The Biodiversity of Iboma refers to the presence of life within the Queendom of Iboma. Although the country spans just over 300,000 square kilometers (which is just over 119,000 square miles), the country has a relatively high concentration of biological life. This is in part due to the country lying at the confluence of various ocean currents that carry warm water from the south and cool water from the north. Moreover, the topography of mountains separating various regions of the country, has resulted in the formation of smaller climatic zones in which unique forms of life have emerged. Furthermore, the million-year-long geographic isolation of the country has enabled endemic species to arise. The scope of this article is limited to the terrestrial domain and marine domain controlled by the Queendom of Iboma. Please note that more sections will be added and continuous updates will be made to this article. This article does not strictly adhere to scientific conventions or expected scientific structure since it is created for the benefit of the average person. Organisms of the Kingdoms of Protista and Monera. This article will not seek to resolve disputes on the validity of Kingdoms' phyletic origins, but will take classifications of organisms at face value.

Geographic context

Iboma spans an area of 308,734km² (119,203 miles²). It consists of five islands in descending order of size as follows: Ibomanengwa, Ibonanenni, Viviane, Dadavane and Sungane. It is surrounded clockwise from the north by Tadeschi, Dvalheim, Tiervan, Dvergerland,, and Tretrid. The country was formed through the separation of its landmass from mainland Novaris and it forms part of the Novaris continental shelf, lying in the Southeastern region of Novaris. Because it lies on significant geological faultlines, it has active and dormant volcanoes that shape the landscape and biodiversity of the country. The main islands have flat terrain separated by mountain ranges which feed many rivers and streams that hydrate the urth and deposit volcanic minerals, making the soil incredibly nutritious. Furthermore, the islands have various large bodies of water and permanently waterlogged areas that attract and enable an abundance of living creatures.

Evolutionary history




Although birds are reptiles, their abundance and uniqueness warrants their own section.


This section contains a description of reptiles that are not birds.


Although fish is not a scientific taxonomic clade, it is used for the benefit of the lay-reader to refer to boneless fish, jawless fish, and bony fish. It excludes non-vertebrate marine life. For further clarity, marine mammals are discussed under the mammals section.



Although arthropods span a higher-ranked/larger taxonomic clade than the above sections, this classification is useful for the lay-reader


Technically, extant birds are dinosaurs, but extinct dinosaurs will be discussed in this section with a specific focus on organisms of the clade Sauropoda whose entire families have gone extinct.



The word conifers is used to loosely refer to organisms of the clade Gymnosperma.

Flowering plants

The term flowering plants and variations thereof is used to refer to the organisms of the clade Angiosperma.


The term ferns refers to organisms of the clade Pteridophyta.
