different levels according to complexity.

Ecological Levels of Organization
Ecological Levels of Organization
• Individual- one
organism (living)
• Species- a group
of similar
organisms that
can breed and
produce fertile
offspring.
• Eg. moose
Ecological Levels of Organization
• Populationgroups of
individuals
that belong
to the same
species and
live in the
same area.
• Eg. many
moose
Ecological Levels of Organization
• Communitygroups of
different
populations
(more than one
population or
different groups
of species)
Eg. many groups of
moose beavers,
trees, grass (all
living)
Ecological Levels of Organization
• Ecosystemall organisms
in a particular
area along
with the
nonliving.
(living and
nonliving)
Eg. many groups
of moose
beavers,
trees, grass,
rocks, water,
mountains
Ecological Levels of Organization
• Biome- group of
ecosystems that
have the same
climate and
similar dominant
communities
•

Ecological Levels of Organization
• Biosphereall of the
planet where
life exists,
includes
