How do climate and landforms determine the characteristics of a biome?
Climate and landforms are the two factors that determine what characteristics a biome has. Climate plays in important role for the temperature of a place. [ Is it hot in the summer and cold in the winter? Mild year-round? The weather and precipitation affect what grows in a place, such as sparse shrubs in the Alpine Tundra or lush trees in the Rain forest. Landforms also effect what grows in an
area. Rocky hills won't support Mediterranean biomes, which have a large plant and life diversity. Alpine Tundra or Boreal Forests are more suited for these rocky areas. The landforms of mountains may affect the climate. The rain shadow effect from mountains creates a temperate forest on one side and grassland on the other! The diversity of biomes, even on the same content, is also due to landforms. To create a wide diversity of biomes, climate and landforms work together. Climate determines the season's temperature and growth. Landforms stabilize the plants and sometimes the precipitation. With a wide field of many biome, landforms and climate are imperative to determine the characteristics of a biome. Read more: ]
