Exponential Increase → Very rapid growth of a species only possible if considerable resources are present and limiting factors are held to a minimum. produces a j-shaped curve.
Global Warming → Simplified view of the transfer of energy and material from one organism to another. They are never very long due to the tremendous energy lost at each step.
First Law of Thermodynamics → Ecosystems that are dependent on the fire for their reproduction and regeneration.
