Sympatry, is a term from ecology and biogeography that constitutes the same or significantly overlapping distributions of different sets of organisms. We call two species sympatric if they inhabit the same geological area. Two animals living ins the same forest are sympatric, for instance. Sympatry is the opposite of allopatry.
