Biological community

What is a biological community?

A biological community is a interacting group of various species in a common location. 

All the spiecies living within a particular geographic area make up a biological community. For example, a forest of trees and plants, inhabited by animals and rooted in soil containing bacteria and fungi, makes a biological community. Over time biological communities can develop, and more plants and animals can reproduce. It is important that a balance must be maintained between consumption and production of resources, for a biological community to survie and thrive.


Examples a biological community:

  • Forest
  • Woodlands
  • Ponds
  • Deserts
  • Oceans
  • Urban
  • Grasslands
  • Rainforests


Why is a biological community important?

A biological community is important because the whole eco system (a natural biological community that is made up of both living and non-living parts) is relient on certain organisms plants and animals. If one aspect of the biological community is threatend then this could have a serious impact on the rest of the community. For example if part of an animals food chain dissapears then this could affect other parts of the food chain. All aspects of the biological community depends on eachother.
