Biomes are distinguished on the basis of dominant form of vegetation. With an increase in altitude the type of vegetation changes, because temperature decreases gradually.

Hence a change in type of biome could be noticed with an increase in altitude which is similar to a shift in vegetation/biome type from equatorial latitude to polar regions.
