-severe winters, MAT can be < 0 deg C -ppt is low, but evapo- transpiration low -short growing season
Boreal Forest -10-20 m trees evergreen needle and deciduous -second largest biome, on an area basis -fire dominated, but on longer timescale than grassland -more nutrients and carbon stored in soils than plants
What is a climatogram? Summarizes temperature and precipitation averages for a biome/location
Rules for a climatogram Similar scales for all to make them comparable –Temperature on the right axis, precipitation on left –Same units of measurement, convert if necessary Bar graph for monthly precipitation Line graph for monthly temperatures Labelled –Location –Biome type –Axes (name and type of measurement) Handmade or computer generated should be comparable
