Example sentences for: abiotic

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

  • This method might entail some site-specific challenges in environments that are different from those on Earth, especially in developing appropriate controls for abiotic processes.

  • Because fungal pathogens appear to have similar abiotic requirements for growth as most fungi [ 1 13 15 16 ] , it is likely that fungal pathogens would show correlations with climate that parallel those reported in this study.

  • 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 ] .

  • This may lead to increased detritivore growth and decreased stress due to deficiencies in abiotic factors, as evidenced by the mosquitoes in high leaf litter treatments being unaffected by habitat size and shape.

  • 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.
