Animal Classification

NEURONS!Next year, this could be touched up a lot. This being the first time, there are areas where I already see potential improvements. The lab should reinforce the points at the end better.2Bell Work 1/28/2015Select all of the biotic components of this ecosystem that you can find:

.3Welcome!ItineraryBiological Components of an ecosystem

Announcements:To stay up to date, download Celly and look for james.wamplerTodays Learning Target:

I can form an opinion about the strengths and weaknesses of a design and defend my reasoning

4NEW UNIT:Construct an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect population


Evaluate competing designs for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services

=-+AbioticBiotic5Biological (Biotic) Components of an EcosystemBiotic components:the living factors or organisms of an ecosystemPredators:An animal that hunts other animals for foodPrey: An organism that is killed and eaten by another organism

6Things to keep in mind:The Jenga AnalogyEcosystems can be very fragile. The need support, security and redundancy. When you create an imbalance, it becomes very easy to topple something that used to be very robust.

Actions have consequences.

71. Producers (Plants) prey - make their own food1. Use suns energy to make own food 2. Photosynthesis stores energy in organism as carbohydrate 4 Biotic Components of an Ecosystem2. Consumers- get energy from what they Eat1. Primary consumers - Herbivores- eat producers (plants)2. Secondary consumers- eat herbivores. Can be:Carnivores- meat eaterOmnivores- meat and plant eater3. Tertiary Consumers- top predator in an ecosystem

3. Scavengers- eat and start the break-down of dead consumers 4 Biotic Components of an Ecosystem4. Decomposers- break down remains to release nutrients back into environment

12Ecosystem ComplexityEcosystems are much more complex than you would think.

13(II. cont. Physical Relationships in an Ecosystem)F. Symbiotic Relationships- close relationship between two organism that is important for survival of one or both1. Mutualism- both organisms benefit- shark and remora2. Parasitism- one organism is harmed while the other benefits, does not result in immediate death of the harmed organism- dog and heartworm3. Commensalism- one organism benefits, the other is not harmed- Viceroy Butterfly strongly resembles toxic Monarch (III. Population Balance)Population Balance among producers and consumers is essential for preservation of an ecosystem.Carrying Capacity- the largest population of a species that an ecosystem can support over time.C. Changes to one population will impact other populations

(III. Population Balance)D. Limiting Factors- any biotic or abiotic resource change that restricts the number of individuals in a population1. Climate changes2. Competition3.Predation4. Living Space5. Food sources6. Human interference

IV. Energy Relationships within Ecosystems

A. Energy is conserved within an Ecosystem through the relationships among producers and consumers. (IV. cont Energy Relationships within Ecosystems)

B. Trophic or Energy Pyramid- a way to visually organize species in an ecosystem that shows how much energy is used and produced by different species in the ecosystem. (IVB. cont. Trophic or Energy Pyramid)1. Species that produce more energy than they use at the bottom levela. Greatest number of organism present at this bottom levelb. Producers use photosynthesis 2. At each higher level, organisms require (consume) more and more energy and produce less and less energya. Fewer total organisms at each successive higher levelb. Primary, Secondary and Tertiary Consumers3. Species that use the most energy at the top level a. few in numberb. Tertiary consumerIVC. Trophic or Energy Web1. A visual way to show how all species, both producers and consumers, in an ecosystem depend on each other.2. Looks like a spider web3. Different species of producers and consumers are connected to several other species they interact with by lines of the web.4. Arrows indicate direction of energy flow and relationships among species IV. BiodiversityA. Biodiversity is the variety of life in an ecosystemB Factors that influence BiodiversityWarmer climate- closer to equator tends to increase biodiversityMoisture added to warmth leads to most biodiversityTropical regions contain 2/3 of Earths species

Asian Carp Article22How do we obtain empirical evidence?Since empirical evidence is obtained through experimentation, measurement and/or observation (EMO)

you must either engage in experimentation, measurement and/or observation - - or cite reliable sources that have done the EMO for you.

How do we do these things when the populations we wish to study are not available to us?23New Seats!7A 7B 7C 7D

28Exit SlipHow do you think that changes in the fish population have affected the ecosystem of the river? Give a few examples from the article.

Do you think the solution was effective? Do you have suggestions for improving the solution?29I. Parts of an Ecosystem Abiotic- nonliving parts of an ecosystem- Water, sun, soil, rocks Biotic any living part of an ecosystem (B. Continued- Biotic Factors)Organism- living thingSpecies- organisms with similar traits, who are able to reproduce among their groupNative Species- species present naturallyIntroduced Species- species brought in to an ecosystemInvasive species- non-native species that endangers the ecosystem by outcompeting or predationIndicator species-a species whose presence, absence or general health indicates the overall balance and sustainability of an ecosystem3. Population- all of one species living an an ecosystem

(B. Continued- Biotic Factors)4. Community- all the different populations in an ecosystem5. Ecosystem- a community of organisms and the Abiotic factors where they live6. Habitat- where an organism physically lives, its home in the ecosystem6. Niche- organisms position within its community, includes habitat, status as producer or consumer, etc.

II. Physical Relationships in an EcosystemA. Producers- make their own food1. Use suns energy to make own food 2. Photosynthesis stores energy in organism as carbohydrate (II. cont. Physical Relationships in an Ecosystem)B. Consumers- get energy from what they Eat1. Primary consumers-Herbivores- eat producers (plant eaters)2. Secondary consumers- eat herbivoresCarnivore- meat eaterOmnivore- meat and plant eater3. Tertiary Consumers- top predator in an ecosystem (II. cont. Physical Relationships in an Ecosystem)C. Scavengers- eat and start the break-down of dead consumers D. Decomposers- break down remains to release nutrients back into environment (II. cont. Physical Relationships in an Ecosystem)E. Adaptations for survival-1. Mimicry- resemble some other organism2. Protective coloration- general color blends with surroundings3. Camouflage- pattern of colors break up outline and blend in (II. cont. Physical Relationships in an Ecosystem)F. Symbiotic Relationships- close relationship between two organism that
