Hi. I live in Wisconsin and I have to describe how productivity (amount of biomass produced), diversity (variety of species), complexity (number of species in trophic levels and number of trophic levels), and resilience (remaining stable) affects my ecosystem. I really have no idea how productive, diverse, complex, or resilient Wisconsin is. Can someone please help?!

  1. Wisconsin has several different ecosystems. Decide which one you want to cover andexplore it in more detail.

    Since this is not my area of expertise, I searched Google under the key words "Wisconsin ecosystem" to get these possible sources:

    In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
