Types of Consumers (Herbivores, Carnivores, Omnivores, Scavenger) Special Decomposers (scavengers, detritivores, and decomposers) Prey, Predator Food chain versus a Food web Energy pyramid (primary consumer, secondary consumer, tertiary consumer) Food (proteins, vitamins, minerals, sugar, water) Photosynthesis (chemical reaction) Nutrient cycle (carbon cycle, nitrogen cycle) Greenhouse gases, are they good are bad, or both? and why? Why do we need variables? Why can you only change on thing? What is your Question and what do you expect to see? Why? This will be a long answer questions based on your own mini research project.

Ecology Concepts and Key Terms

Reviewing for a Test Everyone is different. Try different strategies and figure out what works best for you. Space out your studying review. Organize all your material (notes, textbook, quizzes, handouts). Find a comfortable space. Review and organize your notes. Prepare a study sheet (mind map/list/images etc.) with important concepts and ideas. Start by studying the most important information. Answer the practice questions in the textbook. Test yourself or have someone test you on the material to find out your strengths and weaknesses. Continue to review and practice questions.

Writing a Test Come prepared. Keep a positive attitude. Take deep breaths, be excited to share what you know, and to learn from the experience. Do a quick survey of the entire test (sometimes their helpful hints hidden in different questions). Do the easiest questions first. Read each question in detail. Ask, if you dont understand. If you dont know the answer, skip it and come back to it later.
