Concept of Ecology


Assalamualaikum and hi budding ecologies I’m going to introduce you on a concept of ecology Ecology is the study of inter relationship of organism and their environment or habitat Ernst Haeckel in 1869 coined the term ecology there are several level in the hierarchy of ecological organization from individual organism to biosphere The ecology of individual deal with physiological and behavioral processes over a period of time for example how does saltwater crocodile regulate the water balance or how does proboscis monkey deal with the fibrous diet of the leaf from the mangrove tree A group of individual of a species in an area is called a population there is an evolutionary linkage between individual of species within and between population The ecology of population attempt to determine the factors inferring the population structure of for example the saltwater crocodile or the Nasarists Lavertus or proboscis monkey The community is a group of interacting species or population in an area Committee ecology attempt to describe the reasoned affects the number of crocodiles in the river system or primates living in the tropical rainforests An ecosystem is an interconnected system of biological communities and their physical environment The question asked is how does forest destruction affect little layers? and nutrient aviability in the tropical rainforest Landscape is a heterogeneous area consisting of forests or vegetated patches or a mosaic of habitats In landscape ecology we can ask question How does the forest corridor affect the movement and distribution of elephant, tigers among isolated forest fragments? The biomes is a large region that is characterized by the predominant plants that is influenced by climatic factors For instance tundra and desert because of temperature extreme or the tropical rainforests because of high rainfall and temperature throughout the year The bio geographic region can also be influence by the past climatic change and geological histories For example, how does the freshwater fish in Endau, Rompin Minang Chopraya Mekong and Murong share the same genetic fingerprinting during the present time Biosphere is the hydrosphere surface and atmosphere of the earth occupied by all living organism They are interacting with the environment In other word it is the total global ecosystem The question asked is what does concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide play in the ocean acidification My question to you is if you are studying on the behavior of iconic probocis monkey in the popular Bako National park in Sarawak Why do you need to consider the influences of the thousands of eco-tourists? watching and following the movement of the population? I hope you enjoy the ecology around you Thank you very much
