A refuge is a concept in biology and ecology which revolves around the escape of an organism from predation.[citation needed] There are many forms of refuge and can include physical or temporal factors. Physical refuges are locations which are inaccessible by predators.

Temporal refuges include times of year that species may shift their breeding to minimize predation from other species.
