Mesic habitat

What is Mesic Habitat?
Based on water availability in habitat, we can divide the habitat into  Xeric habitat,  Mesic habitat and hydric habitat.

A Mesic habitat is well balanced with moisture. the moisture availability is not so high as in Hydric and not so less as in Xeric. Compared to a dry habitat, a mesic habitat is more moist. 

Examples of Mesic Habitats are, a temperate hardwood forest, or dry-mesic prairie. 

All Xeric and Hydric habitats try to attain the Mesic Habitat Vegetation or structure in nature.
