  • 1.1 Populations and Ecosystems
    • Ecosytems
      • Biotic and abiotic organisms within a specific area. Two main processes:
        • The flow of energy through the system
        • The cycling of elements within the system
    • Populations
      • A group of interbreeding organisms of one species in one habitat
    • Communities
      • All the different populations interacting at one place at one time.
    • Habitats
      • A place where an organism lives.
      • Micro-habitat
        • A smaller habitat within a habitat eg. mud at the bottom of a stream
    • Ecological Niche
      • The specific role an organism plays in its habitat
