2  a biome where the tree growth is hindered by low temperatures and short growing seasons. TUNDRA

3 , is a biome characterized by coniferous forests consisting mostly of pines, spruces and larches.  part of the terrestrial surface of the globe where little rain falls and in which few plants or animals are able to exist. BOREAL FOREST AND DESERT

4  a particular variety of subtropical climatesubtropical climate  ecosystems considered part of the temperate grasslands, savannas, and shrublands biome by ecologists. MEDITERRANEAN AND PRAIRIES

5  Savanna: a grassland ecosystem characterized by the trees being sufficiently widely spaced so that the canopy does not close. Tropical Rainforest: an ecosystem type that occurs roughly within the latitudes 28 degrees north or south of the equator (in the equatorial zone between the Tropic of Cancer and Tropic of Capricorn)




9  is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area, usually in the form of a peak MOUNTAIN

10  elongated lowland between ranges of mountains, hills  often as a river or stream running along the bottom VALLEY

11  an area of relatively level high ground. PLATEAU

12  a deep ravine between cliffs often carved from the landscape by a river CANYON

13  a large area of flat land with few trees. PLAIN

14 Mesa: tableland, an elevated area of land with a flat top and sides that are usually steep cliffs. It takes its name from its characteristic table-top shape. Volcano: an opening, or rupture, in the surface or crust of the Earth or a planetary mass object, which allows hot lava, volcanic ash and gases to escape from the magma chamber below the surface.

15  Cliff: a vertical, or near vertical, rock exposure Butte: a conspicuous isolated hill with steep, often vertical sides and a small, relatively flat top

16  piece of land that is bordered by water on three sides PENINSULA

17  any piece of sub-continental land that is surrounded by water. ISLAND

18  A point or head of land projecting into a body of water.  consisting of the outline of a path of relatively shallow and narrow body of fluid, most commonly the confine of a river, river delta or strait. CAPE AND CHANNEL

19  A narrow channel joining two larger bodies of water.  a landform that is formed at the mouth of a river, where the river flows into an ocean, sea, estuary, lake, or reservoir.

20  Isthmus: a narrow strip of land connecting two larger land areas, usually with water on either side.  River: natural watercourse, usually freshwater, flowing towards an ocean, a lake, a sea, or another river.

21  Glacier: a persistent body of dense ice constantly moving under its own gravity  Bay: a large body of water connected to an ocean or sea formed by an inlet of land due to the surrounding land blocking some waves and often reducing winds.

22  a shallow body of water separated from a larger body of water by barrier islands or reefs. Lake: a body of relatively still water of considerable size, localized in a basin, that is surrounded by land apart from a river, stream, or other form of moving water that serves to feed or drain the lake.

23  Gulf: a large bay that is an arm of an ocean or sea.
