English term or phrase: ecotone
Definition from A Glossary of Marine Nature Conservation and Fisheries :
a narrow and fairly sharply defined transition zone between two or more communities (Allaby 1998); eg the different plankton communities that occur on opposite sides of fronts.

Example sentence(s):
  • Macroinvertebrate biomass was highest at an intermediate riparian ecotone complexity with an adequate supply of organic matter and incident light. Fish biomass followed the same trend, being lowest in heavily shaded areas and in open channels without riparian vegetation (range: 1-4.5 g m-2), but highest in ecotones of intermediate complexity (range: 1.6-92.8 g m-2). The cascading effect of invertebrate density depletion, which was inversely related to fish biomass, was observed seasonally. Wiley InterScience
  • The complexity and biological importance of riparian ecotones depend on the extent to which the system is self-regulating, which depends in turn on geology, physiography, climate, vegetation, human activity and the age of the system. Fish and riparian ecotones – a hypothesis
  • A common example of ecotones is estuaries—the transitional area between rivers and the oceans. The variety of species found in an estuary is much higher than in the river or in the shallow sea-water. BASICS OF ECOLOGY & LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Definition from مهار بیابان زدایی:
منطقه‌ی گذرگاهی بین آب و خشکی

Example sentence(s):
  • جایگاه استقرار آنها را اصطلاحاً، منطقه‌ی گذرگاهی (بین آب و خشکی) گفته و از همین رو، نوعی کناربوم یا Ecotone به حساب می‌آیند. این زیستگاه‌ها، یکی از مناسب‌ترین مکان‌های استقرار حیات وحش، به ویژه پرندگان و آبزیان مهم جهان و به خصوص گونه‌های درحال انقراض بوده و از همین‌رو، از اهمیت راهبردی فراوانی برخوردارند. - مهار بیابان زدایی

  • تلاب ها به دلیل کناربوم بودن، در درون خود از از تنوع فراوان زیستگاهی برخوردارند. - مهار بیابان زدایی
