14 Which biome is characterized by long, cold winters. Plants include cone bearing trees such as pine, fir, and spruce.

15 Which biome is characterized by an extensive canopy that allows little light to penetrate to the ground and by the presence of epiphytes? (Activity: Aquatic Biomes) Which biome is characterized by an extensive canopy that allows little light to penetrate to the ground and by the presence of epiphytes? a. temperate grassland b. coniferous forest c. tropical rain forest d. desert e. tundra c. tropical rain forest

16 Which biome has plants that include cacti, deeply rooted shrubs and herbs that are able to grow quickly during infrequent moist periods. Adaptations for plants in this biome include heat and desiccation tolerance, water storage, and reduced leaf surface area. Physical defenses such as spines, and chemical defenses such as toxins in leaves are also common. Many of the plants exhibit C4 or CAM photosynthesis. a. temperate grassland b. coniferous forest c. tropical rain forest d. desert e. tundra d. desert

17 Which of these is the largest terrestrial biome on Earth? a. tundra b. coniferous forest c. temperate broadleaf forest d. temperate grassland e. desert b. coniferous forest

18 Which biome has moderate climate with four distinct seasons. The dominant plants are deciduous trees, which drop their leaves before winter. Many animals hibernate in the winter and bird species migrate to warmer climates. a. temperate grassland b. coniferous forest c. tropical rain forest d. temperate deciduous forest e. tundra d. temperate deciduous forest

19 Desert owls are inactive during the day and active at night. This describes an adaptation to which biome? a. taiga b. tropical forest c. tundra d. coniferous forest e. desert

20 The _____ biome is the largest of Earth's biomes. a.Marine b.Grassland c.Freshwater d.Rain forest e.desert a. Marine

21 Which one of the following biomes is dominated by gymnosperm or conifer trees (pines, firs, spruces)? a. taiga b. tundra c. desert d. broadleaf forest e. tropical rain forest a. taiga

23 Which biome is characterized by high winds and cold temperatures. Winters are long and cold and summers are short and cool. The dominant vegetation is herbaceous and includes plants such as lichens, mosses and grasses which do not grow tall due to the high winds and permafrost. Mammals found in this biome include caribou, reindeer, bears, wolves and foxes. a. temperate grassland b. coniferous forest c. tropical rain forest d. desert e. tundra

24 Which biome is warm year round, but has more seasonal variation than tropical rain forest. Dominant plant species are grasses with scattered trees, which are adapted to seasonal droughts and fires. Large herbivore mammals such as wildebeests and zebras and their predators are common inhabitants. During seasonal droughts, grazing animals must migrate to other parts of this biome with more food and scattered watering holes. a. temperate grassland b. coniferous forest c. savanna d. desert e. tundra c. savanna

26 Why are many of the world's deserts located at latitudes of between 30° north and 30° south? a. Earth is tilted on its axis. b. The greatest amount of solar energy per unit area is absorbed by Earth between 30° north latitude and 30° south latitude. c. Dry air, originating at the equator, descends toward Earth's surface between 30° north latitude and 30° south latitude. d. Warm air rises between 30° north latitude and 30° south latitude and spreads toward the poles and the equator. e. Earth is a rotating sphere. c.
