Examples of clustered distribution
Species distribution modes are the different ways in which a biological taxon may be spatially arranged in its biogeographic range. Species distribution should not be confused with dispersal, which is the movement of individuals from their area of origin or centers of high density to other locations. The area where a species is found can be represented by a species distribution map. Chorology is the discipline in charge of establishing the distribution of species, while biogeography is that which studies the climatic, geological, geographical or historical factors that determine such distribution, the communities, their dynamics, and evolution. The distribution of species in groups, groups of species, or groups of species in groups, or groups of species in groups, or groups of species in groups, or groups of species in groups, or groups of species in groups, or groups of species.
The distribution of species in groups, uniform or random, depends on different abiotic and biotic factors. Any non-living chemical or physical factor in the environment is considered an abiotic factor. There are three main types of abiotic factors: climatic factors consist of sunlight, atmosphere, humidity, temperature, and salinity; edaphic factors are abiotic factors with respect to the soil, such as soil roughness, local geology, soil pH, and aeration; and social factors include land use and water availability. An example of the effects of abiotic factors on species distribution can be seen in drier areas, where most individuals of a species will gather around water sources in a clustered distribution.

Distribution patterns examples
Multicellular or multicellular organisms – such as plants, animals and brown algae – arise from a single cell which multiplies to generate an organism. The cells of multicellular organisms are differentiated to perform specialized functions and reproduce by mitosis and meiosis. To form a multicellular organism, these cells need to identify and join with other cells. Multicellular organisms have permanent cellular unions, that is, cells have lost their capacity to live alone, they require association, but this must occur in such a way that it leads to different cell types that generate cellular organization in tissues, organs and systems, thus forming a complete organism. Multicellular organisms are the result of the union of unicellular individuals through the formation of colonies, filaments or aggregation. Multicellularity has evolved independently in Volvox and some flagellated green algae. Multicellularity has evolved independently in Volvox and some flagellated green algae.[3
Species found within its natural or original (historical or current) range according to its natural dispersal potential. The species is part of the natural biotic communities of the area. For example, ahuehuetes (Taxodium mucronatum) are native to Mexico. Native species have evolutionary and ecological relationships with other species with which they have shared their history. They are well adapted to local conditions.
Species groups with less dispersal capacity, such as some insects, amphibians and reptiles, have more species with restricted distribution. Endemic species are fragile to disturbance as their entire range can be altered.
Species introduced outside their original range. Many of the species of ornamental plants and domestic animals are exotic species from other continents. The jacaranda (Jacaranda mimosaefolia) and bougainvillea (Bougainvillea spp) from South America, dogs (Canis lupus familiaris) and cats (Felis catus) from Asia are examples of exotic species.
