Transcript

  • 1. What factors affect climate? • Temperature – Light energy = energy for producers – Heat energy = warm! • Latitude – If a region is closer to the north or south pole, it will be cooler
  • 2. • Elevation – Distance above sea level – As you move higher, the air is cooler because the air is thinner • Precipitation – Rain shadow: when warm air is forced up the side of a mountain it cools and condenses – Rains only on one side of the mountain
  • 3. How is climate related to the land? • Vegetation • Animals • Type of land and soil
  • 4. What is a biome? • Large geographic area that has: – Similar climate – Similar ecosystems • similar organisms • 6 common types on the planet: – Tundra – Taiga – Temperate deciduous forest – Tropical rain forest – Grassland – Desert
  • 5. How are biomes important to the study of ecology? • All things (living and non – living) are closely related to their environment • Animals and plants make special adaptations to the biome • Help humans understand their impact on a certain environment
  • 6. Where do we live? • Tropical rain forest • Savannah (type of grassland)|
  • 7. COMMON BIOMES Biome Climate (Abiotic) Organisms (Vegetation and Animals) (Biotic) Tundra Taiga Temperate Deciduous Forest Tropical Rain Forest Grassland Desert
