People usually think cold places are harsh environments. Hot places are also harsh areas. The Sahara Desert is one the most harshest ecosystems in the world. For starters. The process photosynthesis is used. Photosynthesis is the process used when plants use sunlight or water and turn them into energy. An example of photosynthesis being used is plants gaining sunlight and water, using it as energy and starts growing stems, leaves, petals etc. This is the start of an ecosystem. These producers (the plants) are then eaten by animals that eat plants. These animals are called herbivores. These herbivores would be eaten by predators. Carnivores or in more simpler terms, flesh-eaters. In turn, they would also die and decomposers would decompose them into the ground giving more nutrients for more plants to grow. This sort of ecosystem is and example of plants and animals working together and is called a food chain.
