Abiotic and biotic factors Abiotic and biotic factors Presentation Transcript

  • Abiotic and Biotic Factors
    8 Science
  • What is the difference?
    Abiotic and biotic factors are features of the environment
    Biotic factors:
    ‘bio’ = living
    Living or once-living organisms
    Example: grass is a living thing and is part of the school environment, gives cows in the fields energy
  • What is the difference?
    Abiotic factors:
    ‘a’ = not
    abiotic = non-living things
    These factors help determine whether a species can survive in an area
    Example: sunlight affects whether a plant can grow
  • ABIOTIC or BIOTIC?
  • HOMEWORK QUESTIONS: do not need to copy the question, just the answers in FULL SENTENCES
    What is the difference between an abiotic and a biotic factor? Give at least 5 examples of each (that we have NOT already used today)
    What is the difference between a population and a community? A community and an ecosystem?
    Could oxygen in the atmosphere be considered an abiotic factor? Why or why not? What about carbon dioxide?
    Each person lives in a population as part of a community. Describe your population and community.
