The surrounding where living organisms survive is known as habitat. The organisms depend on their habitat for their food, water, air, shelter and other needs. Habitat means a dwelling place (a home). We all are surrounded by plants, trees, animals, birds, microbes, and other living and non-living things based on specific parameters. Scientists were able to differentiate between living and non-living things. The Living Organisms — Characteristics and Habitats will help students grasp topics including surroundings that organisms live in, habitat and adaptation, different types of habitats and characteristics of living organisms.
