I could be wrong but I think it’s because I’m a habitat you can have multiple ecosystems and in a large area you can have multiple habitats which each have multiple ecosystems. So therefore an ecosystem isn’t made up of habitats rather a habitat is often made up of different ecosystems of many sizes (you can have micro ecosystems within much larger ecosystems)

An ecosystem is the community formed between all of the biotic and abiotic matter or organisms within an area. I wonder if it is wrong because it specifically states that an ecosystem covers a large area? Many ecosystems exist on relatively small scales, such as ponds or small bodies of water.
