Everything in the nature is connected. An ecosystem is a community of living and non-living things that work together. Ecosystems doesnt have no particular size. An ecosystem can be as large as a desert . If you have a terrarium, that is an artificial ecosystem. The water, water temperature, plants, animals, air, light and soil all work together. If there is no enough light or water or if the soil doesn't have the nutrients, the plants will die. If the plants die, animals that depend on them will die.
An ecosystem includes all of the living things in a given area, interacting with each other, and also with their non-living environments
Usually, biotic members of an ecosystem, together with their abiotics factors depend on each other. This means the absence of one member, or one abiotic factor can affect all parties of the ecosystem.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
