The physical environment is the physical and chemical make-up of an ecosystem. It includes the climate, rainfall, winds, soil, obtainable nutrients, etc., within the ecosystem. The physical environment affects the organisms that live in particular ecosystems. Physical environment affects organisms. For example, different organisms are found in a desert than in a rainforest.
