Ecology & Biodiversity Print Page


  • Ecology: Topic Page
    Ecology is the study of the relationships of organisms to their physical environment and to one another.
  • Competition: Topic Page
    In ecology, the interaction between two or more organisms, or groups of organisms, that use a common resource in short supply.
  • Ecosystem: Topic Page

    In ecology, a unit consisting of living organisms and the environment that they live in.
  • Endangered Species: Topic Page

    Any plant or animal species whose ability to survive and reproduce has been jeopardized by human activities.
  • Extinction: Topic Page
    In biology, the complete disappearance of a species from the planet. Extinctions occur when a species becomes unfit for survival in its natural habitat usually to be replaced by another, better-suited species. MORE
  • Habitat: Topic Page
    In ecology, the localized environment in which an organism lives, and which provides for all (or almost all) of its needs.
  • Biological Invasions: Topic Page
    The spread of an invasive species into native plant communities and causing environmental harm by developing self-sustaining populations and disrupting the structure and functioning of the system.
  • Adaptation (Biology): Topic Page
    The ability to adapt is a fundamental property of life and constitutes a basic difference between living and nonliving matter.
  • Food Chain: Topic Page
    In ecology, a sequence showing the feeding relationships between organisms in a habitat or ecosystem.

Biodiversity & Conservation

  • Biodiversity: Topic Page
    Measure of the variety of the Earth's animal, plant, and microbial species, of genetic differences within species, and of the ecosystems that support those species.
  • Conservation: Topic Page
    In the life sciences, action taken to protect and preserve the natural world, usually from pollution, overexploitation, and other harmful features of human activity.
  • Endangered Species: Topic Page

    Any plant or animal species whose ability to survive and reproduce has been jeopardized by human activities.
  • Environmentalism: Topic Page
    Movement to protect the quality and continuity of life through conservation of natural resources, prevention of pollution, and control of land use.
  • Pollution: Topic Page

    Contamination of the environment as a result of human activities. The term pollution refers primarily to the fouling of air, water, and land by wastes (see air pollution; water pollution; solid waste).
  • Smog: Topic Page

    [smoke+fog], dense, visible air pollution. Smog is commonly of two types.
  • Wildlife Refuge: Topic Page
    An area of land or of land and water set aside and maintained, usually by government or private organization, for the preservation and protection of one or more species of wildlife.
