Abiotic component

In biology, abiotic components are non-living chemical and physical factors in the environment. Abiotic phenomena underlie all of biology. Abiotic factors, while generally downplayed, can have enormous impact on evolution. Abiotic components are aspects of geodiversity.They can also be recognised as "abiotic pathogens"

From the viewpoint of biology, abiotic influences may be classified as light or more generally radiation, temperature, water, the chemical surrounding composed of the terrestrial atmospheric gases, as well as soil. The macroscopic climate often influences each of the above. Not to mention pressure and even sound waves if working with marine, or deep underground, biome.

Those underlying factors affect different plants, animals and fungi to different extents. Some plants are mostly water starved, so humidity plays a larger role in their biology. Many archaebacteria require very high temperatures, or pressures, or unusual concentrations of chemical substances such as sulfur, because of their specialization into extreme conditions. Certain fungi have evolved to survive mostly at the temperature, the humidity, and stability.

For example, there is a significant difference in access to water as well as humidity between temperate rainforests and deserts. This difference in water access causes a diversity in the types of plans and animals that grow in these areas.

Question:2) name 5 biotic components in an ecosystem 3) name 5 abiotic components in an ecosystem 4) how do they relate to each other 5) what are he kinds of ecosystem? give 5 examples for each kind 6) if you were to create a complete ecosystem, what components would you include in it? why? please help me guys. thanks.

Answers:I took this from wikipedia. It's for reference!! An ecosystem, a contraction of "ecological" and "system", refers to the collection of components and processes that comprise, and govern the behavior of, some defined subset of the biosphere. The term is generally understood to refer to all biotic and abiotic components, and their interactions with each other, in some defined area, with no conceptual restrictions on how large or small that area can be. In biology, Abiotic components are nonliving chemical and physical factors in the environment. Often, these are described as light, temperature, water, atmospheric gases, wind as well as soil (edaphic) and physiographic (nature of land surface) factors. These factors could be said to be the definitions for the exact environmental conditions in which plants need to grow. Oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen are the most commonly described gasses; and the wind, soil, and physiographic conditions can also combine in multiple ways to affect organisms. In general terms an ecological system can be thought of as an assemblage of organisms (plant, animal and other living organisms also referred to as a biotic community or biocoenosis) living together with their environment (or biotope), functioning as a loose unit. That is, a dynamic and complex whole, interacting as an "ecological unit." Other population ecologists, stochastists, (den Boer & Reddingius, 1996), view an ecosystem as an expression of stochastic events, and corresponding responses from organisms. Thus, ecosystems result from the sums of infinite individual responses of organisms to stimuli from non-living and living elements in the environment. The presence or absence of populations merely depends on reproductive and dispersal success and population levels fluctuate in response to stochastic (chance) events. As the number of species in an ecosystem is higher, the number of stimuli is also higher. Check the link for more info you need. I'm not familiar with this, besides basic info but hopefully this helps.


Answers:can't think of 5, but the amazon rainforest is a good one to talk about. Could mention; the emergent layer, the canopy, the ground layer and all the wildlife habitated in each part also the woodland is a good one to mention hope that helps :)
