Select a representative natural ecosystem in your area or one in which you are interested- such as a lake, preserve, or park- that is managed for native species.

The paper has to be 1,000 words explaining the following:

-The major structural and functional dynamics of your selected ecosystem

-How humans may have affected the cycling of matter in ecosystems, including effects to the nitrogen, phosphorus, or carbon cycle

-How knowledge about that ecosystem’s structure and function can help or has helped to develop plans for its restoration or management

-The implication of species interactions on your selected ecosystem.
