This is a collection of regularly updated news articles and stories about ecology, the scientific study of the relation of living organisms with each other and their surroundings. Ecosystems are defined by a community or network of individuals that arrange into a self-organized and complex hierarchy of pattern and process. Ecosystems create a biophysical feedback between living (biotic) and nonliving (abiotic) components of an environment that generates and regulates the biogeochemical cycles of the planet. Ecosystems provide goods and services that sustain human societies and general well-being. Ecosystems are sustained by biodiversity within them. Ecology is a sub-discipline of biology, the study of life. The word "ecology" was coined in 1866 by the German scientist Ernst Haeckel a zoologist, artist, writer, and later in life a professor of comparative anatomy.
