Ecological systems are relatively self-contained and self-sustaining systems. They include not only living but nonliving elements in a relatively stable relationship to one another as well as with the larger context that defines the conditions of their existence. Thus, the components in an ecological system are in a dynamic balance that sustains the various elements as well as the overall balance of the system. That balance also provides the context for interrelated adaptations and changes of the components in the system.
