The Importance Of Ecosystem

Introduction: Ecosystem help demonstrate the link between people and nature and the interdependence of our lives on ecosystem-based processes that create the products we need and use daily. Water purification for drinking, water retention, soil fertility, coastal protection are examples of ecosystem from our day to day life. This project on ecosystems briefly describes its’ concept and illustrates how ecosystem considerations change daily our decisions, and why is this behaviour change is important. Acknowledgement: This interesting project has given me a chance to realise the importance of ecosystem and made me study the topic in detail and understand it better. I will like to thank my Biology teacher (Ms. Xxxxxxxxx) for giving this project…show more content…
We all know that there is a relation existing between the organisms and their environment with respect to the nature of the locality, the temperature and the amounts of light, and their relations to other organisms as enemies, rivals, or accidental and involuntary benefactors. There are many examples of ecosystems e.g. a pond, a forest, a firth, grassland. The study of ecosystems mainly consists of the study of certain processes that link the biotic (Living) components to the abiotic (non-living) components. Energy transformations and biogeochemical cycling are the main processes that comprise the ecosystem ecology. In ecosystem ecology we put all of this together and try to understand how the system operates as a whole. We try to focus on major functional aspects of the system such things as the amount of energy that is produced by photosynthesis, how energy or materials flow along the many steps in a food chain, or what controls the rate of decomposition of materials or the rate at which nutrients are recycled in the system. There are 2 Major ecosystems with their…show more content…
Natural forces bring about disturbances and changes, and species have to react. In fact, it's change and adaptation or else extinction. At all levels, biological diversity is an important factor. Both abiotic and biotic factors determine both where an organism can live and how much a population can grow. A limiting factor is a factor that restricts the size of a population from reaching its full potential. The amount of food & water in a habitat is an example of a limiting factor. Other factors include geographical space, predation, climate, competition (for prey, food, mates) etc. An example of a limiting factor is sunlight in the rainforest, where growth is limited to all plants in the understory unless more light becomes available. Or perhaps in a deciduous forest, there are not enough rabbits to support the growth of more foxes. All species within an ecosystem will experience some kind of limiting factors to prevent continuous and exponential
