Niche
The way in which an organism exploits its habitat
1 of 13
Can more than 2 species occupy the same habitat?
No , because this would lead to interspecific competition + even the extinction of one species
2 of 13
Species
Whereby 2 individuals can interbreed to produce fertile offspring.
3 of 13
Allele frequency
The number of a particular allele of a gene in a population
4 of 13
Gene pool
All the different allele in a species/population combined
5 of 13
Habitat
Where an organism lives
6 of 13
Abiotic factors
The non-living elements/factors of a habitat
7 of 13
Biotic factors
The living factors of a habitat
8 of 13
Population
A group of individuals of the same species found within an area
9 of 13
Community
A group of different organisms occupying the same habitat
10 of 13
Ecosystem
A life supporting environment, which includes all the interaction of species
11 of 13
