  1. Spatial or habitat niche – is the physical area within the habitat that a species occupied
  2. Trophic niche-  is the trophic level occupied by the species in the food chain or ecological chain
  3. Multidimensional niche – consists of the concept of fundamental niche and the limiting factors.
