The term physiotope refers to the general land formation of an area, one having uniform topographic, lithographic (being of the lithosphere) and other physical features. It is similar to geotope, which refers more specifically to rock and soil. Both are elements of the abiotic matrix of habitat that is present within an ecotope. The physiotope is the overall landform, (including rock and soil), the climate and the hydrology, and the geologic processes that formed the resources together in a certain way at a specific time and place.
