An ecotone is a transition area between two adjacent but different plant communities, such as forest and grassland. It may be narrow or wide, local(the zone between a field and forest) or regional(the transition between forest and grassland)(Smith).It may appear on the ground as a gradual blending of the two communities across a broad area, or it may manifest itself as a sharp boundary line.
