An example of an abiotic factor is temperature because it is a physical, yet nonliving factor that shapes and ecosystem.
An example of an autotroph is grass because it converts energy from the sun and turns it into food through photosynthesis.
An example of biodiversity is a rainforest because it has several species of living organisms living in the same area.
An example of biomass is the average mass of lizards living in a desert because it is the total mass of a specific organism in a trophic level.
An example of a biome is deserts because they have the same climate and organisms within a trophic level.
An example of a biosphere is the atmosphere because that is where life exists.
An example of a biotic factor is algae because it affects the organisms in an ecosystem.
An example of a carbon cycle is when a moose breathes, releasing CO2 into the atmosphere, which is absorbed by plants through photosynthesis, which are then eaten by a moose in a never-ending cycle.
An example of commensalism is a clownfish living in anemone because the clownfish gets shelter in the tentacles, while the anemone is neither helped nor harmed.
An example of a community is a prairie because several organisms live together in the same defined area.
An example of a decomposer is a worm because it helps break down plant matter while obtaining energy from it.
An example of ecology is water ecology because it studies the interactions among organisms and their environment in the water.
An example of a food chain is a Saharan food chain because grass is eaten by zebras, which are eaten by lions; thus transferring energy by eating and being eaten.
An example of a food web is a forest food web, where trees produce acorns, which are eaten by mice, which are eaten by raccoons, weasels and snakes, which are eaten by hawks and owls—a complex food chain.
An example of a habitat is the intestinal tract because it houses several bacteria such as E. coli.
An example of a heterotrophy is an eagle because it obtains energy by eating other animals.
An example of a homeotherm is a human because they can regulate their internal temperature and metabolism without being affected by the temperature change.
An example of a marine ecosystem is the ocean because it is a water-based ecosystem.
An example of mutualism is a rhino and a tick-bird, because the bird removes the ticks from the rhino, helping the rhino clean itself, and the bird gets food, benefiting both the rhino and the tick-bird.
An example of a niche is a predator, because a niche is a specific trophic level in which species compete to be a part of.
An example of parasitism is a heartworm and a heart, because the heartworm grows in the heart, giving the worm a habitat and feeding it hear muscle, while it weakens the heart.
An example of a poikilotherm is a cricket because its metabolism is affected by temperature.
An example of a population is a group of raccoons living in a small forest because it is a group of the same species living in the same area.
An example of a producer is grass because it captures energy from sunlight to produce food.
An example of a quadrat is a meter-by-meter plot of land marked off for ecological study because a quadrat is used for observing a small part of an ecosystem, and it must be a square or rectangle.
An example of a scavenger is a vulture because it feeds off of organisms that are already dead.
An example of a sentinel species are frogs, because when they suffer from strange mutations, it lets humans know that there is something polluting the water.
An example of a terrestrial ecosystem would be a forest, because it is a land-based ecosystem.
An example of a trophic level is a producer, like grass, because they are a step in a food chain or web.
An example of a water cycle is when water in the ocean evaporates into water vapor, which condensates, forming clouds, and then it precipitates back to Earth in an endless cycle.
