What is the difference between a habitat and a niche?

a habitat is where an organism specifically lives-- such as a pond, desert, or forest.
a niche is the organism's role in that habitat-- such as being a decomposer, predator, or a plant that produces its own energy. in terms of a person, your habitat would be your town/city, and your niche would be what you do for a living.

hope that helps!
habitat is a place where the species live

niche is a role they play in the environment - stuff they eat, things that eat them, flowers they pollinate, etc.
