Resources

  1. 1. What is resources ? All the useful elements of environment which satisfy human needs are called resources . Resources such as soil , rocks and minerals are valuable for man kind The food we eat  The trees which gives us shelter  The land where we live the wood we use to make furniture  the water we use Time and technology are 2 important factors that can change substances into resources.
  2. 2. Resources are generally classified into : NATURAL HUMAN HUMAN MADE
  3. 3. RESOURCES NATURAL RESOURCES USE HUMAN MADE RESOURCES ORIGIN STOCK HUMAN RESOURCES DISTRIBUTION ACTUAL BIOTIC RENEWABLE UBIQUITOUS POTENTIAL ABIOTIC NONRENEWABLE LOCALIZED
  4. 4. Natural resources occur naturally within environments that exist relatively undisturbed by mankind, in a natural form. A natural resource is often characterized by amounts of biodiversity and geodiversity existent in various ecosystems. Natural resources are derived from the environment. Some of them are essential for our survival while most are used for satisfying our wants. Natural resources may be further classified in different ways.
  5. 5. Natural resources are materials and components (something that can be used) that can be found within the environment. Every man-made product is composed of natural resources (at its fundamental level). A natural resource may exist as a separate entity such as fresh water, and air, as well as a living organism such as a fish, or it may exist in an alternate form which must be processed to obtain the resource such as metal ores, oil, and most forms of energy
  6. 6. Classification of Natural Resources: Level of development(Uses) Origin Stock Distribution
  7. 7. Actual Resources Potential Resources
  8. 8. Actual resources are those resources who’s quantity is known. These Resources are being used in the present. Examples Rich deposit of coal in Germany Petroleum in west Asia Dark soil of the Deccan plateau in Maharashtra
  9. 9. Potential Resources are those who’s entire quantity may not be known and these are not being used at present. These recourse could be used in the future. The level of technology we have at present may not be advanced enough too easily utilized these resources Examples  uranium in ladakh High speed winds
  10. 10. Abiotic Biotic
  11. 11. In ecology and biology, abiotic components (also known as abiotic factors) are non-living chemical and physical factors in the environment which affect ecosystems. Abiotic phenomena underlie all of biology. Examples  soil Rocks water
  12. 12. Biotic components' are the living things that shape an ecosystem. A 'biotic factor' is any living component that affects another organism, including animals that consume the organism in question, and the living food that the organism consumes. Examples Plants Animals Humans
  13. 13. Renewable Non renewable
  14. 14. A renewable resource is a natural resource with the ability to reproduce through biological or natural processes and replenished with the passage of time. Renewable resources are part of our natural environment and form our eco-system. Examples Solar energy Wind energy
  15. 15. A non-renewable resource is a natural resource which cannot be reproduced, grown, generated, or used on a scale which can sustain its consumption rate, once depleted there is no more available for future needs. Examples Coal Natural gas
  16. 16. Ubiquitous localized
  17. 17. Resources that are found everywhere. Examples Air we breath Water we drink
  18. 18. Resources which are found only in certain places. Examples Copper iron
  19. 19. Human-made resources also often referred to as "capital" includes all the man-made things that help grow an economy: money, factories, roads, etc.Sometimes natural substances become resources only when their origin form has been changed. Examples  Buildings  Bridges
  20. 20. People can make the best use of nature to create more resources when they have the knowledge, skill and technology to do so. That is why human biengs are a special resource. People are human resources. Education and health help in making people a valuable resource. Examples  community religion
