Madam, for the 9th question how come the answer as edge species as when I google it for its definition it shows as species nearing to extinction ? Please tell me

yes , me too found two different explanation for edge species : 1) An ecotone is a transition area between two biomes but different patches of the landscape, such as forest and grassland. The ecotone contains not only species common to the communities on both sides; it may also include a number of highly adaptable species that tend to colonize such transitional areas. This can produce an edge effect along the boundary line, with the area displaying a greater than usual diversity of species. The phenomenon of increased variety of plants as well as animals at the community junction is called the "edge effect" and is essentially due to a locally broader range of suitable environmental conditions or ecological niches. 2) Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species have few close relatives and are often extremely distinct in the way they look, live and behave. These unique species are also on the verge of extinction, and if they disappear there will be nothing like them left on the planet. ma'am please clarify ??

edge effect and edge species - explained in shankar ias book on envt and ecology. it states- the no. of species and the population density of some the species is much greater in this zone than either community. this is called edge effect. the organisms which occur primarily or most abundantly in this zone are known as edge species. search with ecotone and edge effect on google.

Yes you are right Ramam Sidhu. When we search it either as edge species and ecotone or edge species and edge effect, we get the correct definition. Thank you. Raman. Arpita, please follow it this way.
