1) An ecosystem is an ecological system

2) An ecosystem is a system of plants and animals that live together in a particular environment. The animals and plants interact with each other and their surrounding environment.

3) The size of an ecosystem can vary from very large to very small. A garden pond is an ecosystem and so is a tropical rainforest.

4) The world's largest ecosystems are called biomes.
