Deep in the marsh, there are plenty of alligators and crocodiles that live in the brackish waters. These reptiles eat various small animals that will dare tread their territory. Some of these small animals use various plantlife to evade these reptiles, thus demonstrating the different interactions and relationships between the organisms in the ecosystem.
An ecosystem is a collection of organisms that interact with one another in a specific environment, temperature, and geographical layout. Ecology, a subsection of Biology, is the study of the interactions and relationships of organisms in their environment. Our planet is composed of multiple ecosystems that will encompass one another creating a large and diverse ecosystem.
There are plenty of examples of ecosystems you can find around the world, like a peatland, an estuarine, or a tundra biome. These are considered ecosystems because they have a community of organisms that interact with one another. If you are still confused about how an ecosystem works, there are plenty of examples and samples of ecosystems in the list above.
Begin by selecting a specific area on Earth and noting it down on a piece of paper, notepad, or digital note. After selecting an area, you will have to research all the geographical details and characteristics of the ecosystem. This research will include the location in relation to the Earth, the day and night temperature of the location, and the multiple geographical layouts of the chosen area. Ensure that you will note down all the details of the ecosystem on the note you keep.
After you have noted down all the details, you will need to list down all the flora in the ecosystem. The flora will include the various low plants, fungi, and trees that will compose the ecosystem. You must add all this information to your collated notes.
When you have finished adding the flora to your collated notes, you must write down all the animals that live in the ecosystem. This will include the terrestrial, avian, and aquatic animals in the ecosystem. You will also need to add the various insects that call the ecosystem home into your notes.
After listing all the details that make up the ecosystem, you will now need to create various food chains and food webs that will make up your ecosystem. If there are any missing details of the ecosystem you can redo steps one to three of this how-to.
The ecosystem is the overall community of living organisms in a situated location with its climate, geographical location, and body of water. These organisms will have different and complex relationships and interactions with one another. The interactions and relationships will manifest as a food web, which illustrates the ecosystem’s energy cycle. The Food web will contain multiple food chains that will span the different physical environments in the ecosystem.
The planet Earth is composed of multiple ecosystems that interact and intermingle with one another. It is essential to learn about the ecosystem as these systems encompass the land and sea mass of the whole planet. If an ecosystem is damaged, everything else around the ecosystem will suffer.
If something destructive will occur in an ecosystem, then the ecosystem may collapse. For example, if more coral reefs are destroyed and damaged by both humans and sea urchins then the fish population will diminish inside the ecosystem. Then if the fish population will die out, a lot of people, animals, and the environment will suffer.
Ecosystems are very important organic structures that will stabilize our planet. These ecosystems ensure the survival and longevity of our planet, should one be destabilized plenty of bad things will happen. In conclusion, we will need to take care and be conscientious of the environment around us.
