really there is no difference the words biomes and ecosystems are basically used interchangeably. If you dont believe me visit the following link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biome you'll find the answer in the first two lines.

A biome is a large ecosystem, such as the Amazon rain forest or the Sahara desert, which are referred to as biomes.
