Examples of competition between organisms in a forest ecosystem?
little plants compeating for the sun with the big trees,
animals compeating for food
A niche is an organisms particular role or how it makes it living in it's ecosystem. (examples: how it reproduces, what it eats, how it interacts with other organisms, etc.) a horses niche is mainly competition between other wild animals like it (like sheep, mountain goats, pronghorns,) its mainly water since they usually live it pretty dry areas. it's predator's are mainly mountain loins, bobcats and coyotes usually go for foals, (baby horses)
Interspecific : Interspecific competition, in ecology, is a form of competition in which individuals of different species vie for the same resource in an ecosystem (e.g. food or living space). The other form of competition is intraspecific competition, which involves organisms of the same species. Intraspecific : Intraspecific competition is a particular form of competition in which members of the same species vie for the same resource in an ecosystem (e.g. food, light, nutrients, space)…
Give some examples of the differences between the species of birds and how these differences affect the survival and competition between the birds?
Why does competition between individuals of the same species tend to be greater than competition between individuals of different species?
In a ecosystem, food chain plays a major role. The predators fuction in the ecosystem as: 1) They help in transferin energy from organisms. eg. The plant receives 10,000 J of energy from the sun. The herbivorous or primary consumers consume it with a 10 % loss i.e, they receive only 100 J of energy. 2) They help in maintaing the balance of the ecosystem. If the predators are absent, the species they consume will…
I'm assuming you mean ecological relationship. An ecological relationship is the relationship between organisms in an ecosystem. There are six ecological relationships in which two are oppositional and four are symbiotic. The oppositional relationships are predation and competition. The symbiotic relationships are mutualism, commensalism, amensalism, and parasitism.
Mutualism: a relationship where the it's beneficial to both organisms involved Parasitism: habitually relying on, living as a parasite Commensalism: an association between two organisms in which one benefits and the other derives neither benefit nor harm Predation: the preying of one animal on others Competition: interaction between organisms, populations, or species, in which birth, growth and death depend on gaining a share of a limited environmental resource
