Purpose, Evolution, and USE of Ecological Classification and Inventory Systems. The ecological classification and inventory (EC&I) system provides maps of ecological units at multiple scales, and ancillary interpretative information, useful in estimating ecosystem potentials and capabilities. An ecosystem is comprised of all the non-living elements and living species in a specific local environment. Components of most ecosystems include water, air, sunlight, soil, plants, microorganisms, insects and animals. Ecosystems may be terrestrial – that is, on land – or aquatic.

ecosystem management decades ago. Deputy Chief James C. Overbay () stated in a landmark Forest Service policy speech that “it is time to embrace the concept of managing ecosystems to sustain both their diversity and productivity and to chart a course for making this concept the foundation for sound multiple-use and sustained.   FUNCTION OF AN ECOSYSTEM To understand clearly the nature of ecosystem its functioning should be thoroughly understood. The function of an ecosystem is to allow flow of energy and cycling of nutrients. na Mani, Head & AP / Chemistry, AEC Salem Types of Functions Functions of an ecosystem are of three types. 1.

  Ecosystem representation is based on ecoregion classification (Demarchi et al., ) and, within ecosections, on biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification (Meidenger and Pojar, ). The Commission of Resources and Environment (CORE) was established to implement the Strategy (Commission of Resources and Environment, ). A wetland is a swamp, marsh, or other similar area that supports natural vegetation that is distinct from the adjacent upland areas. More specifically, a wetland is an area where a water table is at, near, or above the surface or where soils are water-saturated for a sufficient length of time that excess water and resulting low oxygen levels are principal determinants of vegetation and soil.

The concept and approach of biogeoclimatic ecosystem classification were followed. For the treed vegetation, five ecosystem types were distinguished based on vegetation structure and physical and chemical properties of soils. They were: 1) spruce-lichen type, 2) spruce-moss type, 3) spruce-Equisetum type, 4) spruce-willow type, and 5) bog.

Coniferous forest phytogeocoenoses of Hokkaido Island, Japan, were studied to classify them based on vegetation characteristics, to analyse their soils, to correlate the vegetation and soil characteristics, and to provide some ecological interpretation for the phytogeocoenosis differentiation and establishment.

Five forest types were distinguished based on the vegetation structure, each of. forest ecosystem attributes in order to provide a field-based assessment of ecosystem recovery following natural and human-caused disturbance. • Compare stand attribute data with analogous data collected from old-growth stands of similar BEC units.

• Use this information to guide site. Forest Ecosystem Classification is the first step in building a database of knowledge of your woodland. While it is a relatively recent concept, the past 10 years has seen an enormous step forward in the formulation and application of Forest Ecosystem Classification approaches to woodland management.

The use of a multi-scalar ecosystem framework, such as that developed by the British Columbia Biogeoclimatic Ecosystem Classification, provides an ecological context to use classified plant.

A forest ecosystem includes all of the organisms in the forest environment as well as the chemical and physical elements of that environment that influence them.

Forest ecology is the study of such ecosystems, which tend to be both structurally and biologically complex and diverse. Try and name the plants and animals. Use a reference book or the Internet to identify the plants and animals in your ecosystem.

Draw a distribution map showing where the different organisms were found in the ecosystem. Give each organism you found a code. Use the codes to make a map by showing where in the grid each organism was found. The most effective way to satisfy these obligations may be to use the paradigm of forest ecosystem management (FEM) as the template for forestry.

FEM requires long-term tenure and the management of all desired values and services under an integrated management plan that spans at least one full rotation (multiple rotations for short-rotation. An ecosystem can be defined as a community that is relatively self-contained.

So, a forest ecosystem is an ecosystem that is distinct, with distinct boundaries. We will clearly be able to see where the forest ecosystem begins and where it ends. There are various types of forest ecosystem throughout the world. The ecosystem functions through several biogeochemical cycles and energy transfer mechanisms.

A forest ecosystem is the basic ecologic unit in a particular forest that exists as "home" for a community of both native and introduced classified organisms. A forest ecosystem is named for the primary tree species that form the canopy. It is defined by all the collective living inhabitants of that forest ecosystem that co-exist together in symbiosis to create a unique ecology.

Forest ecology is an ecological science dedicated to understanding the complete biotic and abiotic systems within a defined woodland area. A forest ecologist has to deal with basic biology and community population dynamics, species biodiversity, environmental interdependence and how they coexist with human pressures including aesthetic preferences and economic necessity.
