3 3.1 Community Ecology Communities A biological community is a group of interacting populations that occupy the same area at the same time. Oasis
4 3.1 Community Ecology Limiting Factors Any abiotic factor or biotic factor that restricts the numbers, reproduction, or distribution of organisms is called a limiting factor. Includes sunlight, climate, temperature, water, nutrients, fire, soil chemistry, and space, and other living things
5 3.1 Community Ecology Range of Tolerance An upper limit and lower limit that define the conditions in which an organism can survive The ability of any organism to survive when subjected to abiotic factors or biotic factors is called tolerance.
6 3.1 Community Ecology Ecological Succession The change in an ecosystem that happens when one community replaces another as a result of changing abiotic and biotic factors is ecological succession. There are two types of ecological succession primary succession and secondary succession.
7 3.1 Community Ecology The establishment of a community in an area of exposed rock that does not have any topsoil is primary succession.
9 3.1 Community Ecology The orderly and predictable change that takes place after a community of organisms has been removed but the soil has remained intact is secondary succession.
10 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Effects of Latitude and Climate Weather is the condition of the atmosphere at a specific place and time. One of the keys to understanding these communities is to be aware of latitude and climatic conditions.
11 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes The distance of any point on the surface of Earth north or south from the equator is latitude.
12 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes The average weather conditions in an area, including temperature and precipitation, describe the area s climate. The graph shows how temperature and precipitation influence the communities.
13 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Biomes are classified by their plants, temperature, and precipitation. Visualizing Global Effects on Climate
14 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Tundra Average precipitation: cm per year Temperature range: -34 C 12 C Geographic location: South of the polar ice caps in the Northern Hemisphere Abiotic factors: soggy summers; permafrost; cold and dark much of the year
15 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Boreal Forest Average precipitation: cm per year Temperature range: -54 C 21 C Geographic location: northern part of North America, Europe, and Asia Abiotic factors: summers are short and moist; winters are long, cold, and dry
16 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Temperate Forest Average precipitation: cm per year Temperature range: -30 C 30 C Geographic location: south of the boreal forests in eastern North America, eastern Asia, Australia, and Europe Abiotic factors: well-defined seasons; summers are hot, winters are cold
17 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Temperate Woodland and Shrubland Average precipitation: cm per year Temperature range: 10 C 40 C Geographic location: surrounds the Mediterranean Sea, western coast of North and South America, South Africa, and Australia Abiotic factors: summers are very hot and dry; winters are cool and wet
18 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Temperate Grassland Average precipitation: cm per year Temperature range: - 40 C 38 C Geographic location: North America, South America, Asia, Africa, and Australia Abiotic factors: summers are hot; winters are cold; moderate rainfall; fires possible
19 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Desert Average precipitation: 2 26 cm per year Temperature range: high: 20 C 49 C; low: -18 C 10 C Geographic location: every continent except Europe Abiotic factors: varying temperatures; low rainfall
20 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Tropical Savanna Average precipitation: cm per year Temperature range: 20 C 30 C Geographic location: Africa, South America, and Australia Abiotic factors: summers are hot and rainy; winters are cool and dry
21 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Tropical Seasonal Forest Average precipitation: >200 cm per year Temperature range: 20 C 25 C Geographic location: Africa, Asia, Australia, and South and Central America Abiotic factors: rainfall is seasonal
22 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Tropical Rain Forest Average precipitation: cm per year Temperature range: 24 C 27 C Geographic location: Central and South America, southern Asia, western Africa, and northeastern Australia Abiotic factors: humid all year; hot and wet
23 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Mountains If you go up a mountain, you might notice that abiotic conditions, such as temperature and precipitation, change with increasing elevation.
24 3.2 Terrestrial Biomes Penguins in Antarctica Polar Regions Border the tundra at high latitudes Polar regions are cold all year.
25 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Freshwater Ecosystems Only about 2.5 percent of the water on Earth is freshwater.
26 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Rivers and Streams The characteristics of rivers and streams change during the journey from the source to the mouth.
27 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Fast-moving rivers and streams prevent much accumulation of organic materials and sediment. Usually, there are fewer species living in the rapid waters. In slow-moving water, insect larvae are the primary food source for many fish, including American eel, brown bullhead catfish, and trout.
28 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Lakes and Ponds The temperature of lakes and ponds varies depending on the season.
29 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Lakes and ponds are divided into three zones based on the amount of sunlight that penetrates the water. The area closest to the shore is the littoral zone.
30 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems The limnetic zone is the open water area that is well lit and is dominated by plankton.
31 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems The profundal zone is the deepest areas of a large lake. It is much colder and lower in oxygen than the other two zones.
32 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Transitional Aquatic Ecosystems Areas of land such as marshes, swamps, and bogs that are saturated with water and that support aquatic plants are called wetlands. Bog
33 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Marine Ecosystems The intertidal zone is a narrow band where the ocean meets land. Communities are constantly changing in this environment as a result of disturbance.
34 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Open Ocean Ecosystems The photic zone is shallow enough that sunlight is able to penetrate.
35 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Open Ocean Ecosystems Below the photic zone lies the aphotic zone an area where sunlight is unable to penetrate.
36 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Open Ocean Ecosystems The benthic zone is an area along the ocean floor that consists of sand, silt, and dead organisms.
37 3.3 Aquatic Ecosystems Open Ocean Ecosystems The deepest region of the ocean is called the abyssal zone. Communities and Biomes
