Ecology is the scientific study of the interactions between living species, such as humans, and their environmental elements. Humans, populations, communities, ecosystems, and the biosphere are all considered in ecology. Biogeography, evolutionary biology, genetics, ethology, and natural history are all closely related fields of ecology. Ecology is a separate branch of biology from environmentalalism. Wetland management, conservation biology, management of natural resources (agroecology, farming, forest management, conservation agriculture, aquaculture), urban planning community health, finance, basic and applied science, and human social engagement are just a few examples of practical applications of ecology (human ecology).
Ecosystems are dynamically interacting systems of species, communities, and non-living components of their surrounding environments. Primary production, nutrient cycling, and niche creation are examples of ecosystem processes that govern the flow of energy and matter through an environment.
Abiotic resources and interacting life forms, are found in ecosystems (individual organisms that aggregate into populations which aggregate into distinct ecological communities). Ecosystems are dynamic they do not necessarily follow a linear successional course, but they are always evolving sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly enough that ecological processes can take thousands of years to bring about particular forest successional phases [1-3].
Ecological dynamics can operate on a closed system scale, such as aphids migrating on a single tree, while remaining open to broader scale influences, such as the atmosphere or climate. To structure the study of ecology into a conceptually manageable framework, the biological world is organised into a nested hierarchy, ranging in scale from genes, to cells, to tissues, organs, organisms, species, populations, communities, ecosystems, biomes, and the biosphere are all examples of this .
Ecosystem services, which by definition preserve and increase human quality of life, rely heavily on biodiversity. To address the whole ecological breadth of biodiversity, conservation objectives and management strategies require multiple approaches and considerations. Species mobility for example riverine fish runs and avian insect control) has been implicated as one methodology by which ecosystem services are lost .
A species habitat outlines the environment in which it is known to exist and the type of ecosystem that emerges as a result. Habitats can be defined as territories in ecological system that are composed of multiple dimensions, each representing a biotic or abiotic environmental variable; that is, habitats can be defined as regions in atmosphere that are composed of multiple dimensions, each representing a biotic or abiotic respond to climate that is, habitats can be defined as regions in environmental space that are composed .
Biomes are bigger organisational units that classify portions of the Earth's ecosystems, mostly based on vegetation shape and composition. The continental limits of biomes dominated by specific functional types of vegetative communities that are limited in distribution by weather, precipitation, weather, and other environmental variables can be defined in a variety of ways [7-10].
The biosphere, or the total sum of all ecosystems on the globe, is the largest quantity of ecological organisation. All the way up to the global scale, ecological interactions regulate the passage of energy, nutrients, and climate. The biogenic flux of gases from respiration and photosynthesis, for example, has influenced the dynamical evolution of the global atmosphere's CO2 and O2 composition, with levels shifting over time compared to the ecology and development of plants and animals .
Metapopulations were first characterised in 1969 as a population of populations that have become extinct locally and then recolonize. Metapopulation models reduce the landscape into areas of differing levels of quality and metapopulations are linked by the migratory behaviours of creatures. Because it includes the periodic migration and return of individuals from a habitat, animal migration differs from other types of travel. Plant migration paths as they populated northern post-glacial settings demonstrate that migration is a population-level process .
