Marion McClary notes that "Habitat selection is the process or behavior that an animal uses to select or choose a habitat in which to live. To live in a habitat an animal must first have access to the habitat. Once the animal has access to the habitat it must be able to tolerate the conditions of the habitat and find the resources that it needs to survive in that habitat."
Oh, let's not forget that humankind is invloved in habitat selection in a variety of ways.
