Colonisation is the process in biology by which a species spreads into new areas. The term can be used to describe colonisation on a small scale (i.e. where a species moves into new areas at a particular site, perhaps as a result of a change in conditions) or on a large scale (i.e. where a species expands it range to encompass new areas; here, the term range expansion is often used). The term is generally only used to refer to the spread into new areas by natural means as opposed to introduction by human agency.
