artificial ecosystems are not invaded by humans

The different types of artificial ecosystems are terrarium , aquarium and agricultural land

Artificial Ecosystems like parks, gardens and crop fields are man made ecosystems where biotic and abiotic components interact and are affected interdependently.

they can be used for zoos or other types of reasons.

the artificial ecosystem is like a human source or a man made but the natural ecosystem is the natural resource .

All non living things comprise artificial ecosystem.Eg man made things:- buildings,toys,bridges,huge structures etc..

Artificial is something which is not natural.

Artificial is not natural, is man made.

The use of artificial fertilizer contributes to ground water pollution and leads to damages in the aquatic ecosystems. Since it does not decompose easily, it poses a health risks to animals and children.

biodiversity is the different kinds of living beings. like many ecosystems co-existing together.

A zoo has a bigger biodiversity than a natural ecosystem, say a forest. The inhabitants of the zoo range from monkeys to whales, each having a specialized habitat.

Essentially, the biosphere is the global sum of all ecosystems. They can be including artificial ones and even ones on other planets or moons.

1. Self-Occurringo Natural ecosystems are the result of spontaneous natural reactions and interactions between organizations and their environments. For example, an ocean is a marine ecosystem that has primary producers in the form of algae, as well as consumers and decomposers. The algae convert energy from the sun into usable forms through the process of photosynthesis, and then other marine creatures (i.e., consumers) consume the algae to derive their energy. When the consumers die, organisms known as decomposers break them down into organic matter. This natural ecosystem occurs by itself.An artificial ecosystem, on the other hand, does not occur by itself (i.e., it is the result of a deliberate human act). An example of an artificial ecosystem is a zoo, which consists of plants and animals outside of their natural habitats.2. Self-Sustainingo A natural ecosystem is self-sustaining and self-perpetuating. This means that it does not need any outside help to sustain itself. On the other hand, an artificial ecosystem cannot sustain itself without the help of humans. For example, a farm is an artificial ecosystem that cannot sustain itself. If a farm is neglected for a period of time, it will revert back to nature and its ecosystem will be destroyed. The same thing goes for a zoo; if the zookeepers do not care for the animals and plants, all of them will die and its artificial ecosystem will be destroyed.Lack of Diversityo Natural ecosystems are more diverse than artificial ecosystems. This is because natural ecosystems contain more biotic and abiotic factors than artificial ecosystems. The organisms and their relationships to each other are more complex than anything that can be found in an artificial ecosystem. A natural ecosystem has many relationships between organisms. These include symbiosis, predation, mutualism and commensalism, to name a few. Such relationships are limited in an artificial ecosystem. The number of species available in an artificial ecosystem pale in comparison to what is available in a natural ecosystem.Purposeo Natural ecosystems exist as a result of natural circumstances, while artificial ecosystems are usually created with an ulterior motive in mind. For example, a zoo is created for purposes such as entertainment, recreation, education, conservation and profit. A farm is created as a business venture or to provide food. A park is a man-made or artificial ecosystem that is created as a relaxation spot for conservation purposes or aesthetics.3.Types of Natural Ecosystemso There are innumerable types of natural ecosystems, from giant biomes like forests, to regional ecosystems like mountains and lakes, to the smallest tide pools and mud puddles.Types of Man-Made Ecosystemso Some man-made ecosystems are products of land development, such as lakes, ponds, canals, parks and gardens. Others, such as farms, orchards and vegetable gardens, are agriculturally based.Functiono Whether created for recreation, food, irrigation or observation (such as an aquarium or ant farm), man-made ecosystems are always designed to suit an outside purpose. Natural ecosystems are self-contained and exist only to perpetuate their own survival.Complexityo Man-made ecosystems are far less complex than natural ecosystems. They have little organic diversity and their food webs are relatively simple.Maintenanceo Natural ecosystems are self-regulatory, meaning that they don't require any outside assistance to function. Without the intervention of people, man-made ecosystems would decay and die.

the things which are created by humans is called artificial things, example robots

foods that are artificial mean that they are not grown naturally these include... - chocolate - Sweets - Curry

Biome is a group of ecosystems that have similar climates and communities.

DefinitionAccording to Webster's, a natural ecosystem is "the complex of a community and its environment functioning as an ecological unit in nature." More simply, it's both living and non-living things that interact with each other. Artificial ecosystems are man-made and imitate naturally occurring ones. Biosphere II outside Tucson, Arizona, is an extreme example of an artificial ecosystem.Source:

Ecosystems can be large and small itdoesn't matter. There are large ecosystems and small ecosystems.

Ecosystems that are established on land (as opposed to Marine ecosystems).

There are millions upon billions of different ecosystems and there are no names to them. I think you mean biomes. The different biomes are Tundra, Dessert, Forrest, Grassland, Marine, and Freshwater.
