How do volcanoes affect the ecosystem?
Volcanoes have negative and positive effects on ecosystems. A negative effect would be that they destroy some ecosystems. A positive effect would be that volcanic soil is very good for planting crops and farming. Another positive effect would be that they create new land for civilizations. Pioneer species, such as moss and lichen, could start an ecosystem from the volcanic soil.
