Biomes

Biomes
Habitats habitat is the natural place a plant or animal lives. If a habitat changes so that a plant or animal can’t live there anymore and survive, the species of plant or animal either adapts (changes) or moves. Examples of habitats are a cave, a tree stump or a pond. A biome is an area on earth that has a particular kind of climate that supports certain plants and animals. For instance, for a raccoon, a hollow tree might be its habitat. The tree itself is in the forest biome. The forest biome is the place on earth that has the right soil and temperatures for trees to grow.
