Example sentences for: abiotic

How can you use “abiotic” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • In plants, mechanisms have evolved for sensing and responding to hormonal and environmental signals, both biotic (for example, pathogens) and abiotic (for example, heat, cold, light and salt/drought stresses).

  • However, if there are substantial differences in abiotic environments such that patterns in diversity and their responses to change differ between hemispheres, then such shifts may not be of similar consequence in the south.

  • If we were to find organic material in the subsurface of Mars or on the ice of Europa, how could we determine whether it was the product of a system of biology or merely abiotic, organic material from meteorites or photochemistry?

  • Abscisic acid response elements (ABREs) are important during the plant's response to abiotic stresses such as dehydration, salinity and cold, all of which are ABA-mediated [ 82 83 ] . There is evidence that ROS are involved in ABA signaling [ 84 ] . The enrichment of the ABRE motif in the promoter sequences of the genes in the stress cDNA collection may reflect crosstalk among stress signaling pathways mediated by common second messengers, such as H 2 O 2 . The over-representation of the SA-inducible element in the promoter sequences of the genes in the stress cDNA collection, especially those in the SA library, further validates the enrichment of the stressor-specific genes using the SSH technique and suggests that these genes may be regulated by the changes in the levels of SA that occurs in stress responses [ 85 ] .

  • First, it would be impractical to identify all fungi sampled, and second there is no reason to expect that pathogens and non-pathogens differ in their abiotic requirements for growth.
