  • Ecotone
    An ecotone is a transition area between two biomes.
  • Natural landscape
    A natural landscape is the original landscape that exists before it is acted upon by human culture.
  • Pond
    A pond is a body of standing water, either natural or artificial, that is usually smaller than a lake.
  • Habitat
    A habitat is an ecological or environmental area that is inhabited by a particular species of animal, plant, or other type of organism.
  • Littoral zone
    The littoral zone is the part of a sea, lake or river that is close to the shore.
  • Plant community
    A plant community (sometimes "phytocoenosis" or "phytocenosis") is a collection or association of plant species within a designated geographical unit, which forms a relatively uniform patch, distinguishable from neighboring patches of different vegetation types.
  • Riparian forest
    A riparian forest or riparian woodland is a forested or wooded area of land adjacent to a body of water such as a river, stream, pond, lake, marshland, estuary, canal, sink or reservoir.
  • Intact forest landscape
    An intact forest landscape (IFL) is an unbroken natural landscape of a forest ecosystem and its habitat—plant community components, in a current extant forest zone.
  • Intertidal zone
    The intertidal zone, also known as the foreshore and seashore and sometimes referred to as the littoral zone, is the area that is above water at low tide and under water at high tide (in other words, the area between tide marks).
  • Cloud forest
    A cloud forest, also called a fog forest, is a generally tropical or subtropical, evergreen, montane, moist forest characterized by a persistent, frequent or seasonal low-level cloud cover, usually at the canopy level.
  • Habitat conservation
    Habitat conservation is a management practice that seeks to conserve, protect and restore habitat areas for wild plants and animals, especially conservation reliant species, and prevent their extinction, fragmentation or reduction in range.
  • Marine habitats
    The marine environment supplies many kinds of habitats that support marine life.
  • Phytosociology
    Phytosociology is the branch of science which deals with plant communities, their composition and development, and the relationships between the species within them.
  • Wildlife corridor
    A wildlife corridor, habitat corridor, or green corridor is an area of habitat connecting wildlife populations separated by human activities or structures (such as roads, development, or logging).
