Forest ecosystem – the amazon
A forest ecosystem is the community formed by plants and animals of this particular environment that interact with the chemical and physical features of the environment in which they live. The amazon rain forest is an example of a forest ecosystem.
Ecosystems can be complex and hard to manage. In fact, they can encompass diverse species and habitats. As such, specific planning and prioritization is needed in order to protect them from the different threats that might undermine their existence, but also preserve and enhance the life of species...

Ecosystem Preservation versus Conservation
Earth is composed of many different ecosystems and each one is a "dynamic complex of plant, animal, and micro-organism communities interacting with the non-living environment as a functional unit" (Protecting Threatened Ecosystems, 2004). These ecosystems are...

The Value of Maintaining Natural Ecosystems: Preservation vs. Conservation
While preservation or conservation may not be at the top of everyone list, it is a political hot topic. Most Americans would probably agree that protecting the environment is, at the very least, worthy. If nothing else, the...

effective conservation of rangeland biodiversity also needs to better demonstrate the economic contribution rangelands make to overall development. Strategies for rangelands need to establish policy frameworks that promote sustainable use of range resources, create incentives for conservation by local...
Wildlife conservation is the practice of protecting wild plant and animal species and their habitats. Among the goals of wildlife conservation are to ensure that nature will be around for future generations to enjoy and to recognize the importance of wildlife and wilderness lands to...

Deep ecology is the means of shifting the value of humans to non-human nature. Humans can no longer look at themselves as the sole entity of the ecosystem, but part of a whole that needs each part to successfully work. Fritjof Capra believes that shifting our views from the old world anthropocentric...

The terms conservation and preservation are often viewed as being two separate and distinct functions. I strongly believe that conservation and preservation should not act singularly but work together in the eventual goal of maintaining an ecosystem. Both may be deemed secondary arguments over maintaining...

natural resources are the basis of production, manufacturing, and waste disposal. Conceivably the reason why economics is central to biodiversity conservation is because unless it makes definite economic and financial sense for people to conserve biodiversity, it is highly unlikely that individuals will...
