An Ecosystem (Contraction of “ecological” and “system”) is an assemblage of plants, animals and other living organisms that live together with their environment. Altogether, they function as a unit: they interact and complete each other in dynamic ways, such as eating each other or helping each other (for example, some fishes clean bigger fishes from parasites and get their food at the same time) to achieve ‘balance’ that works well.
