I am new to Environmental Science and I am just seeking a quick definition of the term "Environmental Gradient". Thankyou to anyone who can help.

A "gradient" suggests a change or fluctuation in something so an environmental gradient would mean the changes in the conditions within an environment...these are things like the climate differences between biomes and such.
