We discussed the impact of pollution in both Lake Washington (Seattle) and Lake Erie (Great Lakes). Independent of their very different size, why have they responded so differently to pollution? Is there hope for Lake Erie? Why or why not?11/2/2014

Community Ecology

 

is the study of biological communities.

 

In what ways are communities organized, structured, predictable?

 

In what ways are they not?

 

Note the difference between “habitat” and “community.”

 

The former refers to a physical

 

location

 

,

 

whereas the latter refers to constituent

 

species

 

.

 

Many communities may

 

appear

 

very similar.

 

Coniferous Forest

 

near Mt. Rainier

 

central Oregon

 

King’s Canyon National Park

 

Sandy Desert

 

Sahara Desert

 

Simpson Desert (Australia)

 

Death Valley, California

 

Thus, there may be great variation

 

from point to point in these

 

communities

 

One major way in which they differ is

 

in composition – the particular species

 

that occur at a site.

 

Example: Burrowing

 

mammals

 

N. Amer. - Gopher

 

Asia - Zokor

 

Australia – Marsupial mole

 

S. Amer. – Tuco tuco

 

Africa – Mole rat

 

Ecologically similar species in different

 

regions with different evolutionary origins.

 

N. Amer. - Gopher

 

Asia - Zokor

 

Australia – Marsupial mole

 

S. Amer. – Tuco tuco

 

Africa – Mole rat
