Abiotic and biotic factors

The environment includes abiotic and biotic factors. Abiotic factors refer to non-living physical and chemical elements in the ecosystem, So we can say easily, Abiotic factors are those non-living physical and chemical factors which affect the ability of organisms to survive and reproduce.
Other side Biotic factors are living or once-living organisms in the ecosystem, In other word, Biotic factors are all the living things or their materials that directly or indirectly affect an organism in the environment.

  • Temperature range
  • Type of soil or rock
  • pH level (acidity or alkalinity)
  • water availability
