The Eltus Biomes (エルタス植生, also referred to as Eltus-Plants when only plants are shown) are the ecosystem and the colonies of Eltus species and creatures on planet Tal. It's generally populated by Eltus races. The plants in this ecosystem are referred to simply as "Green Plants" and have chlorophyll, similar to plants on Earth and unlike Talyxian plants.
There is very little Eltus biome on Tal, and what exists is easily eroded by the surrounding Talyxian-Plants. All Eltus race people treasure it, and try to protect it from erosion by Talyxian-Plants. The seeds of green plants are considered as valuable as gold grains, and people sometimes use them in place of high denomination currency, but their high value regularly encourages counterfeiting.
The Judda, as a concept, exists in part because of, and to describe, the exotic properties of the Eltus biome. As a result, among the Eltus races on Tal, the color green (and green objects and people) are revered as being pure and of great value.
The largest Eltus regions to exist on Tal are the Lyvank Mountains and Gold Ring. In the Lyvank Mountains, some areas of alpine plants exist. Gold Ring hosts the "Eltus-Plant gardens" in its central, most easily defensible area. Both are carefully nurtured and supported by Eltus people. During years 16 to 28 according to Rain-Calendar, Eastern people worked furiously to protect the Lyvank Mountains. See Also: Lyvank Mountains
Eltus plants prefer salt unlike plants native to the Talyxian biome, and Eltus biome algae and seaweed are actively cultivated in coastal places. Any ingredients found naturally in the Eltus biome are considered the highest grade foods for Eltus people. Among other things, algae, seaweed, and fish are farmed in Salt Lake ColVilous.
Gold Ring resident Sergals gathering a kind of Eltus seaweed that grows on the coast of Salt Lake ColVilous. This seaweed will get shriveled and shrunk when it is heated, it spoils the flavor. Due to this, they usually are eaten as raw as a condition that they have just been harvested. It has a popping texture, and is eaten in various ways such as pairing it with fish, adding it to soup, or making it into a salad. Generally, there is a restriction in the gathering of edible Eltus plants and animals as they are very rare and precious existence. However, seaweed that the artwork displays is an exception to that because it is farmed on a large scale in some areas, and can proliferate rapidly.
