1: A large naturally occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat. | Biome | Example: A plant may develop waxy leaves to trap the small amount of moisture that is available.
2: Abiotic Factor | Anything that is part of an organisms environment and is non-living. | Examples: Wind, water and sun light.
4: Community | Group of interacting populations. | Example: Lions and tigers.
6: Mutalism | A symbiotic relationship where both species benefit. | Example: Ant and acacia trees.
8: Food Chain | A sequence of who eats what in biological order.
9: Example: Deer living in an area where there isn't much food because that amount of animals there. | Carrying Capacity | The number of individuals an environment can support.
10: Example: Hawk and snake. | Predation | The preying on one animal on others.

17: Carbon Cycle | The exchange of carbon between living organisms and the nonliving environment.
18: Biotic Factor | Biotic components are the living things that shape an ecosystem. They are, any living component that affects another organism. Insect, bacteria
19: Commensalism | An association between two organisms in which one benefits and the other derives neither benefit nor harm. A bird living in a tree
20: Flowering plant with two cotyledons; the stem grows by deposit on its outside. Sunflower family, pea family, rose family | DICOT
21: Cladogram | A branching diagram showing the cladistic relationship between a number of species.
22: A plant that has seeds unprotected by an ovary or fruit. Conifers, cycads, ginkgo. | Gymnosperm
23: Bacteria | A member of a large group of unicellular microorganisms that have cell walls but lack organelles and an organized nucleus, including some that can cause disease. Ecoli
24: A limiting factor or limiting resource is a factor that controls a process, such as organism growth or species population, size, or distribution. Natural disasters, disease, competition | Limiting Factor
25: Pollen | A fine powdery substance, typically yellow, consisting of microscopic grains discharged from the male part of a flower or from a male cone. Honeybee flower
26: Breaks down and absorbs dead organisms and wastes Worms, slug | Decomposer
27: An organism deriving its nutritional requirements from complex organic substances. Lions, tigers, bears | HETERTROPHS
28: Interaction between two different organisms living in close physical association, typically to the advantage of both. Oxpecker and rhinoceros | Symbiosis
29: An animal that feeds on plants; Zebras | Herbivore
30: Classification | The arrangement of organisms into orderly groups based on their similarities Kingdoms
31: Xylem | The vascular tissue in plants that conducts water and dissolved nutrients upward from the root and also helps to form the woody element. roots soaking up water from the ground.
32: An individual animal, plant, or single-celled life form animals | Organism
33: Fungi | Any of a group of unicellular, multicellular, or syncytial spore-producing organisms feeding on organic matter, including molds, yeast,... Penicillium, Ustilago cynodontis
34: A mammal of an order (Marsupialia) whose members are born incompletely developed and are typically carried and suckled in a pouch on the mothers belly kangaroo | Marsupial
35: A small flowerless green plant that lacks true roots, growing in low carpets or rounded cushions in damp habitats and reproducing by means of spores released from stalked capsules | Moss
36: Parts of a flower | Anther, articulation, calyx, corolla, filament, floral axis, microsporangium, nectary, ovary, ovule, pedicel, perianth, petal
37: Water Cycle The cycle of processes by which water circulates between the earth's oceans, atmosphere, and land, involving precipitation as rain and snow, drainage in streams and rivers, and return to the atmosphere by evaporation and transpiration
38: HH | HABITAT | The natural home or environment of an animal, plant, or other organism. Fish and the ocean
39: Ecosystem | A biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment. Pond, forest
40: Parasitism | the relation between two different kinds of organisms in which one receives benefits from the other by causing damage to it Mistletoe and trees
41: Autotrophs An organism that is able to form nutritional organic substances from simple inorganic substances such as carbon dioxide. Green plants, algae
42: Competition A symbiotic relationship between or among living things for resources, such as food, space, shelter, mate, ecological status, etc. carnivores
43: Niche | The role a species plays in its habitat Honey bee: Pollinate flowering plants
44: SPECIES | A group of living organisms consisting of similar individuals capable of exchanging genes or interbreeding. Dogs
45: Plantae | the taxonomic kingdom comprising all living or extinct plants. Red oak, sunflower, sweet pea
