What is an ecosystem? How do human beings influence the ecology of a region?
All plants and animals in an area are interdependent and interrelated to each other and their dependence on the environment is called an ecosystem.
Human beings influence the ecology of a region in the following ways:
- They utilise the vegetation and wildlife.
- The greed of human beings leads to overutilisation of these resources.
- They cut trees and kill animals, thereby creating an ecological imbalance.
- As a result, some of the plants and animals have reached on the verge of extinction.
