Description: An ecosystem is rarely static. A natural system composed of plants, animals, and microorganisms interacting with an area's physical factors, an ecosystem is always fluctuating and evolving. But sometimes, often at the hands of humans, ecosystems change too much. Such is the case with many of the ecosystems of the Middle Rio Grande Basin of New Mexico.
Keywords: Middle Rio Grande Basin, New Mexico, ecosystem, conservation, restoration, drought, bark beetle, grazing, fire, Valles Caldera National Preserve, climate change, bosque, Rio Grande silvery minnow, Hybognathus amarus
