This article is about an older version of DF.

Biome tokens are used to indicate environments for creatures and trees.

All objects that use biome tokens can take multiple entries, so they can be found in many different locations.

The BIOME_ANY_LAND token can only be used with creatures, while BIOME_ANY_TEMPERATE_BROADLEAF and BIOME_ANY_TROPICAL_BROADLEAF can only be used with trees.
