Summary
Defines "community" to be somewhat like that of a human community and examines three natural communities, comparing them in terms of their similarities of ecological systems. Describes the western pine forest, the grasslands community, and the intertidal community on the California coast. Shows niches within the biotic community as occupied by herbivores, carnivores, and scavengers. Describes how the "pyramid of numbers," the food chain, and food web interlace into a complex system.
