Climate:
It is very hot and dry in a chaparral biome. It generally gets 10-17 inches of rain per year.
Latitude: 35-40 degrees N
Longitude: 118-123 degrees W
Seasons:
Spring
Summer
Fall
Winter
Latitude & Longitude:
anywhere from 23* North to 38* South
Human Impact:
People build many buildings and tourist attractions in a chaparral. By doing so, they damage the habitats of the wildlife. Organisms eventually become endangered because they can't survive.
Interesting Facts:
Includes both forests and grasslands
The dry summers make the land sensitive to fires
Some plants have adapted and now rely on the fires
Human Impacts:
People cut down forest for houses, ships, paper, ect.
Air pollution from fuels poison soil and kill wildlife
introduction of non-native plants and animals kill what is already residing in a habitat
Animals:
Polar Bear
Caribou
Arctic Fox
Arctic Hare
Snowy Owl
Plants:
Bearberry
Arctic Moss
Diamond-Leaf Willow
Climate:
Dry, cold, and windy
Interesting facts:
deciduous means change in color- as with the seasons
most animals are camoflauge with the forest floor to hide from preditors
plants loose there leaves
Latitude: 75 to 60 degrees N
Longitude: 156 degrees W
Seasons:
Summer
Winter
Human Impact:
People create air pollution which damages the ecosystem. Oil spills can kill wildlife and ruin their habitats.
Interesting Facts:
Tundra means 'treeless land'
Most animals hibernate
Tundra covers about 20% of Earth
Animals:
Roadrunner
Meerkat
Spotted Hyena
Rattlesnake
Sorpion
Plants:
Cactus
Brittle Bush
Creosote Bush
leaves change colors

Latitude: 35 degrees N to 15 degrees S
Longitude: 35 degrees W to 15 degrees E
Raccoon
Climate:
Average Temperature is over 64 degrees F
1 inch of rain per year
Seasons:
Summer
Winter
Carpet moss
Human Impact:
People use irrigation for agriculture purposes and it may lead to salt levels in the soil and become too high to support the plants living there. Nuclear waste is dumped in the desert and also causes damage to the environment.

Animals of the Tropical Rainforest:
Okapi
African Forest Elephant
Gorilla
Pygmy Hippopotamus
Piranha
Plants of the Tropical Rainforest:
coconut tree
kapok tree
banana plant
Climate:
Tropical moist climate, humid, warm
Interesting Facts:
20% of deserts on Earth are covered in sand
Desert biomes cover 1/3 of Earth
The largest desert is the Sahara
Animals:
Bald Eagles
Moose
Siberian Tiger
Eastern Milk Snake
Western Tanager
Average Temperature: 70-85 degrees F
Precipitation Patterns:
more than 100 inches of rain per year
Seasons:
No true seasons
Dry periods don't last long enough for the leaves to dry
Latitude: 16 degrees S to 20 degrees N
Animals:
Gazelles

Foxes
Longitude: 95 degrees E to 130 degrees E
Plants:
Buffalo Grass
Sagebrush

Climate:
Hot summers (above 90 degrees)
Cold winters (below 0 degrees)
Low to moderate rainfall (20-35in)
Seasons:
Spring
Summer
Fall
Winter
Climate:
Temperature: -40* C to 20* C, Average summer temperature is 10* C
Precipitation: 300 to 900 millimeters of rain per year
Vegetation: Coniferous - Evergreen Trees / Trees that produce needles and cones that stay all year round
Human Impact:
Each year over 90,000 square miles are harvested for human use
2% of the rainforest is lost annually
137 species are lost per day
deforestation has cause land mass to go from 15 million square kilometers to 8 million square kilometers
Seasons:
The deciduous forest has four distinct seasons, spring, summer, autumn, and winter. In the autumn the leaves change color. During the winter months the trees lose their leaves.
The animals adapt to the climate by hibernating in the winter and living off the land in the other three seasons.
Human Impact:
The use of agriculture causes an increase in soil erosion. The hunting of animals will eventually lead to endangered species or even extinction.
Interesting Facts:
25% of Earth is covered by grassland
Grasslands are normally located between a forest and a desert
Latitude: 37 degrees N to 34 degrees S
Longitude: 51 degrees E to 17 degrees W
Interesting Facts:
An area of a rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed each second.
In the moist rainforests of South America, sloths move so slowly that algae are able to grow in their fur.
The trees of a tropical rainforest are so densely packed that rain falling on the canopy can take as long as 10 minutes to reach the ground.
Seasons:
have cold, long, snowy winters, and warm, humid summers; well-defined seasons, at least four to six frost-free months.
Human Impacts:
Logging may worsen global warming and destroy the habitat of some animals.
The excessive amount of hunting and trapping can create a negative effect on the population
Roads can act as barriers to organisms and isolate populations of the same species.
Food Web:
Animals of the Savanna:
African Wild Dog
Amur Leopard
Egyptian Mongoose
Caracal
Masai Giraffe
Interesting Facts:
The coniferous forest is probably the worlds largest land biome.
The coniferous forest was named after the conifer tree that produces seeds and cones.
The main source of food in the coniferous forest is the seeds produced by the conifer trees.

Moose
Human Impact:
tourism brings in a lot of money that helps fund conservation reserves
humans have wiped out a large portion of African savanna to raise cattle
Hunting has exterminated and endangered several animal species

Interesting Facts:
Around half of the African continent, or 5 million square miles, is taken up by savanna
Most of Africa's 2,300 species of birds are found in the savanna
Many animals have developed tough cheek teeth so they can stand their diets. Most animals cannot eat tough grass like the animals that live in the Savanna.
