2 Temperate Grassland Temperate Deciduous Forest distribution: mid-latitudes, mid-continents precipitation: seasonal, dry season/wet season temperature: cold winters/hot summers characteristics: prairie grasses, fire-adapted, drought tolerant plants; many herbivores; deep, fertile soil distribution: mid-latitude, northern hemisphere precipitation: adequate, summer rains, winter snow temperature: moderate warm summer/cool winter characteristics: many mammals, insects, birds, etc.; deciduous trees; fertile soils Coniferous Forest (Taiga) Chaparral distribution: high-latitude, northern hemisphere precipitation: adequate to dry temperature: cool year round characteristics: conifers; diverse mammals, birds, insects, etc. distribution: coastal mid-latitude precipitation: seasonal, dry summer/rainy winter temperature: hot summer/cool winter characteristics: scrubby vegetation, drought-adapted, fireadapted, herbivores, amphibians, birds, insects Arctic Tundra Alpine Tundra distribution: arctic, high-latitude, northern hemisphere precipitation: dry temperature: cold year round characteristics: permafrost, lichens & mosses, migrating animals & resident herbivores distribution: high elevation at all latitudes precipitation: dry temperature: cold year round characteristics: permafrost, lichens, mosses, grasses; migrating animals & resident herbivores 2

3 What have we done! Impact of ecology as a science Ecology provides a scientific context for evaluating environmental issues Rachel Carson, in 1962, in her book, Silent Spring, warned that use of pesticides such as DDT was causing population declines in many non-target organisms Barry Commoner s Laws of Ecology Everything is connected to everything else Everything must go somewhere there is no such place as away Nature knows best There is no such thing as a free lunch Laws of Unintended Consequences Acid Precipitation power plants industry transportation nitrogen oxides sulfur dioxide BioMagnification Energy pyramid toxins concentrate as they move up the food chain Acid rain 3
