Recall that a biome, also called a biotic community is the largest natural community of different organisms interacting and living in the same environment.
Now let’s take a look at the desert and swamp forest.
Deserts are often considered to be dry land or arid land or a land with very little water. The desert environment is usually very hot; with very little or no rainfall.
An environment may be defined as all external factors, internal factors, living factors and non-living factors that affect an organism.
The heat, air, water, food, objects around us, animals around us, people around us, plants and so on; all constitutes or make up our environment.
The living factors in an environment are sometimes referred to as the biotic factors or component while the non living factors are referred to as the abiotic factors or component.
Deserts can be classified into 2 types. They are:
The hot deserts are located on the western coasts of continents within latitudes 15o North and 30o South of the equator.
Cold deserts are found in the interior of continents around 45o North and 60o south of the equator.
Swamp forests are found in the tropics, along the coastal regions all around the world. In Africa, they are present in the river mouths in South, West and East Africa respectively.
A swamp can simply be regarded as a wetland dominated by woody trees and a variety of animals.

NOTABLE POINTS IN Biology
During strenuous exercises like sprinting or 🏃 running, your body may actually work in the shortage of oxygen. During this time, your body owes oxygen (called oxygen debt) and it must be replenished or repayed after the exercise is stopped. This is why you breathe excess of oxygen after you stopped the exercise.
This is the concept of anaerobic respiration
A food Chain is a diagram that shows the relationship between plants and animals within a habitat on the basis of how they rely on each other for food.
Note: Habitat is a place where an organism live. It is of three types:
