  1. Marine biomes

    Woodward, Susan L., 1944 January 20-
    Westport, Conn. : Greenwood Press, 2008.

    The biome - an area of the earth that shares similar geography, climate, animals, and plants - is the concept that forms the backbone for studying the living world. Without a firm understanding of how animals and plants have adapted to a particular region of the earth, students would not have a strong grasp of the fields of ecology and environmental science. "Greenwood Guides to Biomes of the World" provides students with a solid foundation for understanding biomes and how they compare and interact with one another. With the exception of the introductory volume, which provides general background information, each volume focuses on a specific biome or set of biomes on a global scale. The set includes discussions, graphs, charts, and illustrations to give students a more sophisticated understanding of this essential scientific concept. Volumes focus on: tropical rainforests and tropical seasonal rainforests; the major types of temperate forests - boreal forests, broadleaf deciduous, Mediterranean woodland, and scrub; the temperate grasslands and the tropical grasslands; deserts; high altitudes and polar biomes; wetlands, ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams; and, saltwater biomes along coastlines, on the continental shelf, and the open sea.

  2. Terrestrial biomes : geographic distribution, biodiversity, and environmental threats

    New York : Nova Science Publishers, [2016]

    This book provides current research on terrestrial biomes. Chapter One demonstrates the severe conditions of arctic areas that lead to the formation of common characteristics for all complexes of soil microfungi. Chapter Two discusses plant and terrestrial microbial communities in the Alaskan tundra. Chapter Three examines spontaneous stand regeneration and herb layer restoration in post-fire woods 16 years after a forest fire. Chapter Four reviews regularities and features of differentiation and anthropogenic transformation of steppe vegetation. In Chapter Five, the capacity of combination of biomass and native microorganism for fique bagasse from farmers from a region of Colombia named Oriente Antioqueno, was studied with the objective to degrade the tetracolorisoftalonitril active ingredient.
