biome

a major regional ecological community of organisms usually defined by the botanical habitat in which they occur and determined by the interaction of the substrate, climate, fauna and flora. The term is often limited to denote terrestrial habitats, e.g. tundra, coniferous forest, grassland. Oceans may be considered as a single biome (the marine biome), though sometimes this is subdivided, e.g. coral reef biome. There is no sharp distinction between adjacent biomes.
