- Biomass - The weight of living organisms.
- Biomass is the actual mass of living material in a natural system.
- A biome is a distinct ecological community of plants and animals living together in a particular climate.
- A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a large region as tundra or steppe s.
- A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a large region as tundra or steppes.
- A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a vast region, such as tundra or steppe s.
- A biome is a homogeneous ecological formation that exists over a vast region, such as tundra or steppes.
- Biomes - A grouping of all the ecosystems of a similar type, such as grasslands, tropical forests, etc.
- Biomes - a major terrestrial climax community.
- Biomes are categorized by their dominant plants which also indicate types of communities and ecosystems.
- Biomes are classified in various ways.
- Biomes are collections of ecosystems with similar organisms and environments and, therefore, similar ecological properties.
- A biosphere is a region where life can exist.
- Biosphere - All the living communities of the world.
- Biosphere - The area on and around the earth where life exists.
- Biosphere - The portion of Earth and its atmosphere that can support life.
- Biosphere - the part of the Earth and its atmosphere in which living things exist.
- A biotope is an area of uniform environmental (physical) conditions providing habitat(s) for a specific assemblage of plants and animals.
- A biotope is an environmentally uniform region characterized by a particular set of abiotic ecological factors.
- Biotope: an environmentally uniform area.
- Books are not included.
- Carbon Cycle: The circulation of carbon through ecosystems.
- Carbon Cycle: the passage and recycling of carbon through the plantary biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere.
- Carbon cycle - The sequence of events by which carbon and oxygen move within the ecosystem.
- Carbon cycle is the process of removal and uptake of carbon on a global scale.
- The carbon cycle was shown in the first picture on this page, and more of it will be discussed in the section on global problems and global warming.
