BIOTIC & ABIOTIC
Biotic and abiotic factors combine to create an ecosystem. An ecosystem is a community of living and nonliving things considered as a unit. The plants and animals interact with other organisms and with other non-living elements in the area such as temperature, gasses, and soil, etc. Biotic organism is able to reproduce themselves. Abiotic factors can exist without biotic factors; however biotic factors are dependent on abiotic factors.
Biotic resources are based on living organisms, obtained from the biosphere. The biotic organism involve in the Pandas environment are trees, bamboos and animals. Pandas depend on other biotic organisms, such as bamboos, weeds, bushes and animals for food and shelter. Bamboos are also dependant on the Panda as it distributes bamboo seeds throughout the area. Many animals live on the Pandas ecosystem and each has a role on the environment. Other organisms such as snow leopard sometimes depend on baby Pandas as food. Pandas are dependant to bamboos for food. And decomposer animals feeds on dead organisms.
Abiotic resources are the nonliving chemical or physical properties if the environment, obtained from lithosphere, atmosphere and hydrosphere. The Panda interacts with abiotic components of the environment such as temperature, oxygen, gasses, soil and water. Oxygen and water is required for the Pandas survival, without these abiotic factors the Panda would not be able to function. Photosynthesis provides plant with energy and these plants are the Pandas food. An abiotic factor such as weather temperature changes, determine the Pandas seasonal movement.
