The taiga is the largest biome. It is locate 50 degrees latitude , and in the Artic circle. Taiga Desert Types of PLants

Rainforest The average temperature of the rainforest is 77 degrees Fahrenheit. During summer the tropical rainforest is warm and moist. During winter it is cooler.The Rainforest Biome receives the most precipitation. This biome sees 80-400 inches of rain per year. Plant life is rich and prosperous in this environment. Climate of the Tropical Rainforest. Tropical Rainforest Temperate Rainforest There are two types of Rainforest; Temperate and Tropical. Tropical Rainforest can be found near the equator in the U.S. These Rainforest lie between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. Temperate Rainforest are located along coasts in the temperate zone. Animals of the

Deserts receive an average of 10 inches of precipitation yearly. The four major deserts of North America are: The Great Basin, Mojave, Sonaran, and Chihuhuan Deserts.
Of course the largest desert in the world is The SAHARA DESERT. Freshwater Rivers & Streams

Ponds & Lakes

Wetlands The freshwater ecosystem consist of 3 types of bodies of water. They are rivers & streams, ponds & lakes, and wetlands. Rivers and streams make up .3% of the Earth's surface. These waterways channel water across the planet. Lakes are larger than ponds. Ponds are shallow enough to support rooted plants. However, lakes are too deep to support rooted plants. Freshwater wetlands can be found all across the world. Some last for short periods of time, and others are permanent. Wetlands are important, because they hold water. This prevents floods. Marine Shorelines

Temperate Oceans

Tropical Oceans The marine ecosystem consist of shorelines, temperate oceans, and tropical oceans. Shorelines serve as the meeting point of where seas and oceans meet land. Plants and animals who live on shorelines have strange adaptations. Tropical oceans are most known for their coral reefs.

Turkey The temperate forest has 4 seasons. Which are summer,winter,spring, and fall. During autumn the leaves on trees change colors, fall off in winter, and frow back in spring. This adaptations of the trees helps them survive. The temperate forest recieves 30-60 inches of rainfall each year. It's temperature varies from season to season. Types of Animals
