The term biome, a derivative of Greek words bios signifying "life" and -oma suggesting "a mass or collection", refers to a large-scale ecological community. Introduced by ecologist Frederic Clements in the early 20th century, it outlines distinct biological communities shaped by climate, soils, and vegetation. In ecological sciences biomes provide a framework for understanding global patterns of biodiversity and ecosystem dynamics. It is usually associated with regions showing little to no human influence. In my metaphysical investigation biome identifies “the untamed world between sacred and magic, where the essence of life is safeguarded by silence, where the outer and the inner world coincide.”
