How does the phosphorus cycle move through abiotic and biotic factors?
Phosphorus cycles through both biotic and abiotic factors through the phosphorous cycle.
Phosphate is stored in rocks and sediments, which are abiotic. Phosphorous, also in the form of phosphate, may be transported by water or wind (both abiotic).
Phosphorus is taken up by plants which are living and these plants may be consumed by other living organisms or they may die and be decomposed by decomposers, which are also living.
The phosphorous cycle is composed of both biotic and abiotic factors which interact with phosphorus in its various forms, storing it, absorbing it, and so forth.
