• Habitat- all the biotic and abiotic factors in an area where an organism lives
• Ecological niche- is composed of all the physical, chemical, and biological factors that a species needs to survive, stay healthy, and reproduce
• A niche includes-
-food (types they eat, their part in food web)
- abiotic (conditions the organisms can tolerate
-behavior (time of the day species is active, when and where they reproduce)
• Functional niche- all places an organism is able to live
• Realized- where an organism currently lives in their functional niche
