Abiotic

Abiotic means that it is not living. A clock is not alive.

Autotroph

An autotroph is an organisms that makes it own food. These trees make their own food.

Carbon Cycle

The carbon cycle is the circulation of carbon from the atmosphere into organisms and back again. This is four ways how carbon dioxide is released into the environment and one way carbon is taken out.

Humans release carbon dioxide into the environment when we breathe out.

Water Cycle

The water cycle is the path water takes when circulating from land up to the sky and back again. These pictures represent water being on the ground and soon going back into the sky by the water cycle.

Nitrogen Cycle

The nitrogen cycle describes how nitrogen moves between plants, animals, the atmosphere and soil.

Phosphorus Cycle

The phosphorus cycle is the process of phosphorus traveling through ecosystems to living organisms.

Mutualism

A mutualistic relationship is when two organisms both benefit from their relationship. In this picture we see a bee getting food from the plant and the flower gets pollenated.

Commensalism

A commensalism relationship is one of the two organisms get benefited. A cast is a commensalism relationship because the cast heals the injured persons bone and the cast gets nothing from it.

Parasitism

A parasitism relationship is when one of the organism benefits from the other one while the other organism is harmed. Lice is a parasitism because lice grow in the hair of the human and the person is harmed.
