what may happen to an ecosystem if nonliving factors change or if one more populations are removed from or added to the ecosystem?

What ecosystem factors are you considering? Rainfall? Temperature? Volcanic eruptions?
What population(s) are you considering deleting?

If one or more populations are removed from an ecosystem, it will be harder for other populations to survive as well. This is because other populations might lose a source of food, and because of this, their population will eventually go down by a significant amount.
With the nonliving factors, such as water, a similar concept applies. With lesser water, it will be harder for animals to survive.
