Under what conditions can two or more species inhabit a habitat



  1. 0 Votes

    A habitat, as defined by Princeton University, is “the type of environment in which an organism or group normally lives or occurs.” Many types of species can inhabit the same habitat, as a habitat can refer to just a marine habitat or a forest habitat. When there are many types of shelters available and lots of food and water sources, then multiple species can inhabit the same area.

    The only thing that two or more species cannot inhabit is called a niche. The niche is the exact ecological spot in the habitat a species lives in and takes into account what exact food the species eats, where it lives, etc. No other species can inhabit the exact same niche. If there are two species there, then one will eventually push the other species out.
