In relation to Realized Niche (This series of work explores the domains between the occupation of space and the competition that exists within an ecological setting. Through the title of Realized Niche, I am researching this fundamental niche and exploring how human activity is changing the environments that organisms occupy, further exploring the spaces where they are now capable of most adaptable to. I questions how this manipulation may evolve to effect these new ecological roles and settings.)
