When renewable resources are derived from animals and plants, they are called biotic renewable resources, whereas when renewable resources are obtained from non-living things, they are called abiotic renewable resources.
Non-renewable natural resources:- These are those resources which cannot be renewed or recycled or because they take a very long time to be created. Coal, oil, minerals and natural gas are examples of non-renewable natural resources. Naturally without any human intervention, non-renewable natural resources like minerals take thousands of years to form. These are also divided into two categories – biotic and abiotic.
Non-renewable natural resources, derived from animals, are called organic natural resources. An example of this could be fossil fuels.Non-renewable natural resources, when produced from non-living things, are called non-living natural resources such as wind, minerals, land and soil.
