term definition
Biotope

A physical space occupied by a biocoenosis or a community of animal and plant species. // A biotope refers to an area of uniform environmental conditions that provides a space to live for a set of flora and fauna. Biotope is almost synonymous with the term, habitat, except that a habitat refers to species or populations whereas biotope refers to biological communities. It derives from the German word, "Biotop", which in turn comes from the Greek: “bios” = life or organism, and “topos” = place.
