Lecture 25. From sea to shining sea: Biomes of North America.

We are fortunate to have so many different biomes right here at home. Here are some websites with good photos and summary information about the different biomes: Ecosystems of Our World (this site has sound recordings playing in the background that are typical of each biome); and for a more focused look at North America try Islands of Wildness (click on the picture of Earth at the bottom of each page to move forward through this site).
