Latitude is the angular distance of a place north or south of the Earth's equator. Ecological biomes are the world's major habitats, like deserts, forests and grasslands. The location of a biome is determined by the latitude, temperature, and precipitation.

Why do you think the same type of biome is found at similar latitudes around the world?
13. Slide
60 seconds
The diversity of species increases as you move closer to the equator, due to the increased energy available from the sun. Tropical rainforests are home to the greatest diversity of species, with up to 30 million species living in the Amazon rain forest alone. The tropical and subtropical grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome experiences a dry season during the winter months due to changes in the wind patterns.

Question: What is the relationship between Latitude and Ecological Biomes? Clues: • Latitude is a measurement of how far a location is north or south of the equator. • Ecological biomes are determined by climate, soil type, vegetation, water availability and other factors. • Latitude affects climate, which in turn affects vegetation and other factors that determine the type of biome. In pairs: Select and solve one of the tasks: A. Work in pairs to create a drawing that illustrates the relationship between Latitude and Ecological Biomes. B. Explain your drawing to the class.
