A visual journey of adventure and wonder. Just kidding BIOMES YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT REALLY
This is the biome that we live in here in Squamish It is the biome with the most biomass It is the rarest rainforest in the world It is the biome with the second most amount of rain (the tropical rain forest gets the most) TEMPERATE RAINFOREST
Because of the temperate climate (not too hot, not too cold) and all the moisture coming in off the ocean, the Temperate Rainforest has a long growing season, resulting in many large trees Example: Douglas Firs can grow over 200 feet tall!
Tropical Rainforest are located near the equator – the warm air evaporates water off of the ocean and when it condenses it falls on the land Rainforest get the most amount of rain in the world (approx. 400 cm/ year) Rainforest have the greatest amount of biodiversity out of all the biomes TROPICAL RAINFOREST
Trees grow in many layers, forming a dense canopy, and absorbing most of the sunlight. Plants below are adapted to grow in the shade Many vines climb tree trunks into the canopy where there is more light Plants have narrow tips that allow the rain to run off quickly, reducing weight on the branches
BOREAL FOREST Much of Canada’s forest belong to the Boreal Forest biome
The Boreal forest has a short summer growing season (~ 50 days long) There are many marshes, shallow lakes and wetlands that hold vast amounts of water; the soil is also very wet
Boreal forests receive about 30-85cm annually, mostly as snow. The temperatures are below freezing for half of the year, and often drop to -40°C Trees are mainly coniferous (cone-bearing), and are adapted to surviving by having small, pointed, waxy needles that resist water loss and allow snow to slide off easily.
