Back to Bio: A Crap-ton of Definitions
- Welcome to your Sophomore Year - back to memorization
Admit it, you've all misspelled it - organisms
Not to be confused with that-thing-you-lacked-in-high-school - populations
- "Totally Spherical, Dude" - interactions in ecosystems
- Energy Sources - it doesn't just come from CMP
- Energy Movement - it moves through an ecosystem like taco bell.
"C'mon, now they're just making up prefixes!" - the biogeochemical cycles
Big Fish eat Little Fish - food webs & trophic levels & energy movement
- Diversity - Not just important in your college decision
- The Dirt on Dirt - your 411 on all things earthy

Law of Tolerance
The existence, abundance and distribution of a
species is determined by whether the levels of
physical or chemical factors fall within the range
tolerated by that species.
Limiting Factor Principle
http://www.marietta.edu/~biol/102/ecycle.gif
Too much or too little of any abiotic factor can limit
or prevent growth of a population, even if all other
factors are at optimum levels.

The Land Before Time: Everything is Dead Now
- Past, Schmast - what's so great about it anyways?
- Evolution and Genetics - you'll feel like a genius after this.
"Microwaves, right? No, wait, I swear it started with 'Micro', right?" - micro/macroevolution
Last to be picked for every dodgeball team - natural selection
Cooperation, but aggressive cooperation - coevolution
- I Still Don't Know How to Pronounce Niche - nitch? nesh? quiche?
- Change Is Good - how speciation and extinction lead to biodiversity.
"You two behave, or I'll separate you!" - speciation
Just like zombies, some things are better off left dead - extinction
- The fuuuuuuuuture! - has science finally gone too far? probs.

Surf's Up! - oceans
It's a gas-tastrophe! - atmosphere gases
Candy mountain, Charlie! - topography
- There is no pun for Biome - it's like orange, nothing rhymes with it.
A horse with no name - desert biomes
"We're not in Kansas anymore, Toto!" - grassland biomes
Make like a tree and leaf - forest biomes
Take a hike - mountain biomes
