Is Life uniformly distributed? Is life evenly spread out?
The biosphere is everything on earth that supports life. Here is a picture of the different levels in which life is organized. The levels go from _________ to ________? (smallest, largest) Organ System Multicellular Organism Subatomic Particles Atoms Molecules Organelle Tissue Organ Cell Population Community Ecosystem Biome Biosphere
Biomes 1.Biomes are the major climate regions on earth. 2.Each biome has different kinds of plants and animals. 3.Deserts, rainforest etc. are examples of biomes Organ System Multicellular Organism Subatomic Particles Atoms Molecules Organelle Tissue Organ Cell Population Community Ecosystem Biome
Each Biome has a different climate 1.Biomes are different climate regions 2.Latitude (how far N or S) and altitude (how high) affect average temperature 3.Every living organism has its “just right” living conditions 4.Average temperature and rainfall determine climate 5.Climate is shown on a graph called a CLIMATOGRAM
How to read a CLIMATOGRAM Blue bars are rainfall Read the cm rain on R y Green bars are temperature Read the degree C on L y Along the X axis is Which month
1. Tropical rainforest High temperature and rainfall No seasons Lush, dense plants, very green Biodiverse: full of many different kinds of animals and plants!
