4.1 understand the terms: population, community, habitat and ecosystem

Ecosystem = "Community" of animals, plants and microorganisms, together with the habitats where they live.
Can be: covering a small area (eg pond) or covering a large area (eg: a tropical rain-forest).
-The world is divided up into ten major ecosystems. These large-scale ecosystems are called biomes.
Habitat =  The place being occupied by an organism, population, or community. A habitat ontains all the "Antibiotic" factors - such as, daylight/dark + temp + rainful + humidity + slope.

Population: pop of different species.

"Species" are also called "organisms." Which reproduce fertile offspring. The interaction most common that happens between is "feeding."

Examples of ecosystems.
