An ecosystem contains living and non living things. The ecosystem has many examples of the interaction between the living and non living.
The living things in an ecosystem are called biotic factors. Living things include plants, animals, bacteria, fungi and more.
The non living parts of an ecosystem are called abiotic factors. In an ecosystem some abiotic factors are sunlight, temperature atmospheric gases water and soil.
One example of the interaction between abiotic and biotic factors is with plants. The plants use sunlight, water, and CO2 to make food. Without these abiotic factors plants would not be able to grow.
Another example is the interaction between turtles and soil. Some turtles are known to bury themselves in soil. When the temperature becomes too hot turtles seek protection in the cool underground.
Elephants and water interact as well. In order to stay hydrated elephants drink water. In fact all biotic factors need water to survive.
Fish and temperature also show the interaction between living and nonliving. A fish’s’ body temperature matches it surroundings. warm tropical waters keep a tropical fish’s body operating at an optional temperature.
Another example is a fox and snow. When the temperature drops and snow starts to fall some foxes grow a white fur coat. The thick coat insulates and keeps the fox warm. Also the color matches it surroundings, an adaptation known as camouflage.
Lastly Bacteria and soil interact. Bacteria are decomposers. Decomposers get energy by recycling dead organisms back into the ground. Nutrients enter the soil helping making the ground fertile.
Take a look out of your window and try to identify interactions between abiotic and biotic factors

My Teacher made me watch it
this is our principal
i’m in 8th grade- and my teacher is making me watch this because i totally didn’t know anything from this-
Oh no no, the sun is ALIVE!
He is a fired ASMR employee.
my teacher made me watch this
who else did the teacher made you watch this in 6th grade
If we have the same homework and your rushed- here
1. A biotic factor is a living thing in an ecosystem
2. Four examples of biotic factors from the video are Plants, animals bacteria, and fungi
3. An abiotic factor is the non-living things in an ecosystem
4.Five examples of abiotic factors from the video are the sun, temperature, water, atoms, and soil
5.Three abiotic and biotic interactions that occur are that the plants need water and co2 to make food, the interaction with turtles and soil, some turtles are known to bury themselves in the soil, and elephants and water, to stay hydrated they drink the water
like this is this is stuff we dont know
it is awsome to watch
Who else is here being forced from their teacher to watch this 🙂🤚
ice is nice
ice is nice
ello, ive been sent by the teacher on 14/07/21 and yes I was forced to…
I love how the CO2 is backwards, and looks like C2O, which is impossible.
here let me cut it down:
humans dirt (soil
anything that breathes air

Great video man
Ayo young technoblade??
Guess who was forced here
