Question 18

Which of the following is not considered as a part of the Abiotic Environment?

Solution:

 

Oops! Wrong answer!

In biology and ecology, abiotic components or abiotic factors are non-living chemical and physical parts of the environment that affect living organisms and the functioning of ecosystems. So, anything which is non-living and influencing a ecosystem at any level is abiotic.
Air: The atmosphere of the earth sustains life. The wind/air speed and direction affects the temperature and humidity of an area. Wind also carries seeds and aids pollination, spreading life. This lets plant forms travel out of a contained area.
Water: All living organism needs some water intake.
Soil: Abiotic factors have a strong impact on root–herbivore interactions by influencing herbivore abundance, because everything that lives on land depends directly or indirectly on soil. This will have an effect on types of plants that can grow in an ecosystem.
So, the only option left as a non-abiotic factor is Plants, because growth of plants depends on abiotic factors like water, soil, atmosphere, etc..
