Slide 1: Ecosystem includes all abiotic and biotic factors in one particular environment Biotic Factors the living parts of an ecosystem Abiotic Factors the nonliving parts of an ecosystem Slide 2: Biotic Factors include plants, animals, fungi, microorganisms Biotic Factors/ Components : Biotic Factors/ Components These are the living things an environment.
Biotic means living, and biotic factors are the other, living parts of the ecosystem with which an organism must interact.
The biotic factors with which an organism interacts depend on whether it is a producer, a consumer, or a decomposer. Slide 4: Examples of Biotic Factors Slide 5: interact with each other in complex ways Biotic Factors also interact with abiotic factors in the ecosystem parasitism mutualism competition dependent upon water, minerals, temperature, light such as Slide 6: Abiotic Factors include air, water, soil, temperature, wind, source of energy (usually sun) Abiotic Factors : Abiotic Factors “abiotic”- without life
Refers to those environmental factors that are not alive, the non-living components of the environment. Slide 8: Examples of Abiotic Factors Difference Between Biotic and Abiotic factors : Difference Between Biotic and Abiotic factors The difference between these two factors is that biotic deals with the living parts of the environment and abiotic deals with the non-living part of the environment, Eg, the sun, which is an abiotic factor aid in photosynthesis for plants, which is a biotic factor that makes food
