​Every organism in an ecosystem depends on other factors, both living and non-living, for their survival.

What affects one part or component of an ecosystem will affect the entire ecosystem. When one organism leaves or enters an ecosystem, it could result in the reduction of the rate of survival for the remaining organisms. Each organism is classified depending on the role that they fill in an ecosystem.

Which of the following roles does a honey bee fill in a flower meadow ecosystem?

A

The top consumer.

B

The top producer.

C

The essential species

D

The keystone species.
