Closed Ecosystem

We are part of the Earth’s closed system just as the microbes are part of the closed system in the glass container. They break down leaves to produce the building blocks for new plants. The plants produce oxygen, while the bacteria produce carbon dioxide.

The lamp shows a closed ecosystem. An ecosystem is characterised by a flow of energy and the circulation of chemical substances. It is easy to see in this case how everything is reused in the system. Our planet is also a closed ecosystem. Anything you release will be included and circulated. This is why we today have several different chemicals in our bodies.
