Biotic Factors

Home Location Abiotic Factors Biotic Factors


The biotic components that are found in a location are affected by the combination of abiotic factors in that area. This affects the distribution of plant and animal life in the Smokey River Valley. The photograph shows the south-facing slope of the valley in the distance, as photographed from the north-facing slope. 

The south-facing slope receives considerably more sunlight than the north-facing slope, and as a consequence has a drier micro-climate than the north-facing slope. Our discussion of the plant and animal life of the region will refer to these differences.
