A Coggle Diagram about Ecology (ECOLOGY - the study of interactions among organisms with each other and with environment, Autotrophs (producers) - capture energy from environment and convert it into "food"
Heterotrophs (consumers) - must eat things
Detritivores / Decomposers
SUNLIGHT is the main source of energy
Photosynthesis - uses light energy to make "food"
Chemosynthesis - makes food from chemicals (some bacteria synthesize food in this way)
, (biology + geology + chemical)
matter is not used up, it is transformed, the same molecules are passed around (see images in your book)
transpiration (from plants)
evaporation (from bodies of water)
precipitation (from clouds) and Biome - large area that has a particular climate, and particular species of plants and animals that live there (tundra)
Biosphere - the part of the earth that supports life
), DNA (Pneumococcus- Smooth ER and Rough ER), DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid) is composed of two Polynucleotide Strands (the polymers of nucleotides), which form what looks like a ladder. The Nitrogenous Bases in DNA store the instructions for making polypeptide chains, essentially coding for every feature of the entire organism., blueprint of life (has the instructions for making an organism)
established by James Watson and Francis Crick
codes for your genes
shape of a double helix
made of repeating subunits called nucleotides and DNA is the genetic material, and genes are made of DNA. DNA therefore has two essential functions: replication and expression.
Replication means that the DNA, with all its genes, must be copied every time a cell divides.
Expression means that the genes on DNA must control characteristics. A gene is a section of DNA that codes for a particular protein. Characteristics are controlled by genes through the proteins they code for
