The correct option is Option 4: Stratification.

The components of an ecosystem that function as units include:

  • Productivity
  • Decomposition
  • Energy Flow
  • Nutrient Cycling

These aspects are essential for the functioning and sustainability of an ecosystem.

Stratification, on the other hand, refers to the vertical distribution of different species occupying different levels within an ecosystem. It forms part of the structure of the ecosystem rather than being a functional unit itself.
