A structural adaptation is that enables the organism to better survive its environment
A behavioural adaptation is that enables the organism to better survive its environment
A physiological adaptation is that enables the organism to better survive its environment
When penguins huddle together for warmth, this is a behavioural adaptation.
Seed pods opening from the heat of bushfire is a behavioural adaptation
Penguins having different, individual calls is a structural adaptation
Check the following behavioural adaptations:
Penguins huddling together for warmth
Seed pods opening under heat from a bushfire
Long, deep reaching roots to evade drought
when reptiles bask in the sun
sweating when its hot
An adaptation enables an organism to
What is mutualism?
an interaction where one species benefits while the other is unaffected.
an interaction where both organisms benefit
an interaction where one organism at the expense of another
In parasitism, the suffers while the benefits.
Commensalism is an interaction where one organism benefits while the other is unaffected
harmed( unaffected, harmed )
use the sun or stored energy to make their own food, while depend on other organisms for food and energy.
heterotrophs are consumers
Check the examples of abiotic features
quality of soil
check the examples of biotic features:
amount of sun
average wind speeds
Biotic is the living features of an environment
Abiotic is the living features of an environment
Examples of biological control are:
Introduction of a predator species to reduce numbers of a pest
culling of populations of pests
breeding programs that aim to increase the numbers of a species
Omnivores( Herbivores, Carnivores, Omnivores ) eat only plants
Omnivores( Carnivores, Herbivores, Omnivores ) eat mostly meat
Carnivores( Omnivores, Herbivores, Carnivores ) eat both plants and meat
scavengers( predator, prey, scavengers ) kills other animals for food. The hunted animals are called predator
scavengers( predator, prey, scavengers ). predator
scavengers( predator, prey, scavengers ) will eat the remains of other animals, or attack sick or dying animals.
Producers( Decomposers, Autotrophs, Producers ) break down/absorb waste and dead organisms
A producer is...
an organism that kills other organisms for food
an organism that creates its own food
an animal who eats both plants and meat
a group of bacteria that aid the growth of plants and trees
A consumer gets energy from eating other organisms
The trophic levels, in order, are:
The arrows in food chains and webs show...
energy flow up the food chain
that organism 2 is eaten by organism 1
that organism 1 is eaten by organism 2
Biomass shows the combined mass of living organisms in a certain area
