Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Glossary of Ecology"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Acid Mine Drainage

  1. Acid Mine drainage is the mining industry's biggest problem and Australia's worst case is at Mt.

Amensalism

  1. Amensalism is a symbiosis where members of one population inhibit the growth of another while being unaffected themselves.
  2. Amensalism: a one-sidedly harmful relationship between dissimilar organisms.
  3. Amensalism is an interaction where one species suffers and the other interacting species experiences no effect.

Aphotic Zone

  1. Aphotic zone is the zone in which most photosynthetic algae cannot survive, due to light deficiency.

Applied Ecology

  1. Applied ecology is the practice of employing ecological principles and understanding to solve real world problems.

Aquatic Biomes

  1. Aquatic biomes are not influenced as much by air temperature and precipitation as by salinity, water temperature, nutrients, currents, waves, and depth.
  2. The aquatic biomes are the water ecosystems.

Atmosphere

  1. Atmosphere - The gaseous mass enveloping the Earth.
  2. Atmosphere is the gaseous mass or envelope of air surrounding the Earth.
  3. The atmosphere is a source of CO because nonmethane hydrocarbons (NMHCs) are oxidized to that compound by OH*.
  4. The atmosphere is one of the four components, together with the Lithosphere, Hydrosphere, and Biosphere, that comprise the earth's ecosystem.
  5. The atmosphere is the air surrounding the planet.

Autotroph

  1. Autotroph - Any organism that is able to manufacture its own food.
  2. Autotroph: An organism that needs only simple inorganic compounds to grow, such as carbon dioxide.
  3. Autotroph: An organism that synthesizes organic molecules from inorganic starting materials through photosynthesis or chemosynthesis.
  4. Autotroph: an organism that produces its own food.

Benthic Zone

  1. BENTHIC ZONE: The bottom layer of a body of water.
  2. The benthic zone is the area below the pelagic zone, but does not include the very deepest parts of the ocean (see abyssal zone below).
  3. The benthic zone is the sea floor from the beach out.

Biochemical Oxygen Demand

  1. Biochemical oxygen demand is a measure of the quantity of oxygen used by these micro-organisms in the aerobic oxidation of organic matter.
  2. Biochemical oxygen demand is a process that occurs over a period of time and is commonly measured for a five-day period, referred to as BOD5.

Biocoenosis

  1. Biocoenosis is the life in the area and the biotope is the environment by which life is influenced.

Biocomplexity

  1. Biocomplexity is a fairly new term, and I think it's still being defined by ecologists and other scientists.

Biodegradation

  1. Biodegradation is the decomposition of organic material by microorganisms.

Biodiversity

  1. BIODIVERSITY: The wide diversity and interrelatedness of earth organisms based on genetic and environmental factors.
  2. Biodiversity - The number and variety of different organisms in the ecological complexes in which they naturally occur.
  3. Biodiversity is a better word than biological diversity, which literally means variety in the knowledge of life.
  4. Biodiversity is a broad concept, so a variety of objective measures have been created in order to empirically measure biodiversity.
  5. Biodiversity is a crucial natural resource.

Biogeography

  1. Biogeography is the study of past and present distributions of individual species in the context of evolutionary theory.
  2. Biogeography is the study of the distribution of species and entire communities over time.
  3. Biogeography is the study of the past and present distribution of individual species and entire communities.

Biomass

  1. BIOMASS: The total dry weight of all organisms in a particular sample, population, or area.
  2. Biomass - The dry weight of a species population per unit of area.
  3. Biomass - The quantity of living matter, expressed as a concentration or weight per unit area.
  4. Biomass - The weight of living organisms.
  5. Biomass is the actual mass of living material in a natural system.

Biome

  1. A biome is a distinct ecological community of plants and animals living together in a particular climate.
  2. A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a large region as tundra or steppe s.
  3. A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a large region as tundra or steppes.
  4. A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a vast region, such as tundra or steppe s.
  5. A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a vast region, such as tundra or steppes.

Biomes

  1. Biomes - A grouping of all the ecosystems of a similar type, such as grasslands, tropical forests, etc.
  2. Biomes - a major terrestrial climax community.
  3. Biomes are categorized by their dominant plants which also indicate types of communities and ecosystems.
  4. Biomes are classified in various ways.
  5. Biomes are collections of ecosystems with similar organisms and environments and, therefore, similar ecological properties.

Biosphere

  1. A biosphere is a region where life can exist.
  2. Biosphere - All the living communities of the world.
  3. Biosphere - The area on and around the earth where life exists.
  4. Biosphere - The portion of Earth and its atmosphere that can support life.
  5. Biosphere - the part of the Earth and its atmosphere in which living things exist.

Biotope

  1. A biotope is an area of uniform environmental (physical) conditions providing habitat(s) for a specific assemblage of plants and animals.
  2. A biotope is an environmentally uniform region characterized by a particular set of abiotic ecological factors.
  3. Biotope: an environmentally uniform area.

Carbon Cycle

  1. Carbon Cycle: The circulation of carbon through ecosystems.
  2. Carbon Cycle: the passage and recycling of carbon through the plantary biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere.
  3. Carbon cycle - The sequence of events by which carbon and oxygen move within the ecosystem.
  4. Carbon cycle is the process of removal and uptake of carbon on a global scale.
  5. The carbon cycle was shown in the first picture on this page, and more of it will be discussed in the section on global problems and global warming.

Carrying Capacity

  1. Carrying capacity is a property of the environment, and it varies over space and time with the abundance of limiting resources (food and space).
  2. Carrying Capacity: the maximum poplation an ecosystem can support of a given species.
  3. Carrying capacity - The maximum number of individuals of a species that an ecosystem is capable of supporting.
  4. Carrying capacity is a flexible tool which begins to define standards and thresholds to use in management and regulation.
  5. Carrying capacity is the larges number of people that can be adequately supported by a given area of land.

Celss

  1. CELSS is an acronym for C ontrolled (or C losed) E cological L ife S upport S ystem.
  2. CELSS was first pioneered by the Russians during the infamous " Space Race " in the 1950s-60s.

Chaparral

  1. CHAPARRAL: A thicket of low evergreen oaks or dense tangled brushwood (Begon et al.).
  2. Chaparral is a biome dominated by evergreen shrub vegetation.
  3. Chaparral is a fire-adapted community.
  4. Chaparral is a temperate biome that develops in environments where precipitation varies widely from season to season.

Climate Change

  1. Climate change is a huge worry because we are destabilizing the Earth's climate, which can lead to widespread crop failure.
