Climate refers to the long-term manifestations of weather and some other atmospheric conditions in a particular area. The climatic conditions of an area might change after some years, specifically after 30 to 35 years. Factors like temperature and other human activities can cause the climate of a city to change. Examples of environments are; continental climates, temperate climates, polar climates, dry climates. Biome, on the other hand, is any biological community that is occupied by similar vegetation like forest or desert. A biome can be affected by the climatic conditions and geography of its location.

Examples of biomes are; marine biomes, terrestrial biomes, and freshwater biomes. What determines the climate of an area is the atmospheric temperature and precipitation. What determines a biome is the uniformity of the vegetation. Another difference is that the climatic conditions of an area can influence the pattern of growth of a particular biome, but a biome cannot influence climate in the same manner

Climate is the long- term features of an area's atmosphere; however, a biome is the environment of the terra firma and the conditions of the region's physical structures. A biome is a vast geographical region with plants and animals, which can live in that location. With its specific climate, they have adapted in different ways to the amounts of water, heat, and soil in that area. The biome will be a desert if the climate is hot and dry; however, the biome will be a rainforest, if the climate is hot and wet.

The temperature and other climate factors determine what can survive within an area, creating food for other organisms. Climate is defined as an area's long- term weather patterns. The simplest way to define climate is to look at average temperature and precipitation over time.

Climate refers to the average weather patterns in a region over a long period of time. Biome, on the other hand, is a set of biological communities defined by similar vegetation that is influenced by the climate and geography of a region. There are various types of climate such as dry, temperate, polar, continental, and tropical. Not all countries experience all of the climates as the climate you are experience is based on the region your country is part of.

A tropical country has and will never experience a polar climate and vice versa. Biome also has a classification and they are desert, tundra, marine, freshwater, forest, and grassland biome. Plant and animal species are different depending on the biome they are at. An example is a polar bear will never live and survive in the desert biome as it has thick fur that is not perfect in a very hot and dry place.
