what do you mean by endemic species.
An endemic species is one whose habitat is restricted to a particular area. The term could refer to an animal, a plant, a fungus, or even a microorganism. The definition differs from indigenous, or native, species in that the latter, although it occurs naturally in an area, is also found in other areas. Endemic species are often endangered, and particular examples may become a focus point for campaigns to protectbiodiversityin a given environment. Some have become national, or regional, emblems.
