Communities can also be defined as functional groups, such as the intertidal community or alpine forest community, which may more accurately describe functional groupings of organisms. 12 Ecosystem Effects Alterations in the species composition and metabolism of an ecosystem are the most dramatic impacts that can be observed. Acid precipitation has been documented to cause dramatic alterations in both aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Introduction of nutrients certainly increases the rate of eutrophication.

Many nonlinear dynamics and historical nature of ecosystems confer upon the system the property of complexity. Complex, nonlinear structures have specific properties, listed by Çambel (1993). Complex structures are neither completely deterministic nor stochastic, and exhibit both characteristics. The causes and effects of the events the system experiences are not proportional. The different parts of complex systems are linked and affect one another in a synergistic manner. Complex systems undergo irreversible processes.

A Taub microcosm has a trophic structure: Energy comes from light, nutrient cycling occurs, and a variety of population and community dynamics occur within each jar. So each jar replicates in some features the characteristics of freshwater ponds. There are many features that are not simulated on purpose. In the process of constructing a microcosm experiment the environment is purposefully kept as homogenous as possible to reduce variability to ensure adequate statistical power for analysis. So the variations in physical structure, temperature, nutrients, and other environmental factors are purposefully reduced.
