The types of land ecosystems with similar climates and organisms are called terrestrial biomes. Ecosystems are separated into biomes because different types of organisms are adapted to different environments. The same biome can be found in different places all over the world. The tundra biome can be found in North America, Europe, and Asia.
Factors like temperature, precipitation, and amount of sunlight help to determine what type of biome an ecosystem is. An area that has almost no rain, warm daytime temperatures, cacti, and cool night time temperatures is classified as desert. Desert is an example of a terrestrial biome.
