      • Temperature
        • Affects how plants grow
        • Affects the type of plants that will grow
        • Plants determine what type of food will be available
        • Animals are also affected by the temperature
      • Light
        • Light is an important factor in photosynthesis (plants making their own food)
        • Light from the sun provides thermal energy (heat)
        • Light is also a factor in ocean ecosystems
      • Soil
        • Supports the growth of plants
      • Water
        • Water is necessary for all life processes
        • The amount of water determines what type of plants and animals are in the ecosystem
