French Guyana, Peru, Venezuela.
• Organisms that you would find here include
insects such as butterflies and beetles,
arachnids such as spiders and tics, and
bamboo.
• Mountains, hills, flat lands, streams, swamps
and wet grasslands are some physical
landforms located here.
• The average yearly rainfall is up to 400cm a
year, and the average temperature in the
daytime is 93f and 68f at night.
Deserts
• The Sahara, Atacama, Iranian, Arabian,
Namib, Thor, and Patagonian are some of
the many deserts there are.
• Organisms here include cacti, bushes and
shrubby plants, and lizards and other
reptiles.
• Deserts are known as the hottest biome in
the world with temperatures that exceed
100f in the summer and 45f in the winter.
• It’s such a dry place because it can get less
that 25cm of rainfall a year.
• Cacti (the most common plant in the
desert) is important to this biome. It
provides ground cover in hostile
environments.
• Snakes are also important they serve
as a pest control by consuming rodents
and insects.
Savannah
• East African Savanna, Serengeti Plains of
Tanzania, South America, Brazil, Columbia are
some places where Savannahs are located.
• The organisms here are elephants, giraffes,
ungulates, herbivores, and carnivores.
• Rolling grasslands, grassy ground layer,
distinct upper layer of woody plants, dense as
wood lands.
• The average yearly rainfall is 150cm. Average
temperatures are 150f in the dry season, and 61f
in the wet season.
• Animals have adaption of body parts.
• Biotic Factors are: elk, bears, and deer.
• Abiotic Factors are: Temperature, water, and
rainfall
• Inter-Relationships include: Predation (lions
attacking zebras) Mutualism (the oxpeckers,
and the rhinoceros; the oxpecker gets
the ticks that are on the rhinos for its food, the
rhino gets the ticks taken off it. the oxpeckers
also warn the rhinos of any danger that may
be lurking.)
Taiga
• Stretches over Eurasia and North America,
Canada, Siberia, Scandinavia, Alaska, and
Sweden.
• Pine, moose, elk, wolves, grizzly bears,
wood peckers, lynx, foxes, and conifer
trees are some of the many organisms
that you would find here.
• Landforms here such as plains only exist
at high latitudes and mountains at low
latitudes. They typically exist in mountain
ranges.
• Average yearly rainfall in this biome is
150 cm and the average temperature is
93f in the dry season and 61f in the wet
season.
• Producers here are oak trees, maple
trees, coneda, and fortuna.
• Consumers here are opossums,
cardinals, squirrels, and gray fox.
Tundra
• Stretches over Antarctica, North Pole,
South Pole, Northern portions of Canada,
Alaska, Greenland, and North America.
• Millions of ducks, loons, gulls, geese,
sandpipers, artic tern, foxes, moose,
songbirds and hare.
• Landscapes here are formed by the
freezing, thawing, and the freezing of
soggy soil.
• Yearly rainfall in this biome is 30 to 50
cm. a year and the average
temperature is 54f in the summer and
-14f in the winter.
Fresh Water
• Fresh water biomes are found all
throughout the world. Includes wetlands,
streams, lakes, rivers, and ponds. Specific
locations include: Lake Baikal located in
Central Asia, and Lake Tahoe.
• Organisms that live there include: Algae,
cattails, brine-spike, deer flower, swamp
frond, and tamarack .
• Landforms are corral reefs, islands, sea
mounts, and beaches.
• Climate is cooler at the source than it is
at the mouth, during the summer temp.
ranges from 39f to 4c in the winter.
They ranger from top to bottom.
• Abiotic factors here are rocks, water,
temperature, and soil.
• Biotic factors here are algae, fish such
as bass, trout, and salmon.
Deciduous Forest
• Found in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Russia, Japan,
Eastern China, Southern Chile, Middle East
Paraguay.
• Organism found here are American bald eagles,
American black bear, Coyote, Duckbill platypus,
Eastern Chipmunk, European Red Squirrel, Least
Weasels, and many more.
• Landforms here are mountains, Appalachian, ,
Cumberland mountains, Mountain Mitchell, Blue
Ridge, and the green mountains.
• Yearly rainfall is 29-47 inches a year. And the
average temperature in the summer is 82f and 42f in
the winter.
• The things that provide life (producers)
are oak trees, maple trees, and Fortuna.
Consumers are opossums, cardinals and
squirrels.
• Symbiotic relationships here are
parasitism (ticks feed on deer) and
mutualistic (bees feed on nectar and
spread it to other flowers).
Salt Water
• Found in Atlantic Ocean, Pacific Ocean,
Indian Ocean, Artic Ocean, Mediterranean
Sea, Caspian Sea, Bays, Gulfs, and Reefs.
• Organisms that live here are, sea urchins,
sea veggies, angler fish, and poisonous
crown.
• Landscape includes, underwater
volcanoes, sea mounts, corral reefs, and
tombolo.
• Coldest temp. for the Pacific Ocean is 32f
the warmest is 82f.
• Sea urchins in the 1980’s caused a sea
urchin population and sea weed
decreased.
• Imperial shrimp and sea cucumbers are
an example of a mutualistic
relationship. (shrimp rides on
