Biology A Learning Targets Unit 2: Community Ecology 1. I can define and give an example of each: Abiotic Autotroph Biomes Biosphere Biotic Carnivore Commensalism Community Competition Consumer Decomposer 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Detritivore Ecology Ecosystem Food Chain Food Web Habitat Herbivore Heterotroph Limiting factor Mutualism Niche Omnivore Parasitism Population Predator Producer Scavenger Symbiosis I can list the levels of ecological organization in order starting with the smallest & explain each I can differentiate between habitat and niche I can create a food chain with at least 4 trophic levels I can create a food web from a list of organisms I can organize organisms by trophic level I can identify the 3 types of ecological pyramids and understand what they mean to an ecosystem I can explain that energy is lost as heat when it is transferred between trophic levels I can predict how changes to one trophic level will affect those above or below it (e.g. overhunting) I can identify the key components to the carbon-oxygen and nitrogen cycle.
