    • Land BiomesPor: Isa O y Aleja
    • Introduction: Differentecosystems are home to different kinds of organisms, certain ones. There are different kinds of certain places and the scientific name is ¨Biomes¨, Which means: A large region characterized by a specific type of climate and certain types of plants and animal communities.
    • This map shows some of themajor land biomes on Earth.
    • Forest Biomes: Temperate Deciouous Forest Caniferous Forest Tropical Rain Forest
    • Temperate Deciduous Forest Characteristics: In forests, plants growth happends in layers. The leafy tops of the trees reach high above the forest floor, where the leaves can get sunlight. Woody shrubs catch the light that filters trhough the trees. Ferns and mosses are scattered across the firest floor. Flowering plants often bloom in early spring, before the trees grow new leaves. The word deciduous comes fron the Latin word taht means ¨ to fall off¨
    • AverageYearly Rainfall:75-125 cmAveragetempetures:S: 28°CW: 6°C
    • Coniferous Forest: Characteristic: These Conifer leaves are adapted to conserve water. A coniferous forest is home to many insects and to birds that eat those insects. Hervivores that live in thise forest include deer, moose, porcuponines, and squirrels.
    • Average Yearly Rainfall:35-75 cmAverage Temperatures:S: 14°CW: -10°C
    • Tropical Rain Forest Characteristics: Trees from a continuous green roof, or canopy that may exted 60 m above the forest floor. Woody vines climb the tree trunks to reach sunlight. Little light reaches the ground. Low-growing plants in the rain forest don´t need a lot of light.
    • Average YearlyRainfall:Up to 400 cmAverageTemperatures:Day: 34°CNight:20°C
    • Grasslands Temperate Grasslands Savannas
    • Temperate Grasslands: Characteristics: Temperate grasslands plants includes grasses and other flowering plants. Temperate Grasslands have few trees.
    • Average yearly rainfall:25-75 cmAverage Tempetures:S: 30°CW: 0°C
    • Savannas: Characteristics: A grassland that often has scattered trees and taht is found in tropical and subtropical areas where seasonal rains, fires, and drought happend. During dry seasons, savanna grasses dry out and turn yellow.
    • Average Yearly Rainfall:150 cmAverage tempetures:Dry: 34°CWet: 16°C
    • Desert: Characteristics: A region that has little or no plant life, kong periods without rain and extreme temperatures; usually found in hot climates. Deep-rooted plants can reach groundwater as deep as 30 cm. Some flowering plants bloom, bear seeds, and die within a few weeks after a heavy rain. Most living things have something special to survive in the desert.
    • Average YearlyRainfall:Less than 25 cmAverage Tempetures:S: 38°CW: 7°C
    • Tundra: A treeless plain found in the Artic, In the Sntartic, or on the tops of mountains that is characterized by very low winter temperatures and short, cool summers. Polar Tundra Alpine Tundra
    • Polar Tundra: Permafrost is the layer of soil beneath the surface. Soil stays frozen all the time.Alpine Tundrao Find at the top of tall mountains, above an elevation called the tree line. Trees ca not grow there
    • Rain: 30-50 cm S: 12°C W: -26°C Alpine TundraPolar Tundra
