Interactive video lesson plan for: Ecosystem Management | Biology for All | FuseSchool

Activity overview:

Regardless of the habitat type, method of management, or end goal, ecosystem management plays a large part in modern society. Without effective ecosystem management, we would have much less access to the resources that we use for our daily lives.

An ecosystem encompasses all of the biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) pieces of an environment.

All ecosystems are considered to be either wild or managed based on the amount of human influence in the ecosystem. Wild ecosystems are mostly free of man’s influence, and tend to be places like old growth forests and wildlife preserves.

Managed ecosystems are actively modified by humans, like parks in the middle of the city and farms.

While both wild and managed ecosystems are important, humans tend to favour managed ecosystems because they allow us to manipulate many of the ecosystems components to maximise our benefit.

Ecosystem management takes a variety of different forms depending upon the desired goal for the habitat. Two very common types of ecosystem management are forestry and agriculture.

Ecosystem management of agricultural areas has historically gone out of its way to reduce the biodiversity of a given area to a single species.
