Biodiversity - Range of species in a given area (or number)
Describe the biodiversity of the planet Earth .
The bioversity is high in the equator and is low in the poles.
Explain the pattern.
- Colder at the poles.
- Hotter at the equator.
- Enzyme have highest rate of reaction at around 37 oC ( Optimum level ).
- A range of species can survive.
Evolution - The development of one species to another over a very long period of time.
Natural Selection - The selective pressure selects for the weakest member of species." Survival Of The Fittest ".
Adaptation - When a species characteristics are suited to its enviroment e.g. Colour of an organism allows them to camoflauge.
