The Brazilian Biomes


In other words, a biome is made up of all living beings in a given region, whose vegetation has much similarity and continuity, with a more or less uniform climate, and a common history in its formation.

That is why all their biological diversity is also very similar. Brazil has a huge territorial extension and presents very varied climates and soils. Due to these characteristics, there is a clear diversity of biomes, defined mainly by the type of vegetation cover.
