Introduction

Ecology is a complex science. Speaking in a nutshell, it examines the relationship between the animate and inanimate nature.

Two Greek word "oikos" (house) and "logos" (the science) are the name of science "ecology" means the science of the house.

Shared accommodation is sometimes like a fight for survival in space and time in natural and artificially modified human conditions. Ecology is designed to explore all the intricacies of the process of co-existence of individual residents of our great "utility" of the apartment and the impact on each other.

The main target of scientific research ecologists is nature itself. Environmentalists are watching what is happening not only in the field, leaving the expedition, but also in the stationary (laboratory) conditions. Long-term observations are accompanied by conducting laboratory experiments, followed by the extension of scientific theories to explain the phenomena occurring.

Only by studying all the issues in the complex, you can get a full picture of what is happening, to be able to...
