Nutrient cycling Role Biota in storage and recycling of nutrients.
The US Geological Survey defines natural resources as
a region's minerals, energy, land, water and Biota.
The Biota that developed yielded a particular landscape
and in turn gave the place local ingredients that enhanced flavors to the dishes.
The invasion, which also bears witness to the restructuring of Biota, is undoubtedly one of the most unpleasant manifestations of global warming.
Ecosystem services are the suite of benefits that ecosystems provide to humanity.”
The natural species, or Biota, are the caretakers of all ecosystems.
Remarkable fossil Biotas of Cambrian age(ca. 520 million years ago)
have been recovered from the Burgess Shale of British Columbia, Canada, strata of Chengjian area, Yunnan Province of China,
Sustaining a growing population on our dynamic planet requires a deep understanding of geological and geophysical processes within the Earth, and of how they interact with the atmosphere,
hydrosphere, and Biota.
Because of the great age and consequent low levels of fertility of the continent, its extremely variable weather patterns, and its long-term geographic isolation,
much of Australia's Biota is unique and diverse.
It explicitly recognizes that every Biota can be characterized by its taxonomic,
ecological, and genetic diversity and that the way these dimensions of diversity vary over space and time is a key feature of biodiversity.
