Classification of natural resources on the basis of origin


Classification on the basis of origin
Depending upon their origin, resources can be classified into following two types:

1. Biotic resources: These are composed of living organic matter obtained from the biosphere. Forests, crops, birds, animals and marine life are some examples of biotic resources. Some of these resources are renewable like forests whereas others like coal and oil are non renewable.

2. Abiotic resources: These are composed of non living inorganic matter. For example: land, sea, water, soil and minerals like iron, copper, lead and gold.
