Namehost-associated niche
DescriptionA context for the growth of an organism in which the environment is dominated by another biological organism (the host). This is distinct from collections of organisms living in complex communities on abiotic substrates such as certain biofilms. Types of host-associations (symbiosis) include commensalism (having no effect on the host), mutualism (having benefit for the host) and pathogenesis (causing detriment to the host). Organisms may live in both host-associated and host-independent niches.
