Land associated with farms including fields, pastures, barns, and hedgerows.
Deserts are locations where low (<30cm per year) rainfall results in a highly arid environment containing few plants and animals. Although vegetation is usually sparse, spectacular blooms can occur after adequate rainfall. Deserts can be warm or cold and may be sandy or icey.
Forest biomes are dominated by trees but seasonality and rainfall can vary dramatically.
Deciduous Forest: Forest dominated by deciduous trees that shed their leaves during one season of the year. Often associated with temperate locations but tropical forests also exist.
Rainforest: Can be temperate or tropical, all dominated by trees forming a closed canopy meaning little sunlight reaches the forest floor. Typically lots of rain but dependent on season.
Scrub forest: These forests develop in locations where a dry season occurs. As a result of this, most trees are stunted and shrub-like. Most other vegetation is also smaller than elsewhere on the globe.
Area dominated by grasses. Includes meadows and prairies.
Summits of high mountains covered in low tundra-like vegetation or no vegetation at all.
Regions surrounding the North and South pole characterised by low temperatures. Usually contain large expanses of ice and large snowfalls.
Grassland with scattered trees. Intermediate between grassland and forest.
