How many biomes are there?
The exact number of biomes depends on who you ask.
It is common to state that there are five major biomes: deserts, aquatic, forests, grasslands, and tundra. Read more about them here.
NASA lists seven biomes: tundra, shrubland, rainforest, grassland, desert, temperate deciduous forest, and coniferous forests.
Others may say there are nine biomes: marine, freshwater, savanna, grassland, taiga, tundra, desert, temperate forest, and tropical rainforest.
More examples of biome classifications are below.
To conclude, the number of biomes depends on who is classifying them and the number of biomes depends on this.
