Transcript of Which Biome Where?

Which Biome, Where?
Around the World in Eight Places
60-90 Degrees North or South (Near Poles)
-58 to 64 Degrees F (Very cold)
Almost no precipitation
Long winter with several months of total darkness. Permanently frozen soil called "permafrost."
Tundra
35 to 50 Degrees North and South (South of Taiga)
-22 to 86 Degrees F (Moderate Temperatures)
Medium Amount of Rain
4 different seasons with trees that lose their leaves in the Winter.
Temperate Deciduous Forest
30 to 40 Degrees North and South (Same as TDF)
-40 to 86 Degrees F (Extreme temperatures)
Little rain
In the middle of continents. Not enough rain for many trees.
Grassland
50-60 Degrees North (Just South of Tundra)
-40 to 68 Degrees F (Very Cold in Winter, Warm in Summer)
Medium Amount of Precipitation
Aka "Evergreen Forest" Also found at the tops of mountains.
Taiga
North Slope, AK, USA
1 Plant and Its Adaptations
Lingonberry
Survives by being short, which protects it from the wind and has roots that do not need to get through permafrost.

1 Animal and Its Adaptations
Arctic Hare
White fur to blend in with snow.
Short ears that help keep heat from escaping.
Gjorvik, Norway
1 Plant and Its Adaptation
Fir Tree
Thick pointy needles do not freeze in the winter.
1 Animal and Its Adaptation
Black Bear
Thick Fur and layer of fat to survive cold. Sleeps through the Winter.
Brown County, IN, USA
1 Animal and Its Adaptations
Oriole
Lives in trees to escape predators. Flies to warmer climates in winter.
1 Plant and Its Adaptations
Apple Tree
Loses leaves in the winter to protect itself from freezing. Makes seeds inside a fruit to get animals to plant its young.
24 Degrees North to 24 Degrees South (Anything near the Equator)
68 - 93 Degrees F year round
A lot of rain
Hot and Humid, Tall trees
Tropical Rainforest

Monteverde, Costa Rica
1 Plant and Its Adaptation
Vanilla Orchid
Grows on top of other trees because there is no room on the ground.
1 Animal and Its Adaption
Sloth
Has adapted to live in trees, never needing to touch the ground.
Moves slowly so predators cant see it.
Pretoria, South Africa
1 Plant and Its Adaptation
Acacia Tree
Loses leaves in the summer to avoid catching fire. Leaves and branches only grow towards the top to keep from getting eaten.
1 Animal and Its Adaptation
Lion
Has brown fur to blend in and runs fast to help it catch food.
18 to 35 Degrees North and South (South of TDF/Grasslands)
0 to 120 Degrees F (Most extreme temperatures)
Almost no rain
Hot during the day, cold at night. Very dry.
Desert
Centro, Mexico
1 Plant and Its Adaptation
Nopal
Stores water in its core whenever it rains. Keeps animals from getting this water by having spikes.
1 Animal and Its Adaptation
Jackrabbit
Short fur and long ears to help keep it cool during the day. Sleeps underground at night.
All Latitudes
Temperature depends on location and depth of water
A lot of rain
Any water with salt in it
Marine
Great Barrier Reef, Australia
1 Plant and Its Adaptation
Kelp
Floats in the water instead of having a trunk
1 Animal and Its Adaptation
Sea Turtle
Has fins instead of feet.
All Latitudes
Temperature depends on location and depth of water
Precipitation depends on location
Any water without salt and surrounded by land
Freshwater
Lake Towada, Japan
1 Plant and Its Adaptation
Moss
Grows and the sides of rocks and uses the stream water for water and nutrients.
1 Animal and Its Adaptations
Rainbow Trout
