Bio IH – Test Study Guide
Ecology

Be able to answer the following questions THOROUGHLY:

1. Identify the different levels of organization that ecologists study. 2. Give examples of populations, communities, ecosystems, biomes, niches, habitats and their interactions within an ecosystem. 3. Be able to trace the flow of energy through living systems. 4. Evaluate the efficiency of energy transfer among organisms in an ecosystem. 5. Compare food webs and food chains.

6. Describe why food chains are rarely longer than three or four links. 7. Describe the water, carbon, nitrogen, and phosphorous cycles.

Be sure to understand the following biology terms…give examples! If you can give examples and/or draw pictures of the following terms you will certainly understand their meaning.

1. Species
2. Population
3. Community
4. Ecosystem
5. Biome
6. Biosphere
7. Autotroph
8. Photosynthesis
9. Heterotroph
10. Omnivore
11. Herbivore
12. Carnivore
13. Detritivore
14. Decomposer
15. Food chain/web
16. Ecological pyramids (energy and numbers)
17. Biogeochemical cycles
18. Symbiosis
19. Mutualism
20. Commensalism
21. Parasitism
22. Limiting factors
23. Predator/prey relationships
24. Carrying capacity
25. Niche

This test covers a lot of information. If you study a little bit everyday, using this study guide, you will do AWESOME! Good Luck! 
