The largest population of any single species an area can hold that is determined by the available energy, water, oxygen and minerals available as well as by the interaction of organisms (food supply and competition).Limiting FactorEcological SuccessionCarrying capacityEcological Niche4. A freshwater lake has a muddy bottom, which is home to different types of algae and other organisms. Many species of fish feed on the algae. Which of the following is an abiotic factor in this ecosystem?None of the aboveThe amount of food available to the fishThe number of species of fishThe temperature of the water5. Nonliving parts of the environment such as soil, water, sunlight.ScavengerAbioticBioticDecomposers6. A deer prancing about is an example of a(n)EcosystemPopulationOrganismCommunity7. All the trees within a forest would be an example of PopulationCommunityEcosystemOrganism8. Struggle between organism for the same resources.

PopulationEcological NicheHabitatBiosphere10. The graph below shows the changes in the size of the populations of two different species of paramecia placed in one beaker.What can be concluded from this graph?Paramecium A is the predator, paramecium B is the prey.Paramecium B reaches a steady state of growth.The introduction of paramecium B is followed by a decline in the population of paramecium A.Paramecium B is the predator, paramecium A is the prey.11. A species of plant or animal that is facing imminent extinction or extirpation is said to beEndangeredThreatenedExtirpatedExtinct12. Space where an organism lives and the role an organism plays within its ecosystem is referred to as a:SamplingCommunityPopulationNiche13. Ecology is the study of the: Abiotic parts of the environment, such as climate, air, and soil.Biotic parts of the environment, such as animals and plants. .Interactions between organisms as well as the interactions between organisms and their environmentInteractions between organisms.14. A diagram that shows how energy moves through the ecosystem (producer, consumers, decomposer) Food WebEcological SuccessionEnergy PyramidFood Chain15. Which of the following is NOT an abiotic factor?Light intensity.HumidityDecomposerWind16. Which of the following sequences goes from the simplest level to the most complex?Population, community, ecosystemCommunity, ecosystem, populationCommunity, population, ecosystemPopulation, ecosystem, community17. A food web is more realistic than a food chain for showing the feeding relationships in ecosystems because:Producers are usually eaten by many different consumers and most consumers are eaten by more than one predator.A food web explains why there are more producers than consumers.It compares the number of consumers to the number of micro-organisms in an ecosystem.Food chains use only a small sampling of organisms.18.
