Two Well Known Ecosystem Examples

from:

There are many different types of ecosystems throughout the world. An ecosystem is defined as “a biological community that occurs in some locale and the physical and chemical factors that make up its non-living environment.” Forests and grasslands are just two ecosystem examples.

The Ecosystem Example Of A Pond

A pond is an easy ecosystem example to look at and to define. While some ecosystems are harder to confine a pond is self contained within the boundaries of its shore. The pond is an extremely important ecosystem. Many animals rely on the ecosystem of the pond including birds, frogs, fish, plants and microscopic organism. The ecosystem of the pond is made up mostly of the water of the pond. The pond is very important to the ecology of the surrounding ecosystem as well. If a pond is in a forest area the forest animals will come to rely on the pond as a source of water and food. Also the animals that live in the pond ecosystem are extremely important to the balance of animals in the environment.

The Ecosystem Example Of A Forest

The forest is another great ecosystem example to study and learn about in order to get a better understanding of its importance. Forests are invaluable for many different reasons. Forests provide a home for countless animals and birds and forest products are important to the economy of the country. The forest industry is a big business and the forest ecosystem provides products such as plastics, paper, wood for furniture and homes, dyes, medicines, oils, flavorings, chewing gum, and numerous other items. There are several different types of forest ecosystems.

• Coniferous or cone bearing forests are found in colder climates and consist of softwoods.

• Deciduous forests that provide eye candy in the fall with their beautiful display of colors are generally hard woods such as oak, maple and poplars.

• Tropical rainforests can be found where it is very humid and rainy. There are thousands of plant and animal species living in the ecosystem of a tropical rainforest that would not be able to survive anywhere else.

The ecosystem of the forest includes a wide variety of animals and plants ranging from tiny micro organism to giant redwoods and sequoias. Each part of the ecosystem that makes up the forest is vital to the survival of the forest. Insects re-pollinate trees and squirrel carry nuts throughout the forest hiding them in secret stashes. Some of those nuts will be buried and germinate to produce a new generation of tree for the forest. Every living thing in the forest ecosystem is important to the balance and structure of the forest.
