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

  • science (?) -

    What ecosystem factors are you considering? Rainfall? Temperature? Volcanic eruptions?

    What population(s) are you considering deleting?

  • science -

    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.
