Transcript of Copy of Biomes Prezi
Polar deserts are cold, while most deserts are hot. Deserts in the temperate region can have temperatures from 32 to over 100 degrees Fahrenhiet.
Hot daytime temperatures, cool evening temperatures
Less than 25 cm per year
In North America, there are 4 major hot, dry deserts, including the Mojave
Outside the U.S. hot, dry deserts are found in the Southern Asia, South and Central America, Ethiopia and Australia
3. Coniferous Forest
Moderate temperatures but experience seasonal changes. Depending upon climate zone, temperatures range from 20 degrees F to over 70 degrees F.
Cool winters and warm summers but some, based on location, have cold winters.
in temperate zone: 12 - 35in
in tropical zone can exceed 60 in. in a month.
Found all over the world between the poles and the equator. Found in all climate zones.
range from -40 to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit depending upon location
typically have between 10 - 35 inches of precipitation a year, much of it in late spring and early summer
Less rain than the forests
Found in middle of large land masses or continents. The two major areas are the prairies in North America and the steppe which straddles Europe and Asia. The majority of this biome is found between 40° and 60° north or south of the Equator.
5. Deciduous Forest
Average temperature is 50°F. Summers are mild, and average about 70°F, while winter temperatures are often well below freezing
30 to 60 inches per year
located primarily in the eastern half of the United States, Canada, Europe, parts of Russia, China, and Japan
Temperate and Tropical
70 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit
Warm temperatures year round
Most rainforests get between 80 and 400 inches of rain per year!
Close to the equator or the coastal areas of the temperate region.
A tropical rainforest receives an enormous amount of rain!
The floor of a rainforest doesn't receive very much sunlight due to the trees in the canopy blocking the sun.
Rainforests can be found in tropical zones AND temperate zones. Because of this, the average temperature of a rainforest is hard to determine.
Around one third of the Earth's surface is covered in deserts.
With lack of water, high daytime temperatures and sometimes freezing conditions at night, deserts can be extremely dangerous places for humans.
There are both hot and cold deserts. Antarctica is the largest desert in the world, while the Sahara in Africa is the largest of the hot deserts.
Coniferous- consist of trees that grow needles instead of leaves and have cones instead of flowers.
Coniferous trees thrive where summers are short and cool and winters long and harsh, with heavy snowfall that can last as long as 6 months.
Only around 2% of the original prairies of North America still exist. Much of it has been turned into farmland.
Tumbleweeds can be found in grasslands.
Grasslands are also known as prairies, pampas, steppes, and savannas.
Variety of Birds
Deciduous forests are recognized by vegetation and its unique four seasons.
Since “Deciduous” means “to change color in autumn, and fall in the winter” this is compared to the phenomenon that the trees of this forest experience in the seasons.
