What is a biotope? Definition:
As habitats (Greek bios = life, topos = place) is called in biology certain, definable habitats. A biotope is to be considered separately from the organisms living in it (biocenosis), although no exclusion can take place, because a biotope only becomes a biotope through the living organisms. There is no difference whether the habitat originated naturally or through the influence of man.
Biotope and biocnosis together form a Цcosystem.
