    Biome A biome is a major class of ecologically similar communities of plants, animals, and soil organisms, often referred to as ecosystems. A microecosystem is a small system like a fish with parasites. These animals feed on dead organic matter that makes its way to the bottom. Biomes are often identified with particular patterns of ecological succession and climax vegetation. It is the product of the incomplete combustion of carbon-containing compounds, notably in internal-combustion engines. Since coal and petroleum contain various amounts of sulfur compounds, their combustion generates sulfur dioxide.

    Ecological succession A fundamental concept in ecology, refers to more-or-less predictable and orderly changes in the composition or structure of an ecological community. Climax community The term climax community is a largely obsolete ecological term for a biological community of plants and animals which, through the process of ecological succession - the development of vegetation in an area over time - has reached a steady state. In other areas such as land use, the privatization of land or subsequent control by governments has not yielded the desired results or changed policy. The study of ecology in general includes all of the subcategories listed above as they apply to marine ecology, animal ecology, plant ecology, insect ecology, arctic ecology, tropical ecology and desert ecology. It is also an excellent supplementary text for university courses in those fields.

    You may wish to choose one that you see a lot which will provide ample opportunities for studyor you may choose a rare species which may be more interesting. Marine ecology is a subset of the study of marine biology and includes observations at the biochemical, cellular, individual, and community levels as well as the study of marine ecosystems and the biosphere. Some such as S. The term ecologist has been in use since the end of the 19th century. Then, inalong came Rudyard Kipling.
