1. Hello my carlos am from class 5-888


These are my five factg
  1. Temperate coniferous forest is a terrestrial biome found in temperate regions of the world with warm summers and cool winters and adequate rainfall to sustain a forest.
  2. Some of the tallest and oldest trees in the world are in coniferous forests in the worlod
  3. from freshwater and marine ecoregions. In this context, terrestrial is used to mean "of land" (soil and rock), rather than the more general sense "of Earth" (which includes land and oceans).
    WWF (World Wildlife Fund) ecologists currently divide the land surface of the Earth into 8 major ecozones containing 867 smaller terrestrial ecoregions (see list). The WWF effort is a synthesis of many previous efforts to define and classify ecoregions. Many consider this classification to be quite decisive, and some propose these as stable borders for bioregional democracy initiatives.[8]
    The eight terrestrial ecozones follow the major floral and faunal boundaries, identified by botanists and zoologists, that separate the world's major plant and animal communities. Ecozone boundaries generally follow continental boundaries, or major barriers to plant and animal distribution, like the Himalayas and the Sahara. The boundaries of ecoregions are often not as decisive or well recognized, and are subject to greater disagreement.

competition within and between species. Ecosystems are dynamically interacting systems of organisms, the communities they make up, and the non-living components of their environment. Ecosystem processes, such as primary production, pedogenesis, nutrient cycling, and niche construction, regulate the flux of energy and matter through an environment. These processes are sustained by organisms with specific life history traits. Biodiversity means the varieties of species, genes, and ecosystems, enhances certain ecosystem services.
Ecology is not synonymous with environmentalism, natural history, or environmental science. It overlaps with the closely related sciences of evolutionary biology, genetics, and ethology. An important focus for ecologists is to improve the understanding of how biodiversity affects ecological function. Ecologists seek to explain:

made up of living organisms and nonliving components such as air, water and mineral soil.[2] Ecosystems may be studied either as contingent collections of plants and animals, or as structured systems and communities that are governed by general rules.[3] The biotic and abiotic components interact through nutrient cycles and energy flows.[4] Ecosystems include a network of interactions among organisms, and between organisms and their environment.[5] Ecosystems can be of any size but one ecosystem has a specific, limited space.[6] Some scientists view the entire planet as one ecosystem.[7]

  1. ecosysten


system, or a group of interconnected elements, formed by theinteraction of a community of organisms with their environment.

any system or network of interconnecting and interacting parts, as ina business: The success of Apple’s ecosystem depends onhardware/software integration.Manufacturers, retailers, and customers are all part of the automotiveindustry’s ecosystem.








2population

the total number of persons inhabiting a country, city, or any districtor area.

the body of inhabitants of a place:The population of the city opposes the addition of fluorides to thedrinking water.

the number or body of inhabitants in a place belonging to a specificsocial, cultural, socioeconomic, ethnic, or racial subgroup:the native population; the working-class population.




3.community




social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality,share government, and often have a common cultural and historicalheritage.

locality inhabited by such a group.

social, religious, occupational, or other group sharing commoncharacteristics or interests and perceived or perceiving itself asdistinct in some respect from the large society within which it exists(usually preceded by the):the business community; the community of scholars..

group of associated nations sharing common interests or a commonheritage:the community of Western Europe.

Ecclesiastical. a group of men or women leading a common lifeaccording to a rule.




4.food chain



Ecology. a series of organisms interrelated in their feeding habits, thesmallest being fed upon by a larger one, which in turn feeds a stilllarger one, etc.
2.
the chain from a food source to the ultimate consumer.
3.
a hierarchy ranked by status, importance, influence, etc.:people who are high up on the political and media food chain.

5.food web

a series of organisms related by predator-prey and consumer-resource interactions; the entirety of interrelated food chains in anecological community.

Energy pyramid
An energy pyramid is a graphical model of energy flow in a community. The different levels represent different groups of organisms that might compose a food chain. From the bottom-up, they are as follows:


8.habitat

the natural home or environment of an animal, plant, or other organism.
"wild chimps in their natural habitat"


:


9.biome

major ecological community of organisms adapted to a particular climatic or environmental condition on a large geographic area in which they occur.

Supplement

Biomes may be classified into:




10.niche


In ecology, a niche may pertain to a variety of meanings. It is probably due to the definition of niche that has changed overtime. Joseph Grinnell in 1917 coined the term niche, which he used as largely equivalent to a species habitat. In 1927, Charles Sutherland Elton regarded niche to be equivalent to the position of a species in a trophic web. In 1958, George Evelyn Hutchinson used the term niche to describe the multi-dimensional space of resources available to and used by a species. Despite the varying definitions of niche, it is generally considered to pertain to how an organism or a population responds to as well as alters competition and the distribution of resources. It particularly describes the relational position of an organism or a population in a particular ecosystem.

Coniferous forest, vegetation composed primarily of cone-bearing needle-leaved or scale-leaved evergreen trees, found in areas that have long winters and moderate to high annual precipitation. The northern Eurasian coniferous forest is called the taiga, or the boreal forest.

here's a quick look at some of the critters you'll find in taiga region! you might know them

as rein deer,but either way,these creatures are common dwellers of the taiga.caribou UL pictured can run at speeds reaching86 kilometers
