The interplay of biotic and abiotic factors
Today’s diversity of species, but also the mass extinction of entire groups of animals, has been influenced by a number of non-biological factors. Populations were separated by the formation of mountain ranges or by continents drifting apart. Meteoroid impacts are thought to be responsible for mass extinction events, while volcano eruptions also created new habitats for plants and animals. This guided tour explores the complex interdependencies between living and inanimate nature.
