Student’s Name Instructor Course Date Biomes of the World Introduction A biome refers to a geographical area dominated by a major community of plants and animals. Every biome has a unique type of climate vegetation species and animal life. The amount of light energy water the composition of the soil availability of nutrients and temperature range often determine the quantity size and variety of plants and animals surviving in each biome. For example terrestrial biomes are classified according to the dominant plant life while aquatic biomes are categorized according to their physical features. This paper will look at the major biomes of the earth with emphasis on terrestrial and aquatic biomes. Terrestrial biomes are often distinguished by the type of dominant vegetation which is dependent on rainfall and temperature. plankton. Additionally coral reefs found in shallow waters are an important part of the marine biomes. Corals consist of both animal polyp tissues and algae. Because beach waters are poor in nutritional content the corals acquire nutrients through algae using photosynthesis. They can also do so by extending their tentacles to receive plankton from the water. The fauna found in this community includes invertebrates microorganisms octopuses fishes and sea urchins. Similarly there are areas where freshwater streams merge with ocean waters. These estuarine zones create unique ecosystems with different salt concentrations. Seaweeds mangrove trees and algae are found here while oysters crabs and worms dominate the animal species. Conclusion Biomes are an important part of the ecosystem as plant and animal life depends on them for survival. Work Cited https://youtu.be/iIQS8kb1wg4 [...]
