An ecosystem is defined as a community of lifeforms in concurrence with non-living components, interacting with each other.
Types of Ecosystem
An ecosystem can be as small as an oasis in a desert, or as big as an ocean, spanning thousands of miles. The two different types of ecosystems include
- Natural Ecosystem
- Artificial Ecosystem
The artificial ecosystem includes dams, gardens, parks which are made by humans. The zoos, aquariums and botanical gardens are examples of artificial ecosystems which are maintained with the objective of conserving biodiversity. The plants and animals are placed in well-protected areas similar to their natural habitats.
