Describe the properties of air as a component of the ground-air environment.

Air has a low density, so it cannot act as a support for organisms (with the exception of flying insects and birds). Low air density also causes low pressure on land (760 mm Hg = 1 atm). With increasing altitude, the pressure decreases. Air is less than water, it prevents the penetration of sunlight, as it has a higher transparency.
