Terrestrial Ecosystems of Africa

Organisms and non-living elements of the environment such as climate, soil, and water are connected through the movement of nutrients and energy in ecosystems. Ecosystems represent specific areas where organisms and environmental conditions create a network of interactions and are affected by forces such as disturbance (temporary change in environmental conditions that causes a pronounced change) and succession (process of change in the species structure of an ecological community over time). This layer maps the Ecosystems of Africa, based on Africa's climate regions, topography and lithology (bedrock), with a 100m spatial resolution.
