An ecologist is a biologist who studies how the
living organisms and their non-living environments
all relate to each other.

Some examples of living and non-living things that make up our environments are:

LIVING

NON-LIVING

Plants
Animals
(including humans)
Fungi
Microorganisms

Oceans
Soil
Glaciers
Atmosphere 
Volcanos


An ecologist is a scientist.
  A scientist is a scientific investigator.

An ecologist looks for the reasons
that cause plants, animals and the environment to be unhealthy.
Then scientists conduct research to find out how to correct what is wrong.
