Additionally, plants also provide us with the life giving Oxygen and various other products. Similarly we depend on different organisms for different needs. The earth has a large amount of biodiversity. Human being in addition with all the other living organisms how make Complex structure ecological system in which we all have a part to play and are quite the dependent on this whole system for our survival.

    This interaction of living being with their surrounding environment is known as ecosystem. In other words when the living organisms like human being microorganism interact with the non living organism or the components of the environment, it creates a healthy balance. Both the components are able to minimise the losses and increase the gains. This benifits everybody. Healthy system of dependability is known as ecosystem.
