A group of organisms, normally a subdivision of a species, that is adapted to a specific environment.
In evolutionary ecology, an ecotype, sometimes called ecospecies, describes a genetically distinct geographic variety, population or race within species, which is adapted to specific environmental conditions. Typically, ecotypes exhibit phenotypic differences stemming from environmental heterogeneity and are capable of interbreeding with other geographically adjacent ecotypes without loss of fertility or vigor.
