Factors Limiting the Productivity of Aquatic Habitats

Sunlight and oxygen are the two most important limiting factors of the aquatic ecosystems. This distinguishes them from the terrestrial ecosystems where moisture and temperature are the main limiting factors. We will now consider some of the important limiting factors which exert controlling influence on productivity of aquatic ecosystems, namely sunlight, transparency, temperature and oxygen.
