Major Ecosystems – 10

A large relatively distinct terrestrial region characterized by similar climate, soils, plant and animals.


Major Ecosystems– 10

A large relatively distinct terrestrial region characterized by similar climate, soils, plant and animals.

Q: What is a biome?


Major Ecosystems– 20

The biome with the richest soil.


Major Ecosystems– 20

The biome with the richest soil.

Q: What is the grassland?


Major Ecosystems– 30

The process that occurs when the summer sunlight penetrates and warms surface waters, making them less dense. In the summer, cool water remains on the lake bottom seperated from the less dense water above.


Major Ecosystems– 30

The process that occurs when the summer sunlight penetrates and warms surface waters, making them less dense. In the summer, cool water remains on the lake bottom seperated from the less dense water above.
