The WWF ecoregions are the original Olsen et al., (2001) classification units. If this is what you are after I would recommend using The Nature Conservancy modification to Olsen that deals with some of the known issues with the original classification.
My preference is the Brown et al., (1998) classification and its Rehfeldt et al., (2012) modification but, it is only available for North America. I would highly recommend against using Bailey's (1983) classification. I have consistently found that incorporating geology into the classification convolves many vegetation and biophysical processes.
There is a relevantly new USGS global ecosystem classification (Sayre et al., 2014) that may be what you are after. The methodology is presented in "A New Map of Global Ecological Land Units — An Ecophysiographic Stratification Approach". The data is available from the USGS Global Ecosystems website.
