Science Help Needed
I’ve been spending hours over the past week pouring over national geographic articles and wikipedia pages on biomes, ecosystems, and geography for worldbuilding, but with very little success.
Specifically, I need help figuring out what climates and biomes would occur in relation to the ones around it. Questions like “what sort of forests would occur near mountains,” “do grasslands appear near forests or is there some sort of transition area,” “how would a plateau affect the nearby ecosystems,” etc.
If anyone is a environmental science nerd, expert, or even simply took a class on it recently and would be able to help me out, I could really use a hand here. It took me ages to get just the mountains, rivers, and coastlines to make geologic sense, and at this point, my brain is starting to hurt. I’m a history/anthropology nerd; I can tell you how the environment affects the people and civilizations all day long, but how the environment would have actually developed? Not so much.
