An organism's habitat refers to an ecological or environmental area inhabited by particular species of plants, animals, fungi, etc. It refers to an organism's natural environment. The term--environment refers to the biotic(living) and abiotic(non-living) factors in the surroundings of a population of organisms. Life has to adapt to specific environmental conditions. These include the amount of water, available food, sunlight duration, temperature, type of soil, etc. Life is dependent on these factors in the environment and life can also affect the environment which it lives in at the same time. Therefore, the environment is not static, but ever-changing.

Habitat includes all factors which constitute the total environment where human beings live...
Environment includes all living and non living things that exist on this earth...
Environment is vast AND habitat is a part of it.
