A biotic thing would be for example a human or tree, anything alive. Something abiotic would be a rock or chair, something not alive.

Biotic means pertaining to life or living organisms. It is produced or caused by living beings. It refers to the living components in ecosystems. Thus anything that is capable of reproduction, feeding, producing waste and cell division is called biotic. Ecosystems are made up of biotic and abiotic factors. Thus plants, animals, human beings, micro organisms etc are the biotic factors that forms a part of the eco system. They play an important part in ecology and its functions.

Thus as ecology is a branch of biology, the word biotic also has its origin in biology. It is the straight opposite of abiotic factors which consists of nonliving things like, air, temperature, climate and so on. Thus biotic is also a biological term and is concerned with it.

Abiotic factors are essentially non-living components that effect the living organisms of the freshwater community.

As opposed to abiotic components (non-living components of an organism's environment, such as temperature, light, moisture, air currents, etc.), biotic components are the living components of an organism's environment, such as predators and prey.
