Classification Of Ecosystem
Ecosystems are classified as
2.Artificial (man-engineered) ecosystem
It operates by themselves under natural condition without any major interference by man. On the basis of habitat, natural ecosystem are further divided as terrestrial, as forest grassland, desert, etc.and aquatic. Aquatic ecosystem are further distinguished as Freshwater that may be lotic (running water as a spring, stream, river) or lentic (standing water as a lake, pond, pool, puddle, ditch, swamp etc.) and marine, such deep as bodies as an ocean and shallow ones as a sea, estuary etc.
ARTIFICIAL (MAN-ENGINEERED) ECOSYSTEMS
This is maintained by man, by addition of energy and planned manipulation. For example croplands like wheat, rice fields etc. where man tries to control the biotic community as well as the physical-chemical environment, are artificial ecosystem.
