30/03/2014 Ecosystems “Ecosystem” is a term used to describe all of the organisms living together as a community in a particular habitat. Ecosystems are constantly changing: Changes in ecosystems Changes in population due to predation, disease etc Human interference Physical changes (e.g. temperature change) Pollution Changes in soil conditions
30/03/2014 Classification of Plants We all know that there are many different types of plants, so how do we classify them?
30/03/2014 Taking samples of an ecosystem Using different “sampling techniques” we can measure changes in an ecosystem. The two main measurements are: 1) The physical conditions of a habitat (temperature etc) 2)The populations of different species in that habitat Some common ways of measuring… Measuring temp, pH etc Taking animal samples Help! Taking samples using quadrats

30/03/2014 Pyramids of number In this food chain we can see that the number of organisms in each stage is less than in the previous stage: Cabbage Rabbit Stoat Fox We can draw a “Pyramid of Numbers” to show this pattern: Lots of cabbages Some rabbits A few stoats One fox
