  • Ecosystem Conclusion

     Environmental Impacts on Ecosystems Introduction An ecosystem is a community of living organisms (plants, animals and microbes) in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (things like air, water and mineral soil), interacting as a system. These biotic and abiotic components are regarded as linked together through nutrient cycles and energy flows. Ecosystems are controlled both by external and internal factors. Once outside factors affect these...

     Introduction Ecosystem is similar to a community. It consists of species, living organisms and the abiotic factors, their habitat. Living organisms includes animals, plants, insects, micro-organisms. For their habitat, they are the non-living nature which are soil, sunlight, water, precipitation. There are two types of ecosystem. Terrestrial ecosystem which is on the land and aquatic ecosystem which is under the water. Over-breeding is the increase of offspring of a species to a excessive number...

    WHAT IS ECOSYSTEM An ecosystem consists of the biological community that occurs in some locale, and the physical and chemical factors that make up its non-living or abiotic environment. There are many examples of ecosystems -- a pond, a forest, an estuary, grassland.  The study of ecosystems mainly consists of the study of certain processes that link the living, or biotic, components to the non-living, or abiotic, components. Energy transformations and ecosystem components are the two main topics...
