Ecology and Ecosystem

An ecosystem is a complex set of relationships among living resources, habitats and residents of a region. And Ecology is the scientific study of the processes influencing the distribution and abundance of organisms, the interactions among organisms, and the interactions between organisms and the transformation and flux of energy and matter.

India is blessed with a wide variety of ecosystems. But its ecosystems and ecology are assaulted increasingly. Ecological understanding offer tangible hope for addressing extremely complex and potentially devastating assaults on local, regional and global ecosystems. And this kind of understanding can only be developed when information on varied ecosystems and ecology reach out not only to policy makers but also to people at large. It should especially reach out to the weaker segments of the populations of developing countries like India, for these are the people who suffer most from a loss of nature’s services. Information on ecology and ecosystems help in identifying key issues as well as identifying trends, drivers and potential responses. These would provide lessons that would be of great value to the decentralized development planning.
