  • Transcript of "Biome Desert"

    1. 1. DESERT By Katerina Barry
    2. 2. Desert Locations Some Desert’s: • Sahara Desert (Africa) • Atacama Desert (Chile) • Gobi Desert (Mongolia) • Great Basin Desert (North America) • Antarctica
    3. 3. Sahara Desert
    4. 4. Deserts Of The World
    5. 5. Plants Barrel Cactus, Brittle Bush, Chainfruit Cholla,Creosote Bush, Crimson Hedghog Cactus, Desert Ironwood, Joshua Tree, Jumping Cholla, Mojave Aster, Ocotillo, Palo Verde, Pancake Prickly Pear Cactus, Saguaro Cactus, Soaptree Yucca, Triangle-leaf Bursage
    6. 6. Plant Adaptions -Succulent Plants store water in there roots, stems and leaves, and some have long root systems that go deep into the ground to absorb water. -Some plants have no leaves, which helps reduce water loss during photosynthesis. -Some plant leaves have hair or have leaves that turn throughout the day to create shade from the heat. -Plants such as cacti, grow spines so that animals won’t eat the plants.
    7. 7. Gobi Desert
    8. 8. Animals Armadillo Lizard(Carnivore) Banded Gila Monster(Omnivore) Bobcat(Carnivore) Cactus Wren(Omnivore) Coyote(Omnivore) Bighorn Sheep(Herbivore) Kangaroo Rat(Omnivore) Tortoise(Herbivore) Javelina(Herbivore) Cactus Ferruginoug Pygmy Owl Sonoran Desert Toad(Omnivore) Sonoran Pronghorn Antelope Thorny Devil(Omnivore)
    9. 9. Kangaroo Mouse Armadillo Lizard Bobca t Coyote Javeli na Gila Monster
    10. 10. Animal Adaptions -One animal adaption is to store water to endure lack of water. Water can be stored in fatty deposits and other tissue For example, the Gila monster stores water in it’s tail. -Another adaption is to learn how to tolerate Hyperthermia. Most animals in the desert can survive body temperatures that would be dangerous for humans. -Many desert mammals and reptiles are crepuscular, meaning they are only active during dusk, dawn and during the night when the temperatures are cooler, and sleep in cave’s, den’s or burrow’s during the day.
    11. 11. Antarctic Desert
    12. 12. Food Chain Producer: Soil, Bacteria, Plants Primary Consumer: Insects, Lizards, Rodents, Deer and other Grazers Secondary Consumer: Larger Predator’s such as Coyote’s, Hawk’s and other birds, and foxes.
    13. 13. Great Basin Desert
    14. 14. Decomposers -Fungi -Dung Beetle -Over 40 Species Of Termite
