Name one kind of ecosystem?
An ecosystem is a community of living things that interact with each other and their environment. Different ecosystems have different climates, plants and animals living within them. Ecosystems are an important part of our world and need to be protected.
An ecosystem is a community of living and nonliving things that interact with each other. These living and nonliving things form a complex web of relationships. Biodiversity is the variety of different species in an ecosystem. It is important to an ecosystem because each species plays a role in the environment. Energy Flow is the transfer of energy from one organism to another. For example, plants use the energy from the sun to make their own food, which is then eaten by animals.
What is your favorite type of ecosystem?
Rainforests are home to more than two thirds of the world’s plant and animal species. More than one million different species of insects live in tropical rainforests. Deserts can receive more than 4 inches of rain in a single day during the rainy season.
