Earth’s ecosystems

Scientists have developed a system to map the vegetation, which might help track the progress of climate change in future, researchers said. Sytem used satellite observations of the timing and intensity of activity in large-scale vegetation formations –known as biomes — and how it relates to temperature and soil moisture to classify the world’s vegetation into 24 biome types, Xinhua news agency quoted from a statement as saying. Several other global biome maps existed but the new system was objective and not reliant on expert opinion or correlations between vegetation and climate, statement said.
