What is an ecosystem?
An ecosystem is a system formed by the interaction of a community of organisms with their environment. These communities function as a unit in nature in which each species in the system is dependent on the others, and no one species is of greater value or importance.

Listen to Roger Payne's Voice from the Sea piece entitled:
