Comparison of Biotic and Abiotic in different ecosystem
Types of interactions
One species benefits and the other is not affected
eg: a giraffe may use a tree for shade and protection.
One species is harmed and the other benefits
eg : ticks on lions and fleas on dogs
one is inhibited and the other is not affected
eg : : Wild Boars will destroy a large portion of vegetation looking for insects
predator naturally benefits from this relationship, while the prey is harmed
eg : a lion hunting for his dinner which is a deer
Both species benefit
eg : bird eating ticks off of a buffalo. The bird gets a meal and the buffalo is tick free.
Indicates the amount of energy
Has limitation as the temperature rises.
Migration of birds
Amount of daily light
Right time to migrate
Depend on rainfall or water vapor
Only certain animal that live at high altitude with low pressure because it is harder to breathe
slope of land
position of the area in relation to the sun or rain-bearing winds
algal bloom and fish
larger fish will prey smaller fish for food
some parasites of fish cause infection in fish
pondweed provide protection and shelter to small fishes
algae and fungi
Do not have any limitation or problem compared to terrestrial
Water is not a major problem unless drought happens
It is a limitation for aquatic plants as it do not fully reach into the deeper sea.
the deeper the depth, the cooler the water temperature
Aquatic plant has the adaptation to a higher pressure in the water
