All of the terrestrial ecozones in the world at National Geographic’s Map Machine site:

Terrestrial Ecoregions of the World         

Scientists have mapped 867 land-based ecoregions across the globe.  Instead of being defined by political boundaries, each is distinguished by its shared ecological features, climate, and plant and animal communities.  A clickable map with descriptions of all the ecoregions can be found on the National Geographic site.
