Which is an abiotic factor that would affect the ability of a species of tree to survive in a particular habitat?
availability of minerals in the soil
habitat (which is Latin for "it inhabits") is an ecological or environmental area that is inhabited by a particular species. It is the natural environment in which an organism lives, or the physical environment that surrounds (influences and is utilized by) a species population http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Habitat
All organisms are adapted to their environment to a greater or lesser extent. If the abiotic and biotic factors within a habitat are capable of supporting a particular species in one geographic area, then one might assume that the same species would be found in a similar habitat in a similar geographic area, e.g. in Africa and South America. This is not the case. Plant and animal species are discontinuously distributed throughout the world
There is no particular species with the name. Some use it as part of their description, such as the "pennant coralfish" (Heniochus acuminatus). Named for their habitat, or for their ability to blend in with coral, the term "coral fish" is applied to several species such as the triggerfish, angelfish, damselfish, tang, and goby.
A habitat is where something lives to survive. An animal habitat is where an animal lives to survive. Even you live in a habitat the city or civilization is where we eat sleep reproduce and survive. the area where an organism lives, including the biotic and abiotic factors that affect the organism. a habitat is where species lives. for example the polar bear live in Antarctica, a cold, ice, place not in a jungle
A species that "belongs" in a particular area, as you put it, is called a native species. I am sure that animals who find themselves in a non-natural habitat are called a non-native species, an invasive species, or introduced species. The introduction of some species into new environments can have devastating results - this is because the invasive species can eradicate necessary native species that are necessary to support a healthy ecosystem.
