Transcript of "Biomes 2.05"

  1. 1. 2.05 Biomes!!! You need to know the Tundra, Desert, Temperate Deciduous Forest, Rain Forest, Grasslands and the Water Biomes
  2. 2. Forests: 1. Places where there is enough rain and right temperatures to support trees 2. Types of forest depend on rainfall and temperature: a. Temperate Deciduous Forest b. Coniferous Forest (Taiga) c. Tropical Rain Forest
  3. 3. - Biomes
  4. 4. Temperate (Deciduous) Forest of North America
  5. 5. 1. Average Precipitation: 75 cm to 150 cm yearly 2 usually 4 seasons a year with temperature differences (TEMPERATE)
  6. 6. Deciduous Forest Plants Deciduous = losing leaves, becoming dormant plants in the Most Oak trees, pine trees, dogwood deciduous forest lose their leaves in the fall. Some drop seeds that start a new life in the spring and others remain dormant underground until the new year begins.
  7. 7. Grey Squirrel Goshawk Raccoon Deciduous Forest Animals Animals within this biome must adapt to cool winters and do so by hibernating, migrating, or by staying active. Spring Peeper White-tailed deer
  8. 8. 1. Lots of Precipitation: 200 cm to 500 cm each year 2. Temperatures are warm and stable – very HUMID! 3. Lots of species of plants and animals a. Plants: Vines, orchids, moss, ferns, trees b. Animals: 150 different types of butterflies, snakes, Lizards, salamanders, monkeys, Bats, Jaguars, Birds
  9. 9. Tropical Rainforest Plants Rainforest Plants have adaptations that help them to catch water. They grow fast and usually have a large root system to help the plant trap nutrients from the soil. They grow fast, have large leaves to catch sunlight.
  10. 10. Tropical Rainforest Animals Orangutan Located near the equator, animals are usually colorful which can mean ‘DANGER’. They hold over half of the world’s known species!
  11. 11. Deserts of America
  12. 12. 1. Dry – not a lot of rain – less than 25 cm per year a. Because there is little water, plants are spread widely apart and the ground is mostly bare 1. Hot during day, cold during nights 2. Poor soil 4. Few large animals are found because there is not enough food or water to support them.
  13. 13. Desert Plants Adaptations Plants in the desert have thorny spines that help defend them, fleshy stems to store water, and have a large root base to collect water successfully.
  14. 14. Cactus Wren Desert Animals Desert Animals have special adaptations to deal with the lack of rainfall for this biome. Many are NOCTURNAL and they only come out at night to hunt and eat when it’s cooler. Some animals don’t even drink water! They get their water from seeds or plants. Sidewinder Thorny Lappet-faced Vulture Desert Scorpion
  15. 15. - Biomes
  16. 16. 1. Is located near the polar regions 2. Cold, dry, treeless region and is covered with ice most of the year 3. Winters are 6 to 9 months long 4. Precipitation ~ less then 25cm a year a. Just like a desert – a COLD desert 4. Ground covered with a layer of permanently frozen soil = permafrost
  17. 17. 6. Plants: – lichens (reindeer moss) , True mosses, Grasses, Small shrubs 7. Animals - in the summer – Mosquitoes – Birds (Geese, ducks, snowy owls) – Mice, voles, lemmings, artic hares, caribou, musk oxen
  18. 18. 8. Adaptations: a. Thick fur, blubber, camafloauge b. Mosquitos with anti-freeze in body c. Most plants have dense shallow roots to conserve water
  19. 19. - Biomes
  20. 20. 1. There are grasslands on almost every continent 2. Precipitation: 25 cm to 75 cm yearly a. They have a dry season with little to no rain b. This prevents larger plant from growing here 3. Main plant is grass
  21. 21. 4. Plants: Grass such as: – Wheat, Oats, Barley, Corn – Grasses have extensive root systems that can absorb water when it rains and can withstand drought during long dry spells 5. Animals – Kangaroos, Wildebeests, Zebras, Prairie Dogs – They eat the stems, leaves, and seeds of grass plants
  22. 22. Fresh water biomes 1. Not salty water 2. Very important resources - drinking water 3. Examples: lakes, rivers, stream, wetlands 4. Lots of animals and plants: sea weed, lilies, turtles, fish, birds, amphibians
  23. 23. Salt water Biomes 1. Very high salt content 2. Very important resource – food, water 3. Examples – oceans, seas, bays, estuaries 4. Lots of animals/plants: sea weed, algae, kelp, sharks, fish, turtles, snakes, dolphins, mammals, birds
