most specific)- Organism Individual living thing 2nd Level - Population Group of organisms all of one species
  • Slide 8
  • Organization continued 3rd Level - Biological Community All the living (biotic) populations of species that live in the same place at the same time
  • Slide 9
  • Organization cont. 4th level - Ecosystem Both biotic and abiotic things that interact with each other in given area at the same time
  • Slide 10
  • Finally The last level Fifth and biggest level - Biosphere Portion of Earth that supports living things
  • Slide 11
  • Organisms in Ecosystems Habitat vs. Niche Habitat = the place where an organism lives out its life Where you live One habitat can have many niches Niche = strategies and adaptations a species uses in its environment Organisms role in the habitat More than one species can not occupy the same niche in a location.
  • Slide 12
  • Bellringer Relate each one of the characteristics of life to the human body. Example: Genetic Code: My genetic information is contained in DNA and RNA
  • Slide 13
  • 5.01a Identify and describe symbiotic relationships Symbiosis Symbiosis = "intimate living together" between different species. Refers to the different relationships that can exist between organisms 1. Mutualism (+,+) 2. Commensalism (+, 0) 3. Parasitism (+, -) 4. Predator-Prey cycle
  • Slide 14
  • Mutualism
  • Slide 15
  • Mutualism clownfish and anemone The clownfish gets protection from the anemone and in return protects the anemone from fish that would eat it (angelfish); the clownfish also keeps the anemone free of dirt and debris http://www.bigfishhooked.com/clown_fish_and_anenome.jpg
  • Slide 16
  • Mutualism Lichens and Algae Lichens consist of a fungus with an algae or photosynthetic bacterium living inside the fungus. The alga provides food for both of them and the fungus provides a habitat for the alga. tbnid=7aE_8wrZkK9LJM:&tbnh=111&tbnw=148&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dlichen%26start%3D20%26ndsp%3D2 0%26svnum%3D10%26hl%3Den%26lr%3D%26sa%3DN
  • Slide 17
  • Mutualism Ant and Aphid Aphids provides honeydew sugar for ants. Ants protect the aphids from predators and parasites. http://www.richsoil.com/antsandaphids/ants_aphids_sugar.jpg
  • Slide 18
  • Mutualism sea slug with algae The algae lives in the sea slug and makes food for both of them in return it gets a place to live. http://www.calacademy.org/science_now/new_species/melibe_digitata.html
  • Slide 19
  • Nitrogen fixing nodules Bacteria in the nodules can take nitrogen gas from the atmosphere and turn it into a form that can be used by the plant; in return, the plant protects the bacteria from harmful oxygen and the bacteria get food from the plant. http://www.mobot.org/gardeninghelp/images/pests/179.jpg
  • Slide 20
  • Mutualism - pollination Many plants depend on pollinators for their reproduction. They provide nectar to attract these pollinators. So the pollinator gets fed and the plant gets reproduced! http://www.life.uiuc.edu/help/digitalflowers/picts/Asteraceae/15-Liatris%20pollination.jpg
  • Slide 21
  • Protozoans in cows stomach These protozoans along with bacteria help the cow by digesting cellulose; cows dont have the enzymes to do this. http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/dlc-me/zoo/zac0278.jpg The protozoans and bacteria get a place to live and a continual food source. This is a valuable mutualistic relationship.
  • Slide 22
  • Ants and Acacia Trees http://www.agrotours.com/bio/cr13.jpg Acacia provides ants with a protein rich secretion. Ants protect tree from herbivores.
  • Slide 23
  • Commensalism
  • Slide 24
  • Cattle Egret - Commensalism The cattle stir up grasshoppers and other insects that the egret likes to eat. There is no apparent benefit to the cow.
  • Slide 25
  • Commensalism shark and remora The remora benefits by getting food from the sharks meal. But there is no apparent benefit to the shark. http://www.scubaduba.com/gallery/shark2.jpg
  • Slide 26
  • Commensalism whale and barnacle Barnacle larvae attach to the whale. The barnacle has a habitat. Whale is not harmed. http://www.coolantarctica.com/Antarctica%20fact%20file/wildlife/whales/humptail.jpg
  • Slide 27
  • Parasitism
  • Slide 28
  • Tick feeds on the blood of the host. The host loses blood or is subject to infection/death.
  • Slide 29
  • Mistletoe a plant parasite http://www.wcosf.org/other_photos/Mistletoe_1_600.JPG Mistletoe lives off the branches and stems of Other trees. The tree can be very harmed.
  • Slide 30
  • Predator-Prey In a predator-prey relationship one organism benefits and the other is killed.
  • Slide 31
  • Predator-Prey Cycle Prey Population = Predator Population More predators = more prey eaten Prey Population Goes = Predator Population Goes Less predators = less prey they eat Predator: hunts: wolf Prey: hunted: rabbit
  • Slide 32
  • Bubble Map Symbiotic Relationships Benefit Harmed No effect Mutualistic Commensalism Parasitism ** Examples of Each
  • Slide 33
  • We will be planting Great Northern Beans to grow plants. In your group, you must decide on an experiment that you want to perform. Brainstorm Ideas. Choose one. What do you want to find out? Can you develop an experiment to answer your question? Does your question make sense? Is it confusing? Step 2: Hypothesis What do you think will happen? BE SPECIFIC! Use complete sentences. Step 3: Start developing a procedure
