Please explain briefly about the difference between the words 'community' and 'habitat'.

The textbook said "The place where an organism occurs is called its habitat" and "All the populatons of plants and animals in the same habitat make up the community" But I just don't get it.

  • Biology -

    Think about your community and habitat.

    Your community is made up of the people, plants, and perhaps animals. Your habitat may be a city, farmland, desert, forest, suburbia, etc. Your habitat also includes average temperatures, rainfall, etc.

    In other words a community is made up of living organisms that interact with each other.

    A habitat is the place where the community exists.
