Non-living nature is what?

We are surrounded from the very beginning by nature, itsbeauty and wealth form the inner world of man, cause admiration and ecstasy. Yes what to say, we are also part of it. And along with animals, birds, plants, we are components of the so-called living nature. This includes fungi, insects, fish and even viruses and microbes. But what, in that case, are the objects of an inanimate nature?

inanimate nature is
This part of the world is studied by naturalscience. And if, as it is possible to assume logically, everything that is inherent in life relates to living nature, then everything else can be considered as inanimate. What exactly, we will discuss further. And the very first thing to talk about is the four main elements.


In the first place, inanimate nature is itselfland, as well as parts of the earth's landscape: sand, stone, minerals and fossils. To the same "company" can be attributed even the dust, because it is a cluster of small particles of all of the above. Also, inanimate nature is the world's ocean and every drop of water in it. In general, our planet is covered by moisture by 71%. It is found both deep underground and in the air that we breathe. And all these are also objects of inanimate nature.

inanimate nature examples
Air also belongs to this category. But the microorganisms that inhabit it are nature already quite alive. But smells and wind fall under the phenomena described by us. Also inanimate nature is fire. Although it, perhaps, more often than other elements are animated in human culture.


objects of inanimate nature
Well, I want to clearly show what it isa non-living nature. Examples of its objects are extremely diverse: it's all the winds blowing on the planet, and every lake or puddle, and mountains, and deserts. Inanimate nature is sunlight and moonlight. It is represented by all kinds of weather phenomena: from rain to tornadoes and aurora borealis. In general, inanimate nature is the combination of factors and conditions in which we live.


At the same time, separating it from living nature would bewrong: both varieties are symbionts and affect each other. So, people, animals, bacteria - all species evolve in the course of their existence, that is, they adapt to existing conditions. In turn, the life activity of each being forms and changes the nature of the inanimate. In the case of animals, it is fertilizing the soil, digging holes. In the case of humans, more global landscape processing, the use of minerals, the construction of cities. Almost all human activities are aimed at changing inanimate nature to suit their own purposes. Unfortunately, it is precisely these kinds of actions that do not always lead to positive results. Because of human impact, water bodies dry up, the soil layer is depleted as a result of improperly organized agricultural activity, glaciers are melting, the ozone layer is being destroyed. Therefore, it should be remembered that not only animals and birds require protection from extinction. Objects of inanimate nature also often need to be protected from barbarous use by man.
