Major
Ecosystems

 
Earth  is  a 
vast  ecosystem  it 
is  however  difficult 
to handle and thus for convenience we generally study it by making
artificial subdivisions into units of smaller ecosystem. (eg. Terrestrial
ecosystem as, forest ecosystem, desert ecosystem, grassland ecosystem,   manmade  
ecosystem   as   cropland  
ecosystem,   and aquatic ecosystem
as freshwater, marine, etc.)

• An ecosystem thus be separated from each
other but it must be remembered that these units of ecosystem are linked with
each other forming an integrated system.
