Ecosystems

Ecosystems are the whole web of relationships among a particular environmental habitat and the plants, animals, and human beings who depend on it. Some of these ecosystems, such as the oceans, are not under the control of any one or number of nations, however. Who, then, should be responsible for protecting those areas? At the same time, some ecosystems are under the control of one nation, but that one nation may have neither the resources nor the inclination to protect them. Should other countries care about environmental damage in another country that has no clear cross-border affects? If so, how can those other nations reverse that damage without impinging on the first country’s sovereignty?
