The abiotic factors are the nonliving components of an ecosystem.

The article will list that each of the following is an abiotic factor in the environment except air, water, soil, heat, cold, light and chemical reactions are all abiotic factors. 

Plant life is not an abiotic factor because it is living matter that makes up part of the biotic factor in an ecosystem.

 Some organisms live either on land or in water and they will depend on other organisms for food and depending on oxygen to produce carbon dioxide through photosynthesis or respiration which moves gases through different parts of the environment so this atmosphere can be used by all living matter. 

Some organisms are parasitic and remove energy from other organisms so they don’t have to work out as hard.

Every organism in an ecosystem needs each other and some of these organisms are parasitized so each organism has a role in the biotic factor.

 Plants can be used for food, clothing, building materials, medicines or bio fuels like ethanol and biodiesel from plants which can replace fossil fuels or replace polluting emissions from industries on the environment.

In the biotic factor, what do all the organisms with a role in the biotic factor work together to thrive. 

These organisms are photosynthesizing sunlight and using water, carbon dioxide and carbon dioxide, oxygen and heat. Another way of defining life is as an organized system with a function.

1. Atmosphere – 

This is an element of an ecosystem that uses oxygen as a source for new molecules that can move through every part of an ecosystem depending on exchange between living matter. 

When animals breathe in oxygen we can breathe out carbon dioxide so it is used by every organism in the environment to produce energy from glucose or broken down into much smaller particles which are used by the organism which produces these gases. 

When plants produce oxygen and carbon dioxide, it is used by organisms in the environment through cellular respiration. 

The gases are passed on to other organisms like animals and the organisms then pass it on to others and some of these organisms can use the oxygen or carbon dioxide in photosynthesis which helps them grow faster.

2. Sunlight – 

The sun provides energy for all living matter to live on by using a process called photosynthesis. 

This process uses sunlight, water and carbon dioxide as energy so they can grow faster than without sunlight. Plants use it to make water and carbohydrates pathways.

3. Water – 

Water is used by all organisms in the environment to complete their activities and will be used as a source of energy for many organisms in the ecosystem.

 Animals need oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and hydrogen to complete their functions so all these things can be found in water, but some organisms need to remove all the substances from water so there is no trace of these chemicals left on plants or animals, this is called osmotic removal and this will occur when an organism excretes with some kind of waste or tears using faeces or urine.

4. Soil –

Soil is made up of a variety of minerals, organic matter and microorganisms

All these things are needed to make soil and will be used by plants when they need nutrients to grow faster and better.

5. Heat – 

Heat is required by all organisms in an ecosystem because they are used to keep the temperature between 0 and 40 degrees Celsius. 

It is the temperature change when water evaporates.

6. Cold – 

Cold is required by all organisms in the environment to keep their body temperature within a narrow range, usually between 5 and 15 degrees Celsius.

 It keeps organisms alive although they can’t survive too cold or too hot conditions, and it protects them from heat or UV light.

 Some organisms regulate their body temperatures by moving or manipulating air around them to prevent heat loss and gain during the day and night. 

They are also affected by the cold so they will avoid it if possible.

7. Chemical Reactions –

Chemical reactions are used by living organisms in the environment.

 They are a key part of an organism’s existence because they will be used to help them make energy or produce a substance that they need for their survival and also these chemical reactions will produce waste products which can be used as fertilizers to help plants grow and grow faster. 

Plants use chemical reactions as their main source of energy and it is important for them to use other organisms like bacteria and fungi which are involved in the ecosystem to produce food so they won’t starve.
