We partnered with NOWU to bring to you this great quiz on all things ecosystems! A big thank you to Dr. Columba Martínez-Espinosa for sharing her expertise.
You can read it in French and use the interactive quiz here.
Before we get started, a little reminder: an ecosystem is a given physical environment with a certain number of specific characteristics such as humidity, a specific climate, etc., in which different organisms interact and depend on each other to live. If one of the elements is removed from an ecosystem, it works less well.
Today we want to uncover some special ecosystems…
We hope this allowed you to learn something new!
