Biome Challenge Imagine that you are a travel agent experienced in the knowledge of a particular biome. Design a travel brochure, from a biologist’s point of view, which would encourage others to visit this destination. Remember, you are paid on commission, so the more people you persuade to visit, the more money you will earn. Be creative! Be Funny! Be Accurate!
