To a visit to Yellowstone natinal park in Wyoming , you might see a prairie. Bison graze on prarie grass. Cowbirds follow the bison, catching the grasshoppers that jump from the bisons' hooves. This scene is part of an ecosystem. An ecosysem conists of all the organisims living in the area and the nonliving features of the environment.bison, birds, grass, and insects are the living orginisimsof this prarie ecosystem. water, sunlight, tempeture, soil, and air are the nonliving orginisims of the prarie ecosystem.
