From Oracle FAQ
Fragmentation refers to the scattering of data over a disk caused by successive insert, update and delete operations. This eventually results in slow data access times as the disk needs to do more work to construct a contiguous copy of the data on disk. A database reorganization is sometimes required to fix fragmentation problems.
