1. The sun affects how the winds blow and the amount of rainfall various regions receive.
2. Topography affects by the presence of mountains, when air blows up andover a mountain range, it rises and cools.
3. Temperature and precipitation. (Maybe animals)
4. Tundra, Taiga, Temperate deciduous forests, Tropical forests, Scrublands, Grasslands,Deserts.
5. At the base tundra, then coniferous forest, then temperate deciduous forest, then tropical forest, then deciduous forest, then montage coniferous forest, then alpine tundra, andat the top ice. I would expect it to see it like that because biomes change with altitude just as they do with latitude and vegetation is partly determined by temperature. Precipitation also plays asignificant role.
6. Each type of biome is different, so one biome has certain average climate and the climate affects the vegetation and animal life. The climate is mostly defined byaltitude and latitude.
7. Freshwater and saltwater.
8. Logographic and Atrophic, Atrophic can be affected by stratification. The life zones of a lake are: Littoral, Benthic, Limonitic,and Profoundly Zone.
9. The Estuaries affect the biodiversity of the ocean. The estuary is a partially enclosed body of water where fresh water and salt water meet and mix.
10. TheGulf Stream and the Humboldt Current. The Gulf Stream brings tropical Caribbean water to the east coast of North America and the higher latitudes of Western Europe. Without the Gulf Stream, GreatBritain, Which has a relatively warm temperature, would be as cold as Greenland. The Humboldt Current carries phosphorus-rich cold water northward along the west coast of South America.
11. Itstarts with Neurotic Province and Ocean Province, then epipelagic zone (120m), mesopelagic zone (1,200m), bathypelagic zone (3,000m), abyssal zone (4,000m), and abyssal plain. Hydrothermal vents: Hot...
