why do we find the major land biomes at specific locations on the earth in both the northern and the southern hemispheres?

Variations in climate determine the biomes. These variations are determined by the frequency and direction of winds and ocean currents, along with geographic features, such as mountain ranges.

I hope this helps. If not, ask more specific questions. Thanks for asking.
