  • 1. UNIT 5 ECOSYSTEM IS MADE UP OF LIVING THINGS (FLORA, FAUNA AND OTHER ORGANISMS) AND NON-LIVING THINGS (PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT: SOIL, WATER, SUNLIGHT, CLIMATE, TEMPERATURA…) WHICH WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE A BALANCED SYSTEM Habitat: place where living things grow and live.
  • 2. GROUP OF ANIMALS WHICH BELONG TO THE SAME SPECIES Different populations interact with each other Living and non-living things
  • 3. TERRESTRIAL ECOSYSTEM TUNDRA -COLDEST AND DRY ECOSYSTEM -NO TREES -FLORA: LICHEN, MOSSES AND GRASSES -FAUNA: CARIBOU, REINDEER, POLAR BEARS, WOLVES…
