Climate and the distribution of life on earth [Principles of evolution, ecology and behavior]
Stearns, Stephen C.
In this lecture Professor Stephen C. Stearns analyzes the physical aspects of the biomes on Earth. Temperature, water, latitude, and altitude all come into play. Regions with similar levels of these climatic features tend to have similar life-forms living there. These same climatic features, can also affect weather patterns, which in turn affect life by altering habitats and ecosystems. On a large enough scale, such as El Niño, these weather patterns can affect life all over the earthEducação Superior::Ciências Biológicas::Biologia GeralEducação Superior::Ciências Biológicas::Ecologia
