Ecology - Rules for Living on Earth

Populations, communities, ecosystems, and biospheres are the subject of a video that investigates biomes and reveals that taigas, or boreal forests, are the largest biome, covering 17% of Earth's land surface. Viewers then explore how temperature and water determine the location of biomes before delving into the different types of biomes.
