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.
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.
Scientists believe that the area covered by the taiga will decrease by 50-90% over the next 50 years, causing many species to become endangered and extinct.
An interesting fact about the taiga is that as the seasons change rapidly, the weather goes from one extreme to another.
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.
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.
Trees do not grow there.
Winters are very cold.
Summers last for a very short time.
Under the soil the earth is frozen and never melts.
