Lisa asks…

What is the ecological niche of seagulls, mussels, seaweed and moss?

For a project, I need to know the ecological niches of these 4 organisms, but I don’t understand what an ecological niche is. Can someone please explain to me the types of niches? Please don’t tell me that it’s a project and to do it on my own, because I have been searching for a really long time now, and can’t seem to find it in my notes or the internet.

New Niche Finder answers:

Basically the niché is the organism’s role in the ecosystem, or how the organism survives and reproduces. Also, the types are in the textbook.

George asks…

How is natural selection related to the concept of niche?

is this correct? im so confused, can someone give me the correct detailed answer.

Niches are restricted because neighboring species with similar ecological characteristics prevent expansion into other niches or even narrow niches down. This continual struggle for existence is an important assumption of natural selection. ??

New Niche Finder answers:

All species use restricted niches, and the niches of all species are segregated, often with much overlap, by the use of different habitats, different geographic areas and seasons, and different food resources, to mention only a few of the many niche dimensions. The causes of niche restriction and segregation are important problems in evolutionary ecology.
Two ecological paradigms deal with the problem. The first paradigm predominates in what may be called “classical” ecology. It assumes that niche space is largely saturated with individuals and species, leading to strong competition. Niches are restricted because “neighbouring” species, i.e., species with similar ecological characteristics such as similar habitats or food preferences, prevent expansion into other niches or even narrow niches down. This continual struggle for existence is an important assumption of natural selection introduced by Darwin as an explanation for evolution.

The other paradigm assumes that niche space is to a large degree vacant, i.e., that there are many vacant niches. It is based on many empirical studies and theoretical investigations especially of Kauffman 1993. Causes of vacant niches may be evolutionary contingencies or brief or long-lasting environmental disturbances.

Both paradigms agree that species are never “universal” in the sense that they occupy all possible niches; they are always specialized, although the degree of specialization varies. For example, there is no universal parasite which infects all host species and microhabitats within or on them. However, the degree of host specificity varies strongly. Thus, Toxoplasma (Protista) infects numerous vertebrates including man, Enterobius vermicularis infects only man.

Mark asks…

What could be a potentially profitable travel “niche” to use for a travel booking website?

Looking for ideas that could be profitable for a web-based travel agency. Looking for travel niches that are most profitable or areas that are currently very underserved (if that even exists!).

New Niche Finder answers:

Well, It is not so much the Niche I would target, but the customer service and something DIFFERENT. Also, it is all about the style of the website, the promotion and the eventually, the NICHE
