Study Notes

Biodiversity and Ecosystems

  • Biodiversity refers to the variety of different species of plants, animals, and microorganisms that live in an ecosystem or on Earth as a whole.

Habitats and Species

  • A habitat is the natural environment in which an organism or species normally lives or occurs.
  • A species is independent if it can survive and reproduce on its own without relying on another species.

Vertebrates and Invertebrates

  • The main difference between vertebrates and invertebrates is the presence or absence of a backbone.
  • Vertebrates have a backbone, while invertebrates do not.

Interdependence and Food Chains

  • Interdependence refers to the way different species in an ecosystem rely on each other for survival.
  • If one type of animal disappears, it may have a ripple effect throughout the ecosystem, potentially affecting other species that rely on it.
  • Disrupting the food chain, a series of organisms that eat other organisms, can have consequences for the entire ecosystem.

Species and Their Environments

  • If you match a bird to its habitat, it would most likely live in an environment that provides the necessary resources for its survival, such as food, water, and shelter.

Ecological Relationships

  • The term that best describes the relationship between plants and animals in an ecosystem is interdependence.

Key Characteristics of Biodiversity

  • The characteristic that best defines biodiversity is the variety of different species present in an ecosystem or on Earth.
