Ecosystems are in equilibrium when there are enough resources to support all of the organisms and no organism or group of organisms over exploits these resources.  These types of ecosystems always contain primary producers which produced energy for the ecosystem. It can also include consumers on a primary and or secondary level as well as decomposers. The primary key is to maintain and balance energy flow as well as other essential resources in a way that is effective and supportive of all trophic levels.
