Ecosystems and Biomes
Areas formed by plants and animals that have adapted to the environment
Main Biomes 1.Desert 2.Tundra 3.Grassland 4.Deciduous Forest 5.Taiga 6.Tropical Rainforest
Nocturnal animals Can be very hot or very cold Plants have adapted or they didn’t survive
Permafrost – permanently frozen soil just below the surface Very cold Plants have adapted or they didn’t survive
Grassland Cool in winter and hot in summer Flat areas of grass
Mild climate and adequate rainfall Most trees will lose their leaves in the winter
Taiga (Boreal Forest) The largest biome Low temperatures Precipitation is primarily snow
Tropical Rain Forest Typically found near the equator Warm and lots of rain 6 % of the earth, but 40 % of the oxygen
Similar climates, vegetation, or landforms and be divided into formal regions
Biomes of the World. What is a biome? A BIOME is a large geographic area containing similar plants, animals, and climate.
Tropical Rain Forest Located Near the Equator High Precipitation No Seasons Temperate Rain Forest Middle Latitudes High Temperature Moderate Temperatures.
1. Sunshine (solar energy) 2. Rainfall 3. Temperature 4. Soil.
WHAT CREATES AN ECOSYSTEM? Energy and nutrient flows create ecosystems. There are four main factors that determine the nature of biomes/ecosystems and.
Biomes of the World.
Biomes. Biomes Biomes are a group of ecosystems with similar climates (temperature and rainfall) and organisms.
Biomes of the World. Weather vs. Climate Weather – the day-to-day condition of Earth’s atmosphere at a certain time and place. Climate – the average yearly.
Biomes of the World TEK: Identify characteristics of your local biome and compare it to four other biomes.
Terrestrial Biomes. 1.What is climate? 2. weather – the condition of atmosphere at a specific place and time 3. meteorologists tell us the weather on.
Biomes A biome is an area with similar climate, plants, and animals A biome is an area with similar climate, plants, and animals Climate: the temperature.
ECOSYSTEMS - 1. Climate Zones- areas of the Earth where certain climate conditions have existed over time (temperature & precipitation)
