Here it is, the list of all Biomes. When suggesting a biome, please include as many details about it as possible including:
-where it occurs on a planet
-resources it needs
-climate it needs
--precipitation
--temperature
-required topography (if any)
-its biodiversity
-trophic levels for autotrophs
-trophic levels for heterotrophs
-others

SCALE
Scale helps define niches. Use these official descriptors for scale. "largest measurement" means length, width or height measurement. These measurements apply to ALL orgs, autotrophs and hererotrophs. Largest measurement is measured by the skeleton of the org. (this would be wood in plants)


Included are references to the animal knigdom. These are only approximates.

Tiny= 10-20 cm largest measurement (up to the size of a rat)

Small= 21-100 cm largest measurement (up to the size of a big dog [based on my yellow lab])

Midsize=101-300 cm largest measurement (up to the size of an adult male polar bear)

Midlarge= 301-700 cm largest measurement (up to the size of a killer whale)

large= 701-1500 cm largest measurement (up to the size of a T-rex)

huge=1501-4000 cm largest measurement (tops off at larger than blue whales (25m))

gargantuan=4001+ cm largest measurement (the world's talles tree is to 83 meters tall)


Precipitation Values

In cm per year

Highly Arid=0-1
Arid=2-15
Semiarid=16-25
Midclimate=26-50
Wet=51-100
Very Wet=101+

Also, Mysterious Calligrapher found this to help you with real-world comparisons. Remember that all factors here are on a logarithmic scale.




occurs: Primitive planets that haven't had much time to develop and spread ground cover.
resources: Stone, water, minerals, flora and fauna
elevation: Above sea level.
climate: Warm or cool.
topography: Huge flat stones laid down by glaciers. Varying elevations. The huge gray stones have mossy plants and lichens.
biodiversity: Animals are attracted to these locations so that they may lie on the soft moss and drink water that trickles off of the rocks.
autotroph niches: Tiny to midlarge.
heterotroph niches: tiny, moss-like.
other: Only occurs on young planets that have had large thaws of ice.

A bunch of large rocks with moss on them. And water flowing in between. The rocks can be anywhere from 30 feet high to 7 stories high.

PostSubject: Oceanic Cliffs   Fri Sep 28, 2012 5:08 pm

Earlier I posted a biome called tidal cliffs. It was meant to be on a slightly alien planet. However, I noticed that we do not have a simple biome where land slopes steeply to meet the ocean on a very earth like planet. I consider this an important biome that occurs rather often on earth. Should we add that as another earth like Biome or are we done with those?

Rorsten with another biome

Crater (Barren)
Occurs:Where a metorite hit recently
Topography:huge or small black hole
Climate: depends where hit
animals:nope n/a none
plants nope n/a none
other uninhaitble

i forget all the terms and to lazy to look

Guys, when you're describing a biome like you have been for the last 19 pages, you're not helping. You're thinking of a biome, and giving some information, but the key information isn't there. Instead, you're effectively describing something you WANT to see in the game. My resource idea replaces what I thought of as biomes anyway.

Here's what I originally defined a biome to be.

A list of niches and their dependencies
A script paired with each niche to score how well a given creature fills the niche.

Basically, it was a rigid solution to auto-evo. Resources are the new, dynamic solution, that writes off all of this.

Not all of it. We will still be classifying terrain tiles into groups dependng on set variable ranges, so we will have definitions for different biomes depending on ranges of rainfall, sunlight, temperature, and succession, as well as height.
However, most of the biomes submitted are really just theoretical ecosystem ideas. They're ideas for organisms and their interactions, not the actual framework, since we have almost all fo the frameworks done.

SALT PLAINS
occurs:on places where salt waters are dryed.
climate:from dry to mid-dry
precipiciation:small
temerature:from -0 c to +30 c
topografy:not neceseary
biodiversity:2
authrophors:from small to midsmall
heterophors:from small to gargantun (gargantun size is perfect for slat plains, diplodocuses are also lived at them)
other:perfect to gigantic creatures, but very dry.

Crushed forest
where it occurs on a planet:On any forest where herd of gargantuns passed (They completely ruin forest and it becomes just some small plants and tons of logs and leaves)
resources it needs:Any, just neds to be forest.
climate it needs:any
precipitation:any
temperature:from -20 to +30
required topography:sea level (To be passable for gargantuns)
its biodiversity:2
trophic levels for autotrophs:small
trophic levels for heterotrophs:from small to midsize (gargantus can be seen only when biome is forming:When they are ruining forest and then passing)
others:Garganuns use them as pathway made bi them or somer other gargantuns.
Anyways, the forest will grow again.

Type is barren.

PostSubject: My idea for a biome   Fri Jan 04, 2013 9:30 am

Volcanic belt
occurs: near active volcanoes
climate: very hot and dry
precipitation: little to nil
temperature: very hot
topography: rocky, with some rivers of magma and/or lava, ash makes up some of the soil
biodiversity: surprisingly, some organisms may be able to adapt to this kind of alien environment
autotrophs: small to bush sized, usually have very thick and strong cuticles to protect themselves from water loss
heterotrophs: small to medium sized, maybe even larger ones. most will have a protective layer of silicon to protect themselves from the scorching heat of magma.
other: some microbes are able to cope as well.
Water sources: there is water, but most of it comes from geysers and hot springs nearby, other creatures get the water from the food they eat. some microbes also "enjoy" the hot springs.

P.s. will it be possible for an organism to get nutrients from rocks in this biome? some microbes live in bedrock and feed on rock and nothing else if i'm not mistaken.

Obsidian Biome

occurance:inactive Volcanoes, near volcanoes, shore of a volcanic island (island with volcano)
Resouces:Obsidian, volcano, rock formations, dust and ash collide with wind to create a rather dark scene that causes slight light poulution
Climate: dry
Percipitation: small
Temperature: 90-120'F
Topography: Obsidian shell with either more obsidian, stone, ash, or lava/magma beneath and rock formations
Biodiversity: Very few, but always at least 1
autotrophs: anything here
heterotrophs: any size and must be strong
other: few plants and few microbes
Watersource: Gysers are common on this biome and create temporary streams in thin cracks, ocean or lake touching biome

This is a barren biome

Wait, are you listing a resource, Obsidian?

Or are you describing a biome called Obsidian? I wouldn't call the biome itself Obsidian, just to avoid confusion.

Yes i am and i wanted to post this seperate:

Obsidian (Underwater)

Occurance:Volcanic island (island with volcano) surrounding sea, rivers, or streams
Recources:water, volcano, ash, afew chemicals
Climate: rather dry
Percipitation: rather small
Temperature: 80-100'f
Topography: Water with "Obsidian" biome topoghraphy beneath and small plants thrive here (that can survive chemicals)
Biodiversity:2.5
autotrouphs: small that need to survive the chemicals
heterotrophs: very small-micro that need to survive the chemicals
other: plants that need to use chemicals as a priority to extract nutrients and many diverse viruses thrive here as the top preatetors as shown above

In barren

Is this a new biome or a redo of the last one?

EDIT: Nevermind, but you should edit the name of the first one to something less misleading.

DOUBLE EDIT: Sorry to be such a hassle, but Obsidian Biome is not much better. I meant something like obsidian valley, obsidian canyon, obsidian barrens, obsidian plains, obsidian flats, etc.

What about synthetic biomes? Like if my species was building a site on a planet that was an advanced tech biome, would it still be the biome underneath or a new biome?

Well if it was heavily developed, maybe. (i.e much pollution, many synthetic materials, not much life)

Good, but corals are earth species, so it would be inhabitated with other underwater plants.

So the biome itself would simply be ideal conditions for coral reefs on Earth to form, so something of a similar niche would find it ideal as well?
