Principles of Ecology: Part 2 FANR/MARS 1100 Relevant Scientific Principles: Matter  Matter = something that occupies space and can be perceived o Organic = living, composed of C, H, O o Inorganic = non­living, mineral­based  Law of Conservation of Matter: matter can be Changed from one form to another but cannot  be created or destroyed by ordinary chemical means Relevant Scientific Principles: Energy  Energy = the ability to do work o potential Energy = energy in an object at rest o kinetic Energy = energy of motion  First Law of Energy: energy cannot be created or destroyed but can be converted from one  form to another  Second Law of Energy: conversions result in energy lost as heat Relevant Scientific Principles: Entropy  Entropy = the tendency for all matter and energy in the universe to evolve toward a state of  inert uniformity (or disorder) Flow of Energy Through Ecosystems  Solar Energy: virtually all energy in the biosphere comes from the sun  Photosynthesis major life­sustaining process o Solar energy + 6CO  + 6H O > C H O  + 6O 2 2 6 12 6 2  Respiration: breakdown of sugars by plants and animals to produce energy o C H76 12 66  > 62O  + 6H 2 + en2rgy  Primary production organic matter produced by plants  1. Gross Primary Production (GPP): total biomass produced by plants 2. Net Primary Production (NPP): biomass that remains after plants use a share  Producers (autotrophs): green plants; convert chemical energy  Comsumers (heterotrophs): organisms; consume stored energy Ecosystem Structure: Food Weds and Food Chains  There are more primary producers than top comsumers  Primary producers  Herbivores  carnivores Ecosystem Structure: Detrital Food Chains  Detritus feeder: organisms that obtain their energy and nutrients form waste material and  dead bodies  Detritus food web: any food web that has its base in the dead remains of plants and animals Ecosystem Structure: Trophic Levels  Trophic level definition: a group of organisms that occupy the same position in a food  chain/web
