The study of relationships between living things
and between living things and their environment.

We talked about things that we consider Living,
Non-Living and Dead. We even came up with our own
definitions.
Living things that have lifeBreath, Grow,
Reproduce, Consume food and Water
Non- Living things that were never alive
Dead - things that once were alive

Other "Eco-" words
Ecologist - a person who studies
ecology Ecosystem - all life is connected in a
delicate balance called an ecosystem.
- all living things do 1 of 3 thing in
an ecosystem. They are producers,
consumers or decomposers
Eco comes from a Greek word meaning "home"
10
Producers
An organism that can produce its own food
Consumers
From the Glossary
An organism that cannot produce its own food and
must eat other organisms
Decomposers
An organism that breaks down materials so they
can be reused by the ecosystem
11
Producers
Organisms that contain chlorophyll and that are
able to produce their own food
From the Text ( Index)
Consumers
Organisms that rely on plants for food
Decomposers
Organisms that recycle matter
12
Ecological Niche
It is the way of life or role of an organism
13
Factors in an organism's environment
Abiotic Factors factors that are
nonliving,physical factors of the
environment Examples amount of sunlight, the
strength of the wind, the amount of rain or
snow, the presence of fresh or salt water
Biotic Factors effects caused by other living
organisms Example If the seals move to another
area so must the bears.

Adaptations for Survival
In order for an organism to survive in its
ecosystem it needs to be able to adapt to its
environment. An organism does this in two
different ways behavioural adaptations physical
adaptations
What adaptations does this orangutan have?
22
orangutan adaptations
behavioural adaptations living among the trees,
protecting young,mating behaviours other examples
migration of birds, mating behaviours, spawning
of fish,hibernation,nocturnal hunting physical
adaptations opposable digits, long arms, hair,
strong muscles other exampleswings on birds and
insects, webbed feet on water birds,fins on fish
