1 Biomes Review Chapter 42

2 Which of the following would be considered to be a biotic component of an environment? Fungi Soil Water Fire

3 What is an example of a structural adaptation that might be found in the temperate rainforest biome? Rodents live on the forest floor to retrieve seeds and nuts that fall from the trees Fungi and ferns establish themselves in areas with high moisture, low sunlight and large amounts of waste materials on the forest floor Mosses and lichens attach themselves high in trees to receive both moisture and sunlight Many birds have a long, narrow beak for retrieving insects from tree bark
