Biomes

 

As geographers study the many ecosystems around the world, many similarities or patterns become evident from one ecosystem to another. This allows scientists to group ecosystems into categories called biomes.

The most commonly accepted biomes that exist on the Earth are Tundra, Desert, Grassland, Tropical Rain Forest, Deciduous Forest, and Coniferous Forest. Though there is some debate among scientists as to exactly how biomes should be classified.
