All ecosystems have one thing in common — they are formed by the interaction of living and non-living parts in an environment. In this video, students will learn all about ecosystems. Ecosystems come in all sizes. It may be as small as a puddle and can be as large as the whole Earth. Living organisms adapt to conditions of the environment they are living in. In order to study the interaction between living and non-living parts in an environment, we have to look at ecosystems at the biome level. Deserts, tropical rainforests, and temperate deciduous forests are examples of ecosystems.
