ECOLOGY




Ecology is the scientific study of the relations that living organisms
have with respect to each other and their natural environment. Variables
of interest to ecologists include the composition, distribution, amount
(biomass), number, and changing states of organisms within and among
ecosystems.

Ecosystems are hierarchical systems that are organized into a graded series
of regularly interacting and semi-independent parts (e.g., species) that
aggregate into higher orders of complex integrated wholes (e.g., communities).
Ecosystems are sustained by the biodiversity within them.

Biodiversity is the full-scale of life and its processes, including genes,
species and ecosystems forming lineages that integrate into a complex and
regenerative spatial arrangement of types, forms, and interactions.
Ecosystems create biophysical feedback mechanisms between living (biotic)
and nonliving (abiotic) components of the planet. These feedback loops
regulate and sustain local communities, continental climate systems, and
global biogeochemical cycles.

Ecology is a sub-discipline of biology, the study of life.

An understanding of how biodiversity affects ecological function is an
important focus area in ecological studies.



Ecologists seek to explain:


Life processes and adaptations

Distribution and abundance of organisms

The movement of materials and energy through living communities

The successional development of ecosystems,

The abundance and distribution of biodiversity in context of
the environment.


Ecology is a human science as well. There are many practical applications
of ecology in conservation biology, wetland management, natural resource
management (agriculture, forestry, fisheries), city planning (urban ecology),
community health, economics, basic and applied science and human social
interaction (human ecology). Ecosystems sustain every life-supporting function
on the planet, including climate regulation, water filtration, soil formation
(pedogenesis), food, fibers, medicines, erosion control, and many other natural
features of scientific, historical or spiritual value.

ECOSYSTEMS




Imagine an ecosystem as a tiny world within our world.
Here, living things, like plants and animals, interact
with non-living elements, including water, rocks, soil
and temperature.

Every portion of the ecosystem influences everything else.
An ecosystem exists within a larger area called a biome.
