What is the difference between a population, community, and an ecosystem?

1 Answer

Answer:

The difference would be the factors (biotic or abiotic) which are included in each level of organization.

Explanation:

First, let's review biotic and abiotic factors.

Biotic factors are living organisms, an example would be a deer.
Abiotic factors are non-living objects, an example would be the air.

Population - All the members of one species that live in a defined area.

Community - All the different species that live together in an area.

Ecosystem - All the living and non-living components of an area.
