Climate Changes

1st secondary school of LavrioEcosystemAn ecosystem is a community of living organisms in conjunction with the nonliving components of their environment (things like air, water and mineral soil), interacting as a system. These biotic and abiotic components are regarded as linked together through nutrient cycles and energy flows.

Function and biodiversityGlobal Biodiversity is the variety of different types of life found on Earth and the variations within species. It is a measure of the variety of organisms present in differentecosystem.

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather patterns when that change lasts for an extended period of time (i.e., decades to millions of years). Climate change may refer to a change in average weather conditions, or in the time variation of weather around longer-term average conditions (i.e., more or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change is caused by factors such as biotic processes, variations in solar radiation received by Earth, plate tectonics, and volcanic eruptions. Certain human activities have also been identified as significant causes of recent climate change, often referred to as "global warming"

DesertificationDesertification is a type of land degradation in which a relatively dry land region becomes increasingly arid, typically losing its bodies of water as well as vegetation and wildlife. It is caused by a variety of factors, such as climate change and other human activities. Desertification is a significant global ecological andenvironmental problem.

Energy flowIn ecology, energy flow, also called the calorific flow, refers to the flow of energy through a food chain. In anecosystem, ecologists seek to quantify the relative importance of different component species and feeding relationships
