Previously, we've talked about biological classification, but do you know how scientists classify the different ecosystems of our earth? Biomes, that's how!
This week's article from the Biology site at BellaOnline.com provides an overview of biomes - how they are determined and why their protection is important.
Biomes are major ecological regions within which the biotic (living) communities, both plant and animal, are similar in general characteristics and in their relationship to the abiotic (non-living) physical environment.
After you read the article, please come on by the forums and discuss the subject. The topic is located here:
