					                   The environment and ecosystem
The environment refers to the air,water and land in which people.animals and plants
live.So human beings,animals,plants,air water and soil are the main elements of the
environment.The natural forcs such as storms,cyclones and earthquakes are also a part of
this environment.Climate is thus a condition of the environment.

All things that make up the environment are interrelated.The way in which
people,animals and plants are related to each other and to their surroundings is known as
ecology.The ecosystem is a complex web that links animals,plants and every other life
form in the biosphere.All these things hang together.The system is in a steady state of
dynamic balance which means that by altering any one part of the web you can effect all
other parts.For example,the destruction of forests may have serious ecological
consequences on humans and animals.

It is the responsibility of human beings to prevent the environment from being spoilt.To
make life healthy and comfortable we should keep the environment clean and danger-
free.But often people spoil the environment by doing unwise things and.as a
result,endanger their own lives.It is the ecological imbalance that causes changes in the
world`s climate and brings about different kinds of natural disaster.
