Affect of Abiotic factors



An abiotic factor is the nonliving physical features of the environment, for example, water, carbon dioxide, oxygen and rocks. The ecosystem would not be able to live without abiotic factors because the plants would need carbon dioxide.

The higher you are above sea level, the cooler the temperature. Temperatures are colder further north and south from the equator. Temperature also decreases as latitude becomes more north in the Northern Hemisphere and more south in the Southern Hemisphere.

We need air to breathe, plants also need air to grow. We also need water to stay hydrated and soil also needs water to help plants grow and stay healthy. The sunlight then shines on the plants and the temperature must stay warm for plants. Different species need a certain type of temperature to stay alive. That is why there are different climates ex: cold climates, warm climates, hot climates etc..

Soil,Water, air,and sunlight are the most important abiotic resources in our ecosystem, here's why
