Summary: Places to Live Arround the World

A Biome is an ecosystem to live. The land biomes are:

Taiga is the world's largest terrestrial biome and covers: in North America most of inland Canada and Alaska.
The summers, while short, are generally warm and humid. In much of the taiga, -20 °C would be a typical winter day temperature and 18 °C an average summer day.

Tundra:Arctic tundra contains areas of stark landscape and is frozen for much of the year. The soil there is frozen from 25–90 cm (9–35 inches) down.

Desert:Many deserts are formed by rain shadows; mountains blocking the path of precipitation to the desert (on the lee side of the mountain). Deserts are often composed of Sand and rocky surfaces

Deciduous Forest:
The temperate deciduous forest has a temperate climate, with summer highs of around 80 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit (27 to 32 degrees Celsius).

Tropical Rainforest: Commonly known as tropical rainforest, are forests which receive high rainfall (more than 2000 mm, or 80 inches, annually) throughout the year.

Some acuatic Biomes are:

Salt water: Plankton: organisms that float in the water.
Nekton: are organisms that swim through the water.
Benthos: bottom dwelling organism.

Fresh water:Plankton: organisms that float in the water.
Nekton: are organisms that swim through the water.
Benthos: bottom dwelling organism.
