In ecosystems, the internal environment comprises the biological, chemical and physical characteristics of the system – with particular emphasis on the species composition and dynamic interactions of the 32 MICROBIAL DIVERSITY AND FRESHWATER ECOSYSTEMS constituent organisms. 1) is a measure of its stability – the greater the stability, the more able is the system to resist external change. Although concepts of ecosystem stability and the mechanisms that control it have been developed mainly in relation to terrestrial environments, many of the principles may also be applied to aquatic systems.
Ecosystems are themselves part of a larger geographic or global unit, the biosphere, which is the sum of all ecosystems within a particular zone. 4). 1 Main ecosystems Major aquatic environments such as lakes, rivers and wetlands form a discrete ecological unit, with their own characteristic community of organisms; they can be referred to as main ecosystems. Each of these main ecosystems contains a diverse array of distinctive groups of organisms (subsidiary communities), each in their own particular environment, forming subsidiary ecosystems.
2. Controlled population growth. Growth rates of bacteria within the biofilm are controlled by the quorum sensing system that acts as a negative feedback process. High population densities trigger the induction of stationary phase characteristics, including reduced rates of cell division. , due to ingestion) the quorum control will cease to operate, and division will increase. 3. Balance of mixed populations. The balance of different organisms will be determined by differential growth rates, stable food webs and specific adhesion mechanisms.
