Transcript

  • 1. Biomes
  • 2. Biomes• Differ from biosphere – Biosphere – every habitable place on Earth – Biome – Large area with similar conditions with organisms adapting to those conditions• Major factors: Temp and precipitationSee p331 IB Course Companion
  • 3. What you need to know• Note the difference in the previous two biome graphs• “Know” the major (big) biomes – Have an idea of the approximate temperature and and annual precipitation for each – Know the typical flora (plant life) – Location on Earth of each
  • 4. Relationship between ecosystems/biomes• Explain how the biosphere consists of interdependent and interrelated ecosystems. – Interdependence Example: Many ecosystems depend on oxygen from the rain forests, or from algae in the ocean – Interrelationship Example: Rising temperatures in the poles resulting in melting of the ice would have great effects on coastal ecosystems all over the world
