No, a biome is not the same thing as an ecosystem. However, a many similar ecosystems make up a biome. In other words, ecosystems are smaller than biomes and a biome consists of many similar ecosystems.
Biomes are large geographical regions (usually determined by latitude) that contain specific plant and animal species, and have defined ranges of temperature, humidity, precipitation, and other physical properties. Biomes of the world include Arctic and Alpine Tundras, Tropical Savannas, Deserts, Tropical Rainforests, Grasslands, Deciduous Forests, Boreal Forests, and Chaparrals.
Multiple ecosystems can be contained within a biome. Ecosystems are the relationships between living organisms and their physical environments. An ecosystem can be as small as a pond, or as large as a forest.
