Why is it difficult to draw distinct boundries between most ecosystems?

Question asked by: knowitall

This is because most ecosystems don't exist in perfect isolation to other systems. There are interactions and feedbacks between all sorts of systems that impact on how they all function and how they all work.

Therefore boundaries and sometimes arbitrary and working out whether one element is related to another and part of it or just an external factor on an ecosystem or part of that ecosystem is really down to gut feeling and the toss of a coin!
