1 Biomes Biology Capital H. S.

2 Limiting Factors Prevent population from reaching biotic potential Types –Density dependent –Density independent

3 Limiting Factors Density dependent Effect becomes more intense with increased density Examples –Parasites & diseases –Competition for resources –Toxic effect of waste products –Predation

4 Limiting Factors Density independent Occur independently of density Examples: –Natural disasters –Climate extremes

5 Biomes Large group of ecosystems that share the same type of climax community. Based on climate: –Light –Water –Temperature

6 Types of Biomes Terrestrial (land) Aquatic (water)

7 %20Tropical%20rainforest2%201_b.jpg Which Biome is it?

8 Tropical Rainforest Tall trees High temperature Heavy rainfall

9 Which Biome is it?

10 Desert Cactus/succulents Hot days, cold nights Hot summers Little rain

11 Which Biome is it?

12 Which Biome is it? Savannas –Tropical –Scattered trees –High temperature –Less rainfall than tropical rain forest

13 Grasslands Temperate –Grasses –Seasonal droughts –Occasional fires –Lower temperature & less rainfall than savannas

14 Which Biome is it? mDCmuwkKKMJ:&tbnh=87&tbnw=116&hl=en&start=1&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddeciduous%2Bforest%26svnum%3D10%2 6hl%3Den%26lr%3D

15 Temperate Deciduous Forest Deciduous trees Oak, maple Warm summers Cold winters Moderate rainfall

16 Which Biome is it?

17 Taiga Coniferous forests Pines & firs Cold winters Warm to cool summers Heavy snowfall Moderate rainfall

18 Which Biome is it?

19 Tundra Grasses & sedges Very cold winters Permafrost High winds Little rain

20 Which Biome is it?

21 Marine Biome Adaptations to: –Light –Temperature –Pressure –Salt –Tides

22 Which Biome is it?

23 Freshwater Biome Lakes, ponds, rivers, etc. Adaptations to: –Light –Temperature –Moving water

24 Which Biome is it?

25 Estuary Where the river meets the sea Most productive biome Adaptations to: –Fluctuating salt levels –Tidal influence
