Exercise One: Drawing in the biomes using latitude and Altitude

Using your knowledge off biomes create a map showing the location of the major biomes and eco-regions on the continent of Valimor.(see figure 1 below). Create a colored key to identify each biome.

Take in to consideration how the other Earth (Arda) systems will have an impact on the location of your biome. Factors you should take into consideration are latitude, precipitation, altitude, temperature, mountain chains, rain shadow, wind direction etc.
