Habitat patchwork Ideal conditions required for growth of any particular organism vary over scales of time and space. This occurs because the success of a habitat and associated organisms are dependent on a variety of factors. By protecting several replicates of similar habitats in the system, along an environmental gradient, the likelihood increases that at least one habitat will be healthy in any particular year. The life cycle of lobsters shows that just one species needs many connected habitats to survive and reproduce. diagram,habitat,environmental,gradient,marine,managed,area,MMA,lobster,life,cycle
