Biomes are climatically and geographically defined as similar climatic conditions on the Earth, such as communities of plants, animals, and soil organisms and are often referred to as ecosystems.


Two of my favorites are tundras and freshwater biomes.

The tundra are among Earth's coldest, harshest biomes. Tundra ecosystems are treeless regions found in the Arctic and on the tops of mountains, where the climate is cold and windy and rainfall is scant.

Tundra lands are snow-covered for much of the year, until summer brings a burst of wildflowers.

Mountain goats, sheep, marmots, and birds live in mountain, or alpine, tundra and feed on the low-lying plants and insects. Hardy flora like cushion plants survive on these mountain plains by growing in rock depressions where it is warmer and they are sheltered from the wind.


The freshwater biome is described as a fresh water source with little or no salt and it is used as animal habitat and for human survival.
At least 1/5 of the earth water sources are freshwater biomes and they vary from lakes, rivers, streams, creeks, gutters, canals and puddles.

There are literally thousands of living things found here including algae, tadpoles, dragonfly larvae, trout and many wading and fishing birds.
