3AB - Human Biology

Light is the initial energy source for almost all communities. In nature three type of food chain are present- 1.

Chapter 54 - Ecosystems

Secondary consumers are the species that eat the primary consumers and tertiary consumers in turn eat the secondary consumers.

This phenomenon is called Biogeochemical cycle. These carbonic matter produce CO2 through the oxidation or respiration which dissolve in air or water and again utilized by the plants.

Respiration is not the only way carbon makes it into the air atmosphere. Symbiotic biological fixation of nitrogen in soil also represents an input. When overshoot carrying capacity a limiting factor may come into effect I. Energy flows from producers to primary consumers, to secondary consumers, to tertiary consumers However the energy is then lost from the ecosystem as the remaining energy in the trophic levels and the energy in the saprotrophs and detritivores is lost through cell respiration in the form of heat.

Producers capture only a small fraction of solar energy percent of total solar radiationand the bulk of unutilised energy is dissipated mostly as heat. Because birds herbivores depend on the tree producer and parasites consumer like bugs, lices depend on birds, therefore with increase in the number of trophic levels, the number of the organisms increase sequentially.

The number of organism at any trophic level depends upon the availability of organisms which are used as food on lower level so availability of food is main factor.

Chapter 55 - Ecosystems

Others are used by the plant for energy. The number of members of any particular species in favourable conditions is called their biotic potential.

It means they have more than one option or alternative for getting food. Results in Unchecked growth. Dead plant remains such as leaves, bark, flower and dead remains of animals, including fecal matter, constitute detritus, which is the raw material for decomposition. The main source of carbon is atmosphere and in hydrosphere it is rocks of carbonates.

When introduced they can grow at an exponential rate due to the fact that they are not vulnerable to local predators or competitors.

Chains show who eats whom in an ecosystem. Webs are made up of several food chains. Always begin with producers absorbing sunlight. Producers store energy in the chemical bonds of the food they make.
