a species is a group of living organisms. that share common criteria three criteria allow us to to determine whether two living organisms are of the same species . the ancestors of ants came from wasps from 200 milion years ago.
criterion 1: generally they look simaler. criterion 2: they can reproduce together-in other words they can produce viable offspring. that look like them. they give birth to fertile offspring.
taxonomy is the classification of living organisms.
taxonomy is the science of classifying living organisms different categories, common charastics, ansesters (fossils).
most common classification system
the system groups living organism into five kingdoms have phyla classes are divided into orders are divided into families are divided into genera and genra are divided into species. one phylum has several classes. species are the base unit of this classification
population: includes all the the individuals of the smae species that live in a given territory
habitat: a habitat is a specific place where a species is normally is found and provides the conditions necessary for a species survival.
some characteristics of a habitat geographic location. climate, relief, fauna flora presence of water, closeness to humans and stucters etc.
ecological niche: an ecological niche describes the role that a species plays in its environment. it includes all interactions with the living and non living elements of its environment more specifically an ecological niche is described withen terms of an animals diet its sleeping patterns and its habitat.
evolution: evolution is a slow process that leads to modifications in the living organisms. these modifications allow them to adapt to changes in their environment. theory of evolution explains why there are so many different life forms on earth.
evolution is based on natural selection, witch causes them a species to adapt to its environment which causes a species to adapt to its environment over generations individuals that have characteristics which give them an advantage are more able to survive and reproduce.
I am 13 years old and in Grade 7 and have always loved bugs. One day, I will be an entomologist. My favourite insect is the ant, and I will spend hours just watching them work. Join me for some fun ant exploration!
