Textbook Problem

How is a population different from a community? A niche from a habitat?

Expert Solution
To determine

The way in which a population differs from a community and a niche from a habitat.

Answer to Problem 1TC

A community is composed of several populations of living creatures that interact at a specific location. A population is a group of organisms of the same species that occupy a particular region.

A habitat is the “address” of an organism within its community, which indicates its physical location. A niche is the “occupation” of an organism within that habitat, its association to food and foes, and an expression regarding the organism’s function.

Explanation of Solution

The living creatures are distributed widely in the marine environment in particular groups of interacting characters of consumers, producers, and recyclers that share a common living ground.

These groups are known as communities.

A community is composed of several populations of living creatures that interact at a specific location. A group of organisms of the same species that occupy a particular region is called a population.  The location of a community and their populations depends on the biological and physical characteristics of that living space.

An organism has many different places to live and many different types of “jobs” are available to work on within a simple community. The “address” of an organism within its community which indicates its physical location is called as a habitat. An individual habitat has a degree of environmental uniformity. The “occupation” of an organism within that habitat is called as niche (nidus, “nest”). This indicates its relationship with enemies and food. Niche is an expression of what an organism is doing.
