Biotic and abiotic factors in an ecosystem are totally dissimilar. Biotic factors are all of the living things in an ecosystem, and as such are composed of cells, and include decomposers, producers, and consumers. Abiotic factors are all of the non-living things in an eccosystem, are not made of cells, and include such substances as soil, rocks, water, oxygen, and carbon dioxide. Living things need the abiotic factors for their survival.
