Relationship between abiotic and biotic factors

The abiotic factors( soil and climate) of the Aspen parkland Biome shaped the biotic factors( animal and plants ) by making the animals and plants living in this Biome adapt to the dry and windy conditions of the Aspen parkland Biome

The plants found in this area are
  • Aspen trees(Populus tremuloides)
  • Deciduous trees
