According to the wiki, it's Tundra, Taiga, and Grasslands (which I'm pretty sure is sourced from SOPomo's SOSI AMA).
It says Deciduous Forests, not Grasslands.

At the time I wrote that (September) the most recent available source (the SOSI draft rules) showed Grasslands as being one of the biomes. This was changed sometime between SOSI, in mid-July, and the printing of the rules, in late August, to Deciduous Forests.

It does, but it used to be Grasslands.

Does anyone have a good idea of how hard the div c computation aspect will be? Ex. Which formulas should we know? Regionals next week will be the first div c competition I have ever gone to and needless to say, Im terrified.

Definitely Rule of 70/72, Exponential/Logistic Growth formulas, probably Shannon-Wiener Diversity Index.

I'm a bit late with this, I'm sure, but I think Shannon-Wiener is Nationals-only, according to the rules.
