Good word for the netroots to ponder

Ecotone:

A transitional zone between two adjacent ecosystems.

The boundary or transitional zone between adjacent communities containing the characteristic species of each, such as the edge of a woodland next to a field or lawn.

A narrow and fairly sharply defined transition zone between two or more different communities. Such edge communities are typically species-rich.
