Word of the day: biome

biome is a collection of plants and animals that have common characteristics for the environment they exist in. They can be found over a range of continents. Biomes are distinct biological communities that have formed in response to a shared physical climate. Biome is a broader term than habitat; any biome can comprise a variety of habitats.

I confess that I had never heard this word until today when I had my weekly video chat with my 10 year old granddaughter. She went back to school a week ago and this is one of the things she learned this week. How come a 10 year old knows more than a 72 year old? It’s called education.
