1.An ecosystem includes all of the living things in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments. (weather, earth, sun, soil,climate, atmosphere.)
2.It is the role that each organism plays in it’s ecosystem.
- You can find all sorts of living things, from microorganisms, to insects and plants. These may depend on non living things like water, sunlight, turbulence in the puddle, temperature, atmospheric pressure and even nutrients in the water for life.
- Biotic and abiotic factors can influence an ecosystem some examples are humans, weather, temperature, soil quality etc.
- Biotic: Living factors such as plants, animals, fungi, protist and bacteria are all biotic or living factors. Biotic factors depend on abiotic factors to survive. The kind of biotic factors in a given area is often a result of abiotic factors in that area.
- Physical or non living factors that shape an ecosystem such as rocks, climate and soil.
- Floods, fire, earth quakes, volcanic eruptions and storms (like tornadoes)
- By disrupting the ecosystem through deforestation and other actions like pollution.
- Biome a very large ecosystem or collection of ecosystems with similar biotic and abiotic factors such as an entire rain forest.
