Biology Lab 66 28 February 2008 Introduction Ecology is the study of the interrelationships of organisms with each other and with their nonliving environment (Audesirk, et al. 2006). This particular area of the science community can be argued as the most important and broadest field of study in terms of objects that can be studied or observed. For instance, there are billions of organisms in which to study and there are also an abundant amount of ecosystems, to study, in which these organisms thrive. For example, there are four different types of aquatic ecosystems studied in laboratory practices E1 through E3. These four ecosystems include an artificial aquatic habitat (aquarium), natural aquatic habitat (Norskedalen spring), microcosm environment, and a chemostat environment. The purpose behind making observations and performing studies on these aquatically similar ecosystems was to determine the different organisms and determine the differentiating factors that makeup these aquatic habitats. Studies on the levels of seven different chemicals present in the ecosystems, observation and identification of organisms, and the development of
