Ecosystem Worksheets

What are Ecosystems?

When lifeforms interact with concurrence with non-living components. It is the functional and structural unit of ecology there is an interaction between living organism is necessary under the surrounding environment. This aspect produces a unique chain or connection between environment and organisms. There are different kinds of ecosystem that are as follows: Ecosystem can be little like oasis living in the desert or it can be large as ocean, spanning of hundreds of miles. There are two major kinds of this unique system of interaction that are: Terrestrial - It refers to the land-based ecosystems. In this case, there is a distribution in various geological zones that are as follows; Desert, Tundra, Grassland, Forest. Aquatic -This interaction occurs in the water habitat. It has multiple parts that are as follows; Marine, Freshwater, and Brackish (mix of marine and fresh) There is a strong organization of biotic and abiotic elements that is the foundation of ecosystem structure. It involves the energy distribution in the environment. There is an interaction of climate conditions involve in maintaining the connection between prevailing and particular environment. Also, the structure of biotic and abiotic elements that are living and non-living respectfully.

Nutritional Relationships

Place words and phrases in appropriate section of the table below.

About a Biome

You will list all the conditions of specific biomes and all abiotic and biotic factors.

Draw an Ecosystem

Draw an ecosystem that includes at least 5 groups of animal species, 3 groups of plant species. Circle a population. Write names of the carnivores, herbivores, omnivores, and producers below the drawing.

My Biome

Name five types of plant populations that live in your biome. Describe the type of weather you experience in the winter.

Food Chains

A food chain is a display of how energy passes from one organism to another. A food chain usually starts with a primary natural energy source such as the Sun. The next link in the chain is an organism that uses that natural energy source to make its own food. These organisms are called producers. Producers are eaten by herbivores such as rabbits. Herbivores are eaten by carnivores such as mountain lions. The chain ends with decomposers such as bacteria. Decomposers return the remains of producers, herbivores, and carnivores back to the soil. Place an arrow to show the flow of energy in the following food chains.

Food Webs

Energy Arrows are used in food webs to show the flow of energy from the organism that is consumed to the consumer that is eating it. Draw energy arrows to show the flow of energy in this environment.

Levels of Organization

Place the correct label next to each picture. Place the correct letter next to each vocabulary clue.
