Question

An ecological "niche" can be defined as ________. 


  1.  the inorganic, nonliving aspects of a given area

  2. the specific environment an organism inhabits

  3. the role an organism plays in its community

  4. the various habitats an organism may inhabit


Solution

The correct option is C

the role an organism plays in its community


An ecological niche describes the role and position a species has in its environment; how it meets its needs for food and shelter, how it survives, and how it reproduces. A species' niche includes all of its interactions with the biotic and abiotic factors of its environment. Habitat usually describes the place that an organism inhabits and does not take into account the role of a particular species in that community.
