    I agree with Ibrahim, it is a nice subject. Very interesting and well presented. I'm puzzled by the answer to the first review question of Topic 1: "What is a re-created ecosystem in a laboratory environment known as? a. mesocosm, b. simulation, c. microcosm, d. reproduction" "Answer. A) Experimental systems involved in partitioning a part of a natural ecosystem that can be used for experiments, is termed a mesocosm." The Glossary (and the body of the course) states: "microcosm - a re-creation of natural ecosystems entirely in a laboratory environment to be used for experiments." "mesocosm - portion of a natural ecosystem to be used for experiments" I think mesocosm might be the right answer for a different question! Anyway thanks again, I'm looking forward to the rest of the course
