Ecology scavenger hunt!!

Abiotic VS Biotic
Abiotic means non living and Biotic means living. An example is that Dani is a living human being, and the trashcan next to her is an object which is non living.
Autotroph VS Heterotroph
This picture is an example of Autotrophs and Heterotrophs because Max, who is a heterotroph can't produce his own food so they depend on other organisms to live. An example is plants.
Predator and prey
The lizard is the predator, who is after the prey which is the cricket.
the ant nest is an example of commensalism because the ants nest is right by a garden of flowers, and the ants collect nectars from the flowers and benefit from them.
A mosquito bite is an example of Parasitism because the mosquitos feed off of human. They benefit out of the expense of others.
The tree, nose and air represent the carbon cycle. We breathe in carbon dioxide and release it into the air through respiration.
Cars pollute the air with nitrogen oxides.
The bird and the tree represent mutualism because birds find their shade and homes in trees and feel safe to make their home on the branches. Bird seeds help pollen of trees to spread which help with tree growth.
