Use of native plants, including trees, shrubs, groundcover, and grasses which are indigenous to the geographic area of the garden.
Native plants also support populations of native birds, insects, and other animals that they coevolved with, thus promoting a healthy community of organisms.
Associated with how "pristine" an environment is and its function relative to the potential or original state of an ecosystem before human alterations were imposed.
The more an environment and its original processes are altered, the less biological integrity it holds for the community as a whole.
Bacteriophages (phages), potentially the most numerous "organisms" on Earth, are the viruses of bacteria (more generally, of prokaryotes ).
Community ecology studies those characteristics of communities that either are not apparent or which are much less apparent if a community consists of only a single population.
Taxonomic period classification that consists of all life forms that were present on Earth during the Ediacaran Period (c.
This, and the faunas' considerable temporal overlap, makes it unlikely that they represent evolutionary stages or temporally distinct communities.
International peer-reviewed English-language journal published by Springer since 1968 .

Skin flora, also called skin microbiota, refers to microbiota (communities of microorganisms) that reside on the skin, typically human skin.
Process of organisms consuming fungi.
It is not known what effects bacterial mycophagy has on the fungal communities in nature.
Community assembly rules are a set of controversial rules in ecology, first proposed by Jared Diamond.
This is the reason why Diamond's results sparked nearly two decades worth of controversy in the literature, from the late seventies through the late nineties and is considered a turning point in community ecology.
Saint Dominican geographer, naturalist, historian and artist.
He was the first to use the term succession (prior to Steenstrups use) about an ecological phenomenon and probably the first to use the term community (ecology) (societé) for an assemblage of (plant) individuals of different species (prior to Karl Möbius).
The storage effect is a coexistence mechanism proposed in the ecological theory of species coexistence, which tries to explain how such a wide variety of similar species are able to coexist within the same ecological community or guild.
