Native German speakers: Does any of you can tell me the difference between "Gebiet" "Fläche" and "Bereich" ? (if there is any)

As you realize, they are similar, but let me try to help differentiate: Gebiet -> region/territory, Fläche -> (surface) area, Bereich -> realm/domain. "Gebiet" and "Bereich" are especially similar since they can describe geographical areas as well as fields of research or general topics.
