  26. 26. Advantages of terrestrial biomes 7/26/2014 26 Advantages • Clean and eco-friendly energy source. • Products that are used in biomass are easily available. • The material for biomass will surely never run out.
  27. 27. 7/26/2014 27 Disadvantages of terrestrial biomes • Costly sometimes (depending on the substrate). • The clearance of large areas including forests. • Releases methane into the air (lesser than fossil fuels). • Sustainable under certain conditions only. • Consumption of fresh water. • Competition for arable land. • Food-fuel debate.
