    Natural resources Natural resources Presentation Transcript

    • Those resources that are drawn directly fromthe nature and used without muchmodification are known as natural resources .For example , air , water , soil , minerals , etc.
    • Division of natural resourcesOn the basis of originOn the basis of stages of developmentOn the basis of renewabilityOn the basis of DistributionHuman resources
    • On the basis of origin Biotic resources Abiotic resources
    • All living things are included in bioticresources . These are also called organic orliving resources . All type of animals andplants are its examples.
    • Abiotic resources are non living things . Theseresources are also called inorganic resource ornonliving resources . All type of nonlivingresources such as , soil , rocks , minerals , etc.
    • On the basis of stages of development Actual resources Potential resources
    • These are the resources whose quantity is known.These resources are being used in the present.Example - The rich deposits of coal in Ruhr regionof Germany.
    • These are the resources whose total quantity may notbe known.These resources are not being used at present. Thesecould be used in the future.For e.g. Uranium found in ladakh.
    • On the basis of renewability Renewable resources Non-renewable resources
    • Renewable resources are replaced through naturalprocesses at a rate that is equal to or greater thanthe rate at which they are used, and depletion isnot a worry . For e.g. air , wind , etc.
    • Nonrenewable resources are exhaustible and areextracted faster than the rate at which they formed.For e.g. fossil fuels.
    • On the basis of Distribution Ubiquitous resources Localised resources
    • Ubiquitous resources are those resources that arefound everywhere on earth . Examples of ubiquitousresources are land , air , soil etc.
    • Those resources that are found somewhere are calledthe localised resources . Examples of Localisedresources are iron , gold , copper , silver etc.
    • Human resources refer to the number as well as the mental& physical abilities of the people . They can make efficientuse of resources through proper management and theirutilization . For e.g. education , intelligence , etc.
    • Conservation of natural resources refers to themanagement of natural resources such as land , water ,soil, plants and animals, with a particular focus on howmanagement affects the quality of life for both present andfuture generations.
