The rocky mountain range happens to be apart of many biomes. From my research I have found that the rocky mountain range happens to be apart of the grasslands, desert, and disiduous forest biome. This provides a lot of diversity to this specific mountain range. This also connects to the diversity of the weather in which was talked about above. The two biomes that are the most different happen to be the savanna and the rain forest.

Soil Quality

As I have found while researching there is very poor soil quality in the rocky mountain range. This is a land area that would very difficult to obtain a farm. Seeing that there are few plants that could survive and thrive in this area.
