adaptive zone


Quick Reference

A taxon that is considered together with its associated environmental regime(s), habitat, or niche. The adaptive specialization that fits the taxon to its environment, and hence the adaptive zone, may be narrow (as with the giant panda, which eats only certain types of bamboo shoots) or broad (as with the brown bear, which is omnivorous).
