Science 10 Biomes Project "Dude, You Gotta Move" (Harwood)
There are many books that have been put aside for this project. You will find them on the cart located in your lab.
Suggested Websites for Biomes Research:
You can search for specific eco-regions, species, or places using this interactive map from the World Wildlife Foundation.
The World's Biomes
This website was created by biology students at UC Berkely. It is organised in five types: aquatic, deserts, forests, grasslands and tundra. Each type is broken down into divisions (eg. grasslands are divided into savannas, temperate grasslands, and steppes. The authors provide information about climate, flora and fauna for each division, as well as a brief description of environmental concerns.
