Living microorganisms like bacteria and fungi break down organic materials and lead to humification and mineralization in the soil. This decomposition process is paedogenesis.

c) Abiotic Air and water Soil

Abiotic factors are non living components of the environment that have a strong influence on living components of the environment. Air, water and soil, these all are abiotic components of environment.

d) Carbon dioxide Photosynthesis Shell (animals)

Photosynthesis is a process wherein plants prepare their own food by using carbon dioxide, water, sunlight and chlorophyll. They release oxygen and food as by-products. Carbon from carbon dioxide dissolves in seawater and combines with calcium to form shells of calcium carbonate CaCO3.
