    htm INTRODUCTION Ecology‚ the study of the relationship of plants and animals to their physical and biological environment. The physical environment includes light and heat or solar radiation‚ moisture‚ wind‚ oxygen‚ carbon dioxide‚ nutrients in soil‚ water‚ and atmosphere. The biological environment includes organisms of the same kind as well as other plants and animals. Because of the diverse approaches required to study organisms in their environment‚ ecology draws upon such fields as

    Ecology is the scientific study of interactions among organisms and their environment‚ such as the interactions organisms have with each other and with their abiotic environment. Topics of interest to ecologists include the diversity‚ distribution‚ amount (biomass)‚ number (population) of organisms‚ as well as competition between them within and among ecosystems. Ecosystems are composed of dynamically interacting parts including organisms‚ thecommunities they make up‚ and the non-living components

  • The Scope of Ecology

    1. Define ecology. Identify the two features of organisms studied by ecologists. Ecology is the scientific study of the interactions between organisms and the environment‚ which in turn determine both the distribution of organisms and their abundance. Ecologists study how interactions between organisms and the environment affect phenomena such as the number of species living in a particular area‚ cycling of nutrients in a habitat‚ and the growth of populations. 2. Describe the relationship between
