ecotype

ecotype A locally adapted population of a widespread species. Such populations show minor changes of morphology and/or physiology, which are related to habitat and are genetically induced. Nevertheless they can still reproduce with other ecotypes of the same species. Heavy-metal-tolerant ecotypes of common grasses such as Agrostis tenuis are an example.
