Ecosystem

Observe the environment around the school.


Record things that you see refer to topic about
ecosystem
Define the term of :
1. Habitat
2. Environment
3. Abiotic
4. Biotic
5. Population
6. Community
7. Ecosystem
Ecology  the study of living things in their
environment

Ecologist??
Habitat  The place where an organism lives
Enviroment  everything around that could
affect its survival
a. Abiotic environment (non-living thing)
b. Biotic enviroment (Living thing)
Define the defenition of population, community and
ecosystem!
Individual  a single organism in an
environment
Population  a group of organisms within the
same species that live together in a habitat
Community  all the population (all the plants,
animals and microorganisms) that live in a
habitat
Ecosystem  the community of living things and
environments which interact with each other
Biome is ecosystem which form cause of
distinction of climatically and geographically
Biosphere is global sum of ecosystem or zone
live on the earth
Terrestrial biome, based on latitude, humidity, elevator:
 Desert
 Grass land (savanna)
 Tropical rain forest
 Taiga: sub arctic coniferous forest
 Tundra : arctic plain
Ecosystem

A
Ecosystem consist of 2 component :
Abiotic components  Water, soil, rocks,
sand, air , light, temperature, humidity
Biotic component  plant, animal and
microorganism
Based on their roles in ecosystem, biotic
component is classified into :
Producer : Organisms that produce food
(usually plant)
Consumer : organism that eats plants, other
animals or both (herbivore, carnivore and
omnivore)
Decomposer : organism that decompose dead
and decaying organisms (bacteria and fungi)
The various
populations in any
community live
interdependently

Biotic component
Types of Species Interactions

 Predation  interaction between


two organisms (Predator and Prey)

 Competition  interaction between


two organisms that are using the
same limited resource

 Symbiosis  a close relationship between two or


more different species
Symbiosis

Your home work!!


Find out defenition and examples of each
symbiosis
Work in group
• create an example of food chain and food web
(including you in a food chain)!
• Explain how the energy is transferred in food
chain!
• What is ecological Pyramids?
• Construct energy pyramid, number pyramid
and biomass pyramid from the food chain!
Food Chain
 a series of organisms through
which energy is transferred in the
form of food.

A food chain always begins with a


producer
Energy Flow
• Energy in an ecosystem originally
comes from the sun
• Energy flows through Ecosystems
from producers to consumers
–Producers (make food)
–Consumers (use food by eating
producers or other consumers)

• Sunlight is the main source of
energy for most life on earth.
• Producers contain chlorophyll &
can use energy directly from
the sun
Energy flows through an
ecosystem in one direction
from producers to various levels
of consumers
• Autotrophs are also called
Producers
Ex. Plants, algae & some bacteria
(Cyanophyta)

Name the Producer, Consumers &
Decomposers in this food chain:

Food web
A food web consist
of interlinked food
chains
A pyramid of food is a composition of food
chains which the higher the level position the
lesser quantity
Trophic level  stage in a food chain

Ecological Pyramids
Graphic Representations Of The
Relative Amounts of Energy or
Matter At Each Trophic Level
Energy Pyramid
Biomass Pyramid
Pyramid of Numbers

Energy Pyramid

Energy flow in an ecosystem is non-cyclic. Energy is


37
lost to the environment as heat.
• Only about 10% of energy is stored inside the
body of an organism
Biomass Pyramid

Compare the mass of


organism present in
each trophic level at a
particular time

copyright cmassengale 39
Pyramid of Numbers

Compare the number of


organism present in
each trohic level at a
particular time

1. What kind of sun energy might be used by
producer?
2. Write 3 organism belong to producer?
3. How many % of energy might be used by it own
organisms?
4. What is tropic level?
5. Write the organisms
occupy first tropic and
second tropic level?
