Ecology looks at the interactions between organisms and their non-living environment. Changes in either the living or non-living components of any ecosystem can have dramatic effects. Climate changes being experienced in our lifetime are due to ecological changes both natural and human-caused. Knowledge of ecological processes is key to slowing many of the adverse changes being experienced on Earth from global warming to rapid extinction of many organisms.
