Q1: Define ecology.

Answer: It is the science which deals with the relation between organism and its surrounding environment.


Q2: What is a biome?

Answer: A biome is a large area with similar flora, fauna, and microorganisms. Each biome can have many ecosystems in it. For examples the
tropical rainforests, tundra in the arctic regions, and the evergreen trees in the coniferous forests, each of these contain species that are adapted to the varying conditions of water, heat, and soil in the biome.

For example, polar bears thrive in the arctic by having thick skin while cactus plants preserve water in the hot desert with help of spiny leaves with waxy layer coating.
