A formation is a piece of the floral covering, not a group of species. A habitat group is a group of species, which are subject to similar physical conditions, and frequent like habitats. While the term habitat group has been restricted to a group of species put together by reason of occurrence in like habitats, it might be applied to a different conception, namely, to the aggregate of individuals found within a certain habitat. The latter application of the term would be more natural, but in such case the conception of a habitat group would correspond closely to that of a formation, and the two terms would be synonyms.
