Background – Biomes change horizontally, with increasing distance from the equator, and vertically, with increasing distance above sea level. This can be graphically represented by the way that the treeline drops from very high (16,000 ft above sea level at the equator) to sea level at 70 deg North latitude (Figure in Chapter 11).
1) Determine what controls this change of elevation of treeline. Be specific and detailed with your answer.
2) Use the graph referenced above to determine at what elevation you would expect to find the treeline at the latitude of the NYC Metropolitan area. Be careful when reporting the units of measurement with your answer (e.g., meters vs feet).
