living organisms in an ecosystem with the non living things or components. The energy transformations and biogeochemicalcycles are the two processes between biotic and non bioticcomponents that make up the subject matter of any study of an ecosystem.

Ecosystem and Ecology
"I bequeathe myself to the dirt, to grow from the grass I love;
If you want me again, look for me under your boot-soles."
- Walt Whitman
Introduction - What is Ecosystem & Ecology?
Ecosystem ecology is the integrated study of biotic and abioticcomponents of...
2. Abiotic and bioticcomponents influence each other. For instance, temperature (abiotic factor) can make plants (biotic factor) reproduce more or reproduce less. Also water, an abiotic factor, has an effect on how animals, a biotic factor, survive in certain areas of the world.
A constant interaction between the biotic and abioticcomponents of the biosphere makes it a dynamic, but stable system. These interactions consist of a transfer of matter and energy between the different components of the biosphere.
The water cycle...
In ecology and Earth science, a biogeochemicalcycle or nutrient cycle is a pathway by which a chemical element or molecule moves through both biotic (biosphere) and abiotic (lithosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere) compartments of Earth. In effect, the element is recycled...
systems – Energy but not matter is exchanged across the boundaries of the system.
Isolated system – Neither energy nor matter is exchanged across the boundaries of the system.

A biogeochemicalcycle, or a nutrient cycle is a pathway by which a chemical element or molecule moves through both biotic (biosphere) and abiotic (lithosphere, atmosphere, and hydrosphere) compartments of Earth. There are two major cycles in the...
material releases nutrients back into the water and mud.
According to Botkin and Keller (2009), biogeochemicalcycles are the complete pathways chemicals take through the four major components of earths systems, atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, and biosphere. The major biogeochemical...

abiotic reservoir The part of an ecosystem where a chemical, such as carbon or nitrogen, accumulates or is stockpiled outside of living organisms
biogeochemicalcycle Any of the various chemical circuits which involve both biotic and abiotic...
are reservoirs? Are they typically biotic or abiotic?
Carbon Cycle: How does carbon enter a community/system, where is it stored biologically and abiotically? How is it released? Why is it a macronutrient?
Nitrogen Cycle: Why is nitrogen important to living organisms? Where is most nitrogen found...
as all the nonliving (abiotic), physical components of the environment with which the organisms interact, such as air, soil, water and sunlight.
The term “eco-friendly” is used to describe activities which are good for the environment. It is a shortening of “ecologically friendly,” and you may...

example of a biogeochemical pathway, specifically the nitrogen cycle.
The movement of dust from central Asia to Kauai via wind is an example of a biogeochemical pathway, specifically the carbon cycle.
What are the biotic and abiotic portions of the Kauai rainforest ecosystem mentioned above?
Cycling of chemical elements and compounds between living organisms and nonliving components of the environment
The cycling of elements from biotic factors and abiotic factors in the environment
Water cycle is an example of a biogeochemicalcycle
Biotic factors are all the living factors in an environment (Plants). While abiotic factors are all non-living factors in an environment. The three types of interactions that occur are biotic-biotic (Betta Fish eating Hornwort, or Fly eating leaves), biotic-Abiotic (Plants...
the relationships – cycles, chains, webs – that are created as a result of these energy flows within the system and their inter- relationship.

1. Inorganic substances (C,N,CO2,H20 etc) incolved in material cycles.
2. Organic compounds (Proteins, Carbohydrates, lipids, humic substances etc.) that link biotic and abiotic.
