For example, areas in the low latitudes are hot and very dry, while in the high latitudes, the climate can be freezing all year. In highland climates, it's cold depending on the climate.

Climate and vegetation can come together to make a biome because the temperature make the vegetation grow or not grow. A biome is a region where plants, animals, and environment are suited for each other. When the climate changes, the animals or plants slowly adapt to the environment so that they can live in it.

A biome is a big area of plant life and animal groups which adapt to a particular environment. The climate and geography of a region determines what type of biome it is. Every biome has many organisms which have adapted to may small differences in the climate. Each organism depends on other living or non live things in its surroundings.

The temperature in the winter is about 10 oC but in the summer, it is 40 oC. it can get so hot there that fires and droughts are...
