A. Describe how Abiotic components ( water , air , and energy ) affect the biosphere .
B. Recognize and give examples of the hierarchy of the biological entitles of the biosphere (organisms , populations , communities , ecosystems , and biosphere ) .
C. Characterize the components that define a Biome . Abiotic Factors - to include precipitation , temperature and soils . Biotic factors - plant and animal adaptions that create success in that biome .
D. Characterize the componets that define fresh-water and marine systems . Abiotic factors - to include light , dissolved oxygen , phosphorus, nitrogen , ph and substrate . Biotic factors - plant and animal adaptions characteristics to that system .
Example : Oak forest .
Biotic factors - living part of ecosystem
Example : Animals
Abiotic factors - Nonliving part of ecosystem
Exanmple : Water or rocks
Habitat - Theplace a organism lives .
Example : Tree
Artifical selection - selective breeding of organisms by humans for specific characteristics .
Protists - One celled organisms and their many celled relatives .
Acid - Having the properties of an acid ph 1-7 .
Base - Ph 8-14 .
Food chain - series of steps in which organisms transfer energy by eating and being eaten .
