Textbook Problem

Biome distribution depends on ______.

  1. a. climate
  2. b. elevation
  3. c. soils
  4. d. all of the above

Summary Introduction

Introduction: Biomes are large, ecological areas. It is a large community of plants and animals that are present in particular regions.


Reason for the correct answer:

Climate is an important non-living factor that influences the biome. The climate determines the growing condition of an area that, in turn, determines the type of plants that can grow in that particular area. Soil also encourages the biome distribution. Topsoil is the topmost soil layer that contains organic substance and nutrients. Thus, both the climate and soil affect the primary production among biomes. Elevation affects the biomes by altering precipitation and temperature.

Option d. is given as “all of the above”, therefore, option d. is correct.

Reasons for the incorrect answers:

Option a. is given as “climate”. Biome distribution depends not only on climate, but also depends on soils and elevation...
