    Apply your knowledge: Review the diagram. Answer the following question based on the diagram and what you understand about the relationship between biomes, latitude and elevation (height above sea level): Why do the biomes vary at different locations on a mountain?
    • A. 

      As elevation increases, climate temperature decreases. Climate becomes colder from the base of the mountain to its peak.

    • B. 

      As temperature decreases the biome climate changes.

    • C. 

      As slope and elevation increase, wind and precipitation increase, causing the climate to change.

    • D. 

      As slope and elevation increase, temperature and precipitation increase, causing climate to change.
