does it me nonliving parts of the environment — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 01:32, 1 March 2012‎ (UTC)


Would it make sense to add a link to Abiogenesis in this article, considering that abiotic processes may have contributed to form an environment suitable for abiogenesis to eventually occur (in a sense the occurence of life, biotic, from non-life, abiotic)? (talk) 12:39, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

No objection having been raised so far, I have added links to Biotic component and to Abiogenesis. (talk) 02:44, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

Minerals / Vitamins[edit]

Would minerals (not bound to an organic substance) be considered biotic or abiotic? The same question is for vitamins, though their nature would seem to be biotic, might there be some that are abiotic?

They are abiotic chemicals present in the environment. Living organisms use them. If vitamins and minerals were generated by living things, then those chemicals would be biotic, but they are not. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 16:19, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
Vitamins are biotic organic substances made by the metabolism of living beings (plants, microorganisms...). Other organisms eat them by predation (herbivores, carnivores).--Miguelferig (talk) 18:36, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

Third paragraph[edit]

The third paragraph seems kinda unclear and ungrammatical. Clean up? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:47, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
