Learn About Different Biomes
What makes a biome a biome?
A biome is a large-scale ecosystem. Climate, plants, and animals make up biomes. The plants and animals adapt to live in their biome. For instance, you wouldn't find a polar bear in Africa. Or you wouldn't find broad-leaved trees in the deserts of Australia. Biomes usually match up with different climate zones.
There are six different biomes on land. Tropical rain forest, deciduous rain forest, taiga, grassland, desert, and tundra are the six different biomes in on land. The biomes are all based on climate, plants, and animals.
