The tropical rain forest has the greatest diversity in plant life than any other biomes which includes vines, orchids, ferns, and a wide variety of trees.
Arctic tundra is a very cold, windy, and treeless biome that’s snow-covered for much of the year. It’s found in the northern hemisphere, encircling the north pole and extending south across parts of Alaska, Canada, Russia, Greenland, Iceland, and Scandinavia, to the coniferous forests of the taiga.
Most of the world’s deserts are located near 30 degrees north latitude and 30 degrees south latitude, where the heated equatorial air begins to descend. The descending air is dense and begins to warm again, evaporating large amounts of water from the land surface. The resulting climate is very dry.
There are eight major terrestrial biomes: tropical wet forests, savannas, subtropical deserts, chaparral, temperate grasslands, temperate forests, boreal forests, and Arctic tundra. The same biome can occur in different geographic locations with similar climates.
The boreal forest is under constant threat from industry. Perhaps the largest threat is industrial logging. Over the last 20 years, 25.4 million acres, an area the size of Kentucky, has been clearcut. These industrial sites also pollute the air and water sources of nearby indigenous communities.
