refugia

refugia Small isolated areas where extensive changes, most typically due to changing climate, have not occurred. Plants and animals formerly characteristic of the region in general now find a refuge from the new unfavourable conditions in these areas. An example might be a mountain summit projecting above a glaciated lowland region. See also RELICT.
