What is an ecosystem exactly, and what can we expect to find there? We will begin with a discussion about plants, what they need to survive, and how this forms a food web. Learn why stability is so critical by demonstrating what happens when a species is added or subtracted from the web, and what this means in the context of an ecosystem. Then, we’ll play a game to balance our ecosystems.
