What are Biomes?
Biomes are large geographic regions in many locations with similar kinds
of communities and climates. Climates are one of the most important factors
that determine the kind of organisms in a biome.Certain plants need more
precipitation than others and some need less in order to survive.There
are two water biomes called freshwater and saltwater. There are also six
land biomes called tundra, taiga, temperate deciduous forest, tropical
rain forest, grassland, and dessert. All of which you will learn about
on this website. There are certain kinds of animals that live in a biome.
This is determined by what kind of plants are found there. For example,
bison that live in the grassland could not live in any other biome because
their would not be enough grass.The biomes change with latitude. The closer
to the Equator the the warmer, and the farther away the cooler.
