The Interdependence of Life SciPack explores the interactions between organisms and the environments in which they live. There are many relationships between organisms which can be beneficial or damaging. These interactions and the competition for resources in part determine in what locations organisms can survive and thrive. These locations all over the world are categorized by the climate of those areas and the organisms living in them. The delicate balance that is kept by the organisms in these regions is examined and demonstrated, not just from the perspective of the natural world, but based on human interactions and interference as well. The result is a representation of the rich tapestry of life that covers the planet Earth.
