Summary of Ecosystems made from the lecture slides. Provides terminology, ecosystem structure and processes, cycling of elements, ecosystems as systems, flow of energy, laws of thermodynamics, impossible ecosystem, energy flow, biological production and biomass, energy efficiency, ecological stability and succession, how species facilitate succession, nutrient cycling and succession.
Energy and Enzymes
These notes cover information regarding energy/the laws of thermodynamics and its relation to Biology, as well as enzymes and their functions. I have used a combination of lecture notes, study guides, textbook materials, and online resources to make these notes.
Ecosystem | Grade 12
Ecosystem complete chapter notes are written in student friendly language with easy to draw diagrams, flowcharts, and illustrations. Our content is carefully designed to fulfill two objectives- High quality scoring notes for school exam and quick recap for competitive exam.
Following topics are covered in the notes : Basic Concepts of Ecosystem - Artificial Ecosystem, Structure of Ecosystem, Four Key Functions of Ecosystem. Productivity - Primary & Secondary Productivity, Gross & Net Primary Productivity, Factors Affecting Primary Productivity. Decomposition - Steps in Decomposition, Factors Affecting Decomposition. Energy Flow - Laws of Thermodynamics, Laws of Thermodynamics, Trophic Levels, standing crop, standing state, Grazing & Detritus Food Chain, Food Web, Ten Percent Law. Ecological Pyramids - Pyramid of Number & Biomass, Pyramid of Energy, Limitations of Ecological Pyramids. Ecological Succession – Primary & Secondary Succession, Changes during Biotic Succession, Succession on Bare Rocks (Xerarch), Succession in Aquatic Environment (Hydrarch). Biogeochemical Cycles - Nitrogen Cycle, Biological Nitrogen Fixation, Phosphorus Cycle, Carbon Cycle
Campbell AP Biology Ch. 8 Notes
Handwritten summary of Campbell\'s AP Biology Chapter 8: An Introduction to Metabolism. This chapter covers Laws of Thermodynamics, Gibbs Free Energy, enzyme activity and regulation, types of reactions, and energy coupling. I hope color-coded organizing is helpful.
Learning Objectives from Chapter 6 in Textbook (Biology: How Life Works)
This is a compilation of questions of a chapter in the textbook my professor uses in the class Biology 1 (BIOL1610). The textbook is \'Biology: How Life Works.\'
The answers of the questions are compiled from class notes and readings from the textbook.
