  Some ecosystems exist in a steady state, or homeostasis. In steady-state systems, the amount of input and the amount of output are equal. In other words, any matter entering the system is equivalent to the matter exiting the system. An ecosystem includes living organisms and the environment that they inhabit and depend on for :// Steady state models represent a group of ecological models that characterize ecosystem structure and properties at equilibrium. Ecopath is a typical steady state model for trophic mass–balance   Steady-state theory was a theory proposed in 20th-century cosmology to explain evidence that the universe was expanding but still retain the core idea that the universe always looks the same, and is therefore unchanging in practice and has no beginning and no end. This idea has largely been discredited due to astronomical evidence that suggests the universe is, in fact, changing over :// Read the latest chapters of Developments in Environmental Modelling at , Elsevier’s leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature

This level of the hierarchy examines how one organism interacts with its environment. Aspects of evolution are used extensively in studying this level.
