Biotic components, or biotic factors, can be described as any living component that affects another organism or shapes the ecosystem.
These biotic and abiotic components are linked together through nutrient cycles and energy flows.

Ecology

Ecology (from οἶκος, "house", or "environment"; -λογία, "study of") is a branch of biology that studies the interactions among organisms and their biophysical environment, which includes both biotic and abiotic components.

If the number of predators was to increase, the entire food chain would be affected as any prey falling below that specified predator in the food chain will become prey.

Population size

Contradicting a decrease in population size, if a particular species reproduces too rapidly, this will cause an increase in population size, thus affecting the environment around them.

River ecosystems are flowing waters that drain the landscape, and include the biotic (living) interactions amongst plants, animals and micro-organisms, as well as abiotic (nonliving) physical and chemical interactions of its many parts.

Ecological fitting

It can be understood as a situation in which a species' interactions with its biotic and abiotic environment seem to indicate a history of coevolution, when in actuality the relevant traits evolved in response to a different set of biotic and abiotic conditions.

Desert ecology
