2 TUNDRA TEMPERATURE Very Cold

3 TUNDRA PRECIPITATION very little

4 TUNDRA LOCATION The Arctic

5 TUNDRA PLANTS Low growing plants, mosses, lichens

6 TUNDRA ANIMALS Caribou Seals Polar Bears Arctic Fox

7 DESERT

8 DESERT TEMPERATURE Hot during the day and cold at night. Why? There is little water vapor (greenhouse gas) to trap the heat in at night.

9 DESERT PRECIPITATION Very little

10 DESERT LOCATION Tropic of Cancer Tropic of Capricorn Rainshadow

11 DESERT PLANTS Succulents: plants that can store water Ex: cactus

12 DESERT ANIMALS

20 GRASSLAND ANIMALS  Coyotes  Eagles  Bobcats  gray wolf  bison  Canada geese

21 RAINFOREST

22 RAINFOREST TEMPERATURE hot and humid

23 RAINFOREST PRECIPITATION Most amount in any biome

24 LOCATION OF THE RAINFOREST Near the Equator

25 RAINFOREST PLANTS Bamboo, coconut trees, vines

26 RAINFOREST ANIMALS Forest elephant, Chimpanzee, Tamarin, Toucan

27 MEDICINE IN THE RAINFOREST ¼ of medicine comes from rainforest plants

28 LAYERS OF THE RAINFOREST o forest floor: completely shaded, poor quality soil, earthworms, fungi o Understory: trunks of canopy trees, shrubs, plants, small trees, high humidity, constant shade o Canopy: 6—130 foot trees, shades below, most animals live- a lot of food o Emergent: foot trees, umbrella shaped canopies, small pointed leaves

30 TEMPERATURE IN THE DECIDUOUS FOREST seasonal

31 PRECIPITATION IN THE DECIDUOUS FOREST Precipitation: inches per year

32 LOCATION OF DECIDUOUS FORESTS Eastern half of North America

33 DECIDUOUS TREES leaves fall off the tree when the temperature is cold (winter)

34 ANIMALS IN THE DECIDUOUS FOREST  deer, squirrels, mice, raccoons, salamanders, snakes, robins, frogs.  Many hibernate during the winter

36 ALPINE FOREST TEMPERATURE Coldest in the world

37 ALPINE FOREST LOCATION high altitudes- just below the snow line of a mountain Himalayan Mountains Andes Mountains Rocky Mountains

38 ALPINE FOREST PRECIPITATION Very dry Similar to the arctic

39 ALPINE FOREST PLANTS small groundcover plants- reproduce slowly, able to grow in sandy, rocky soil (poor soil conditions)

40 ALPINE FOREST ANIMALS warm blooded, hibernate, migrate. Alpaca, Chinchilla, condor, mountain goat, snow leopard
