General description of the sites where the species is found (ecosystem, forest, environment or microhabitat). Includes realm (e.g Terrestrial etc) and climatic information (e.g Boreal); also includes requirements and tolerances; horizontal and vertical (altitudinal) distribution. Also includes information referring to territorial extension of the individual or group in terms of its activities (feeding, mating, etc.), associated mostly to vertebrates.
Enumerates geographic entities where the taxon lives. Covers ranges, e.g., a global range, or a narrower one; may be biogeographical, political or other (e.g., managed areas like conservencies); endemism; native or exotic. Does not include altitudinal distribution, which is covered under Habitat.
