How do humpback whales select their calving areas? (c) Community ecology. What factors influence the diversity of species that make up a particular forest? (d) Ecosystem ecology. What factors control photosynthetic productivity in a temperate grassland ecosystem? (e) Landscape ecology. To what extent do the trees lining the drainage channels in this landscape serve as corridors of dispersal for forest animals?
