Environmental change is a direct result of the organisms within the ________ community. The patchwork of different types of land cover is called a(n) ________ . Strips of habitat that connect habitat patches are referred to as ________. Within a mosaic, a(n). ________ is a relatively homogeneous community type, differing from its surroundings in both structure and species composition. The ________ effect refers to the rich diversity of life that occurs along the border between adjacent habitat patches, represented by species from both adjacent patches and species adapted to edge habitats. A(n) ________ species lives within the borders of a habitat patch, avoiding edges where habitat change is abrupt. The degree to which the landscape facilitates or impedes the movement of organisms among patches is called ________. A. interior B. pioneer C. sere D. Intermediate disturbance E. patch F. edge G. autogenic H. primary I. Island biogeography J. corridors
K. mosaic L. connectivity M. community 7. Assuming primary succession, list the following plant groups in order from early-successional to late-successional.
8. Using specific examples for each, explain the differences between primary and secondary succession.
9. Explain the difference between the organismal concept of communities and the individualistic continuum concept. Which do you think more accurately describes real communities, and why?
