Learn about ecosystems and the relationships among the plants and animals that live there. Explore how matter and energy move through an ecosystem and what important roles sunlight, water, and carbon dioxide play in the survival of an ecosystem's inhabitants.
Discover how plants and animals adapt to changes in their environment and even how an ecosystem is able to recover from a catastrophic disaster like a volcanic eruption.
