tropical rainforest interactions of biotic and abiotic
Tropical RainforestInteractions of Biotic and Abiotic
  • Biotic- plants feed animals, carnivores hunt for their food
  • Abiotic- heavy rain helps trees grow

what is biodiversity
What is Biodiversity?
  • Biodiversity is the number of different species of plants and animals in an environment. It is the variety of life. You can study it on many levels. Biodiversity can be studied practically anywhere. From the tundra and desert, to your neighborhood park.
