habitat

Habitat

A habitat is an ecological or environmental area that is inhabited by a particular species of animal, plant, or other type of organism.

A habitat is made up of physical factors such as soil, moisture, range of temperature, and availability of light as well as biotic factors such as the availability of food and the presence of predators. A habitat is not necessarily a geographic area—for a parasitic organism it is the body of its host or even a cell within the host's body.
