Glossary for Crocodylus moreletii
- Animal habitation
- The dwelling of an animal or group of similar animals.
- A major class of ecologically similar communities of plants, animals, and other organisms. Biomes are defined based on factors such as plant structures (such as trees, shrubs, and grasses), leaf types (such as broadleaf and needleleaf), plant spacing (forest, woodland, savanna), and other factors like climate. Unlike ecozones, biomes are not defined by genetic, taxonomic, or historical similarities. Biomes are often identified with particular patterns of ecological succession and climax vegetation.
- Brackish water
- Coastal plain
- An area of flat, low-lying land adjacent to a seacoast and separated from the interior by other features.
- An area with a high density of trees. A small forest may be called a wood.
