Aquatic Ecosystems (aka Aquatic Biomes)



A biome can be defined as a large region characterized by a specific kind of climate and certain kinds of plant and animal communities.  All of Earth's major terrestrial biomes can be grouped via latitude into tropical, temperate, and high-latitude biomes, but what about the diverse regions of world's bodies of water?  

The Earth's bodies of water are called aquatic ecosystems (aka aquatic biomes).  These vital ecosystems can be organized into freshwater ecosystems, wetlands, estuaries, and marine ecosystems, all of which play a crucial role on both terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
