Glossary
Habitat ­ the place where an organism lives
Population ­ all the individuals of one particular
species found in a ecosystem at a given time
Community ­ sum of all organisms in a ecosystem
Abiotic ­ non living
Biotic ­ living
niche ­ how the species functions in its habitat
Adaption ­ a feature an organism has that
increases its chance of survival and reproduction
Birth rate -> number of births per 1000 people per
year
death rate -> number of deaths per 1000 people…read more

Populations & Ecosystems
An ecosystem is a self supporting system of
organisms interacting with each other and
their physical environment
Interactions include:
- Competition for resources
- Feeding relationships
Every species occupies a different niche, they
have different eating patterns ect...
If a species tries to occupy the same niche then
they will compete, one will outcompete the
other.…read more

Here's a taster:

Factors affecting population
size
Population size is dependent on the availability of
resources
Biotic and abiotic factors can limit population
growth
Main biotic factor = competition:
Interspecific -> competition between different
species
Intraspecific -> competition between same
species
Main abiotic factors:
CO concentration -> plant populations only
Mineral ion availability -> plant populations only
Light intensity -> plant population only…read more

Here's a taster:

biotic factors that influence population size:
-predation -> reduces the prey population
-disease causing organisms ->population slowed
-competition
The predator prey relationship
the populations size of the predators and prey are
interdependent
Increase in prey numbers means more food for
predators
Predator numbers increase
Predators kill more prey, so prey population
decreases
Less food for predator, so predator population
decreases
Less predators to kill prey, so prey population
increases…read more

awful spelling is quite distracting, but apart from that it's concise and useful
