  [hs height=”450″ theme=”3d-dark” buttons=”true” ] 00:08 Hey, Dr. Binocs? 00:11 Hey, who’s that? 00:13 It’s me, the pond! 00:16 Oh, how are you? 00:18 Not good! Humans are dirtying me. 00:22 Oh, that’s sad. 00:24 They are actually harming our ecosystem! 00:27 Oh, that reminds me about today’s topic Ecosystem! 00:32 Come, let me tell you all about it! 00:35 Zoom in! 00:38 Ecosystem is a community of living organisms along with their natural habitat.. 00:44 ..and the non-living components of their environment. 00:48 This network of living and non-living components in a given area.. 00:53 ..is known as an ecosystem. 00:56 An ecosystem could be a pond, could be your house as well. 01:01 And some believe that our Earth is an ecosystem too! 01:07 Ecosystem includes two major components: 01:11 Biotic and Abiotic components. 01:14 Abiotic components are the non-living elements of the system. 01:19 Such as Air, Water, Sunlight, Nutrients, and temperature. 01:25 Biotic component are all the living organisms living in the system. 01:31 Like plants, animals, fungi, micro-organisms and you! 01:38 Ecosystems can be of any size. 01:41 The area under your plant pot. 01:45 Under this rock. 01:48 A pond. 01:50 A puddle. 01:51 The vast ocean. 01:53 The city you live in. 01:55 Or your country! 01:58 Take the area under a rock, for example. 02:02 In this ecosystem, you’ll find biotic components like the micro-organisms.. 02:08 ..insects and abiotic components.. 02:12 ..like soil, nutrients, air, etc! 02:17 Now, this is an important piece of information. 02:21 Each organism living in an ecosystem has a Role or Niche. 02:27 For example, a Deer living in the forest is a prey. 02:31 Lions, tigers, coyotes and other animals eat them for food. 02:38 Now imagine if a Deer was supposed to eat lions, coyotes, and wolves? 02:43 Wouldn’t that make things difficult for an ecosystem? 02:48 We must remember that no two organisms can have the same niche or too long. 02:54 After a while one has to either leave or go extinct. 03:00 TRIVIA TIME! 03:02 Did you know that even you are an ecosystem? 03:07 Yes, you are an ecosystem to the thousands of microorganisms that inhabit in you! 03:15 Our ecosystem is really important. 03:18 If we keep polluting our ecosystem like that! 03:23 we would soon go extinct and Earth wouldn’t be habitable ecosystem ever! 03:30 On this note, this is me, Zooming out, tune in next time for more fun facts! 03:38 Hey kids, you liked my videos didn’t you? 03:42 Before you go don’t forget to click on the subscribe button and the bell. 03:47 So you won’t miss out on my latest videos. 03:52 See you.
