Animals and plants that have small ranges are called endemics. Small is a relative term. Ultimately, every taxon can be called endemic in an area that includes its entire range. We use the term endemic for any taxonomic category entirely restricted to a given geographical or biogeographical unit such as a locality, island, region, mountain range, country, grid cell etc.
