A biome is a very large ecological area, with plants and animals that are adapted to the environmental conditions there. Biomes are usually defined by physical characteristics—such as climate, geology, or vegetation—rather than by the animals that live there. Plants and animals within the biome have all evolved special adaptations that make it possible for them to live in that area.
The World’s Biomes series provides information on five of the most important biomes in the world today: deserts, grasslands, oceans, rainforests, and wetlands. A variety of useful features supplement the texts, including glossary terms, sources for further information, links to educational videos, and ideas for projects and reports.
