Habitats of the World

When we think about life on Earth, we observe that various areas have distinctive plants and animals that are adapted to the particular environment. Scientists have made an effort to classify these areas into habitat types.

The natural setting in which an animal, plant, or other organism lives is known as its habitat. The quantity and kinds of creatures that live in a habitat are determined by factors such as climate, topography, water availability, and interactions with other plants and animals. A habitat can range in size from a cell to a continent. The total number of habitats is a subject of debate; the NASA lists 16 major habitats, while some textbooks only list 6, but in this article we will define 8 habitats.

), we will outline 8 ecosystems here. These ecosystems include the polar, tundra, evergreen, seasonal, grassland, desert, tropical rainforest, and ocean environments.

We will examine the energy flow within a habitat in order to better understand it, beginning with the plants (producers), moving on to the animals that consume the plants (consumers), and occasionally the animals that eat those plant eaters. The interactions between these primary, secondary, and tertiary consumers show how organisms are adapted to their environments.
