Ecology is the study of general principles concerning the

interactions between organisms and their physical and

biological environments. These principles are used to

interpret patterns in the abundance, distribution, and

diversity of organisms, taxa, biomass, and productivity in

both space and time. These interpretations form the

scientific basis for:

-predicting the consequences of environmental change on ecosystems

-management strategies for preventing or minimizing the loss of

ecosystem services threatened by human activities or environmental


-management strategies for manipulating natural systems to yield

sustainable net benefits to society
