The term abiotic is a mix of two words, these are a- which means without and bio which means life. What are the Types of Abiotic Components? There are five different types of abiotic components.

[Image will be Uploaded Soon] Based on Abiotic Factors, there are Several Types of Ecosystems: We will discuss about the abiotic factors of these ecosystems in the following:
Responses to Abiotic Factors Living organisms respond to abiotic components in various ways. This list of abiotic factors include:
Q: Why are Smaller Animals not Seen that much in Polar Regions? A: Small animals which are generally conformers did not evolve to become regulators because thermoregulation is energetically expensive and for many animals, heat gain or heat loss is a function of the surface body area. Small animals have a larger body surface area than their volume. They tend to lose body heat very fast in cold temperatures. Then they have to utilise much energy to generate body heat through metabolism that is why very small animals are not or rarely found in Polar Regions.
