Levels of Ecological Organization:


Biological communities can be learned at little levels or everywhere levels. The levels of association are portrayed beneath from the littlest to the biggest:


*A species is a group of individuals that are genetically related and can breed to produce fertile young. Individuals are not members of the same species if their members cannot produce offspring that can also have children. The second word in the two word name given to every organism is the species name. For example, in Homo sapiens, sapiens is the species name.


*A population is a group of organisms belonging to the same species that live in the same area and interact with one another.


*A community is all of the populations of different species that live in the same area and interact with one another. A people group is made out of the majority of the biotic components of a range.

*An ecosystem includes the living organisms (all the populations) in an area and the non-living aspects of the environment. An ecosystem is made of the biotic and abiotic factors in an area.



Levels of organization in ecology include the population, community, ecosystem, and biosphere.

An ecosystem is all the living things in an area interacting with all of the abiotic parts of the environment.
