Biogeography is the study of the distribution of species and ecosystems in geographic space and through geological time.
A biome is a community of plants and animals that have common characteristics for the environment they exist in.
Domestication is a sustained multi-generational relationship in which one group of organisms assumes a significant degree of influence over the reproduction and care of another group to secure a more predictable supply of resources from that second group.
An ecosystem is a community made up of living organisms and nonliving components such as air, water, and mineral soil.
Endemism is the ecological state of a species being unique to a defined geographic location, such as an island, nation, country or other defined zone, or habitat type; organisms that are indigenous to a place are not endemic to it if they are also found elsewhere.
Evolution is change in the heritable characteristics of biological populations over successive generations.
An introduced species (alien species, exotic species, non-indigenous species, or non-native species) is a species living outside its native distributional range, which has arrived there by human activity, either deliberate or accidental.
Native plants are plants indigenous to a given area in geologic time.
In biology, a species is the basic unit of classification and a taxonomic rank, as well as a unit of biodiversity, but it has proven difficult to find a satisfactory definition.
