Are plants abiotic factors?
No, don't get plants confused with abiotic factors, plants live because they grow and have light just because they don't move doesn't mean their dead.
An example of how biotic factors depend on the abiotic factors within a habitat is like trees and plants (biotic) depend on water and sunlight (abiotic) to live. Without these elements, the trees and plants would not be able to live...so the plants depend and need sunlight and water to live and to produce more trees/plants.
Biotic Factors Biotic, meaning of or related to life, are living factors. Plants, animals, fungi, protist and bacteria are all biotic or living factors. Abiotic Factors Abiotic, meaning not alive, are nonliving factors that affect living organisms. Environmental factors such habitat (pond, lake, ocean, desert, mountain) or weather such as temperature, cloud cover, rain, snow, hurricanes, etc. are abiotic factors.
