Welcome Jane Risdon

Background

Robbie, thanks so much for hosting me on your lovely blog, I am so happy to be here.

For those who may not know me or know of me, I thought I’d tell you something about my background.

I am an author, a dream come true for me having spent the best part of my life living in silent despair of ever being able to achieve my life’s ambition. After years of living another life — well, two really — I have managed to become a published author and one represented by an agent. Something I had never imagined.

My early life was spent working for various (British) government departments. I worked for the Ministry of Defence in Germany, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London, and later for the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (Intervention Board), and later for the Atomic Research Establishment at Harwell. Most of it was boring. But it has stood me in good stead where material for my writing is concerned.

Welcome to my new series…still an A-Z but with a difference …it’s not food-related!

In the meantime, the idea for this series came about because yes as my regular followers and commenters know I am passionate about the health of the world I am living in… however often when I am researching and reading articles I come across terms and have to look them up which spawned the idea for this…two-fold… it increases my knowledge and I hope yours…

The A-Z of the environment and Climate Change… letter E.

The best way to predict your future is to create it…Abraham Lincoln.

Ecosystem:

A community of organisms that depend on each other and the environment they inhabit…However, there is far more to the ecosystem than I first realised…It is divided into 4 categories…those being artificial, terrestrial, lentic and lotic which are all part of the biomes which are climatic systems of organisms and life.

Inside of the biomes systems, there are living and non-living environmental factors known as biotic(organisms, animals and plants) and abiotic (water, light and gasses)

Now let’s look at the 4 categories:
