What is the difference between an endemic species and a native species?

In population and evolutionary biology, an endemic species is a species that is native to a particular region or location and is not found naturally anywhere else. An endemic species is unique to its region and has evolved to adapt to the specific conditions of that region.

A native species, on the other hand, is a species that is naturally found in a particular region or location, but may also be found in other regions or locations. A native species is not unique to its region and may have a wider range than an endemic species.

In general, an endemic species is a subset of a native species. All endemic species are native species, but not all native species are endemic species. The difference between the two lies in their range and uniqueness to a particular region.
