Types of Biotic Interaction
All biotic components of the ecosystem are interlinked with each other and Biotic interaction between the organism is fundamental for survival and functioning of ecosystem and determine the sustainability of the ecosystem.
Bio-accumulation and Bio-magnification
Higher concentration of these elements in the food chain creates a lot of serious problems and may even cause life-threatening diseases like cancer. The process of movement of toxic elements is of two type– Bio-accumulation and Bio-magnification.
Food Chain - Food Web And Ecological Pyramid
The trophic level interaction among the organisms leads to the formation of Food Web, Food Chain and Ecological Pyramid.
Energy Flow In An Ecosystem
Energy is the force which is required to get any work done and in case of living being it is a basic force that is responsible for all the metabolic Activities. Thus, energy flow is vital for the existence of life.
The biosphere can be thought of as one large ecosystem—a complex community of living beings and nonliving things functioning as a single unit. Read on to know more about biosphere
“Niche” is basically the ecological or functional role of a species in an ecosystem, especially with regards to food consumption. A niche can also be described as the interactions, a species has with its biotic and abiotic environment.
The Ecotone has the characteristics of the two bordering ecosystem. As a result, it has a very high density of organisms and variety of species can be found in an ecotone.
Components of an Ecosystem
The ecosystem consists of both the living and the nonliving components. Living organisms cannot live in isolation from their non-living environment. This is because the non-living environment provides materials and energy for the very survival of the living organisms
Ecology and Its Organization
Ecology is one of the disciplines of environmental science which studies reciprocal relationship between organisms within their environment, read on to know more about ecology
