An ecosystem is the community (all living species in a geographical area) as well as the physical environment that surrounds it. Biomes are collections of ecosystems that have similar characteristics, such biotic and abiotic factors.

For example, the ecosystems of northern Canada and Russia have similar plant and animal life, temperature, and amount of sunlight. They combine to make up the taiga (or coniferous) biome.
