Study these flashcards until you can go through the entire deck without making a mistake. Look at each flashcard, think the answer to yourself in your head, then click the flashcard to turn it over and see what the answer is. If you knew it, click the arrow button. You will move on to the next flashcard and won't see the one you knew again. If you didn't know it, click the flashcard again so you can see the question. Read the question and say the answer to yourself. Spend about 10 seconds trying to memorize it, then click the "try again later" button. It will shuffle the card back into the deck so it will come up again later. Keep studying the flashcards until you work your way through the entire deck. Then take a break, come back later, and study the deck again. Each time you do this, you should be able to make it through the deck quicker because you will know more and more of the flashcards. Do this until you can open up the deck and work your way through it without making a mistake. In order to get credit for this assignment, you need to accumulate at least 1 minute per flashcard in the deck AND pass the flashcard quiz. For instance, if there are 30 flashcards in the deck, you will need to study a MINIMUM of 30 minutes. It doesn't have to be all at once. will keep track of your study time and report it to your teacher. You can check how much time quia is giving you credit for by going to your homepage. It stops the timer if you are not actively studying, so if you just open them up and watch a TV show for half an hour, quia will not give you credit for studying for 30 minutes. You will need to know the flashcards well enough to pass the flashcard quiz anyways, so just keep studying until you know them all. Good luck!

An organism's ______ is where it lives and includes both biotic and abiotic factors.habitat
An organism's ____ is kind of like it's job, and includes the way in which an organism eats, finds shelter, and reproduces as well as the physical conditions required by the organism to survive.niche, Audio
Two different species ______ share the same niche in the same habitat.can't
Any necessity for life, such as water, nutrients, light, food, and space, are referred to as a _____.resource
______ occurs when organisms of the same or different species attempt to use an ecological resource in the same place at the same time.Competition
The type of interaction where one animal captures and eats another animal is known as _____.predation
The type of relationship in which two different species of organisms live closely together is called ____.symbiosis, Audio
Name the three types of symbiotic relationships., Audio mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism
The type of symbiotic relationship in which both species benefit is called ____., Audio mutualism, Audio
The type of symbiotic relationship in which one species benefits while the other species is neither helped nor harmed is called ___., Audio commensalism, Audio
The type of symbiotic relationship in which one species benefits at the expense of the other is called ____., Audio parasitism, Audio
Fleas, ticks, lice and tapeworms are examples of ____.parasites, Audio
The organism that a parasite lives on or in is called the
The statement that "No two species can occupy the exact same niche in the same area at the same time" is called the _________ principlecompetitive exclusion principle
The type of interaction between herbivores and plants is called _____.herbivory
Smaller habitats within a larger habitat that often have different biotic and abiotic factors from the habitat around them, including their own microclimate are called _____ or _______.microhabitats, microenvironment
The type of habitat that insects living under the bark of a dead tree could best be referred to as a ____-habitat.micro
The type of soil, the average temperature, and the amount of sunlight that are characteristic of a habitat would be known as ____ factors that affect the environment.abiotic
The type of organisms found in a certain habitat would be known as ____ factors that affect the environment.biotic
Species that can survive in a wide range of conditions would be said to have a wide range _______.tolerance
Species can serve as "indicator species" for healthy environments if they have low ______ for pollution or environmental degradation.tolerance (for instance, trout are indicator species for clean water because they can't survive well in polluted water. If you find them in a stream, it's probably pretty clean water. Carp and catfish on the other hand have high tolerance for water pollution, so they wouldn't be considered to be "indicator species.")
A graph like the one shown is typical of a _______ relationship., predator-prey,
A species that may not be large in number, but has a large effect on an ecosystem would be called a(n) _______ species.keystone
______ of a keystone species would cause big changes in an ecosystem.Removal (for instance, the removal wolves from many areas in the U.S. led to big changes with more herbivores surviving. That in turn changed the types of plant life that could found in the area)
