Biotic

The picture above of Georgia represents something that is biotic. Something biotic something that is living.

Abiotic

The picture above is a clock. This clock is abiotic because it is physical rather than biological; it is not derived from a living organism. It is also not alive and living.

Autotroph

The grass is the picture above is an autotroph. It is an autotroph because it is an organism that is able to form nutritional organic substances from simple inorganic substances.
Big image

Heterotroph

The living organism in the picture above is a heterotroph. It is a heterotroph because it is an organism deriving its nutritional requirements from complex organic substances. In this picture, the organism is eating food and she can not make her own food.

Predator and prey relationship

The picture above shows two living organisms and they are predator and prey. The organism on the left is the predator and the thing on the right is the prey. The predator chases about the prey to try and catch her. This is a predator and prey relationship because the prey does not want to be caught by the predator.

Commensalism

The picture above of the pictures on the wall represents commensalism because commensalism is a relationship between two organisms in which one benefits and the other derives neither benefit nor harm. The pictures on the wall (and the people in the pictures) benefit from having their pictures put up because everyone can see them, and the wall neither benefits or gets harmed.

Parasitism

Parasitism is a form of symbiosis in which one organism (called parasite) benefits at the expense of another organism usually of different species (called host). The association may also lead to the injury of the host. The picture of the trash can is parasitism because the trash is benefiting from the trash can because it has a place to sit and not just lay around everywhere making messes, but the trash can may break down due to too much trash, and the trash can gets dirty because of the trash.

Carbon cycle (four ways carbon gets INTO the atmosphere)

The bus, airplane, car and Mariah breathing all represent how carbon gets into the atmosphere. Each time you exhale, you are releasing carbon into the air, which is why breathing is one of the ways. Airplane burns fuel which also releases carbon (dioxide) into the air, cars and buses burn gas and that is also releasing carbon into the air.

Food chain

The grass is the producer. The small organism on the left is the primary consumer, the organism in the middle is the secondary consumer, and the very tall organism on the very right is the tertiary consumer. This represents a food chain because the tallest/biggest take on the smallest.
