Transcript of Intertidal Biome

Intertidal Biome By: Jamie Lombardo and TaraMurphy Soil v.s. Sand- fine grains of rock and shell combined together. Rocky(can have a steep slope like the pacific north west intertidal, or a gentle declining slope like the intertidal on the coast of Maine.) Prevalent Animals California Sea Lion (Zalophus californianus) Length: 5 1/2- 7 1/2 ft.
Diet: fish, squid, and octopus
Cool Fact: the california sea lion is the most common seal found in circus acts. Size Compared to Human Range Diamondback Terrapin Length: 4-9 in.
Diet: shellfish, clams, snails, plant shoots and worms
Cool Fact: At night, the diamondback terrapin burries itself in mud. Size Compared to Human Region Herring Gull (Malaclemys terrapin) (Larus argentatus) Length: 21 1/2- 26 in.
Diet: eggs, fish, waste, small mammals, and young birds
Cool Fact: Herring gulls build their nests on islands, beaches, and on cliff slopes. Size Compared to Human Region Harbor Seal Length: 4 1/2- 6 ft.
Diet: squid, crustaceans, and fish
Cool Fact: Habor seal pups can swim from birth. (phoca vitulina) Size Compared to Humans Region Prevalent Vegetation American Dune Grass (Leymus mollis) Region Where on intertiadal biome: dunes
Size: up to 6 ft. tall
Adaption(s) to withstand intertidal:reflects harmful sun rays and has thick, shiny leaves that hold lots of water
Cool fact: Roots of American dune grass spread underneath sand to keep the grass from being removed by natural causes( flooding, blowing away, ect.) Pig Face (carpobrotus rossii) Where on intertidal biome: dunes and rocky headlands
Size: flowers are 4-6 cm. in diameter
Adaption(s) to withstand intertidal:Leaves have a triangular shape that stores water on hot, dry summer days
Cool fact: Pig face can sometimes survive the frost Found on the pacific coast
of the Americas, Australia,
and South Africa Sorry, there was no map : ( Sources http://www.mbgnet.net/index.html http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/glossary/gloss5/biome/ http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/glossary/gloss5/biome/ http://animal.discovery.com/guides/mammals/habitat/map.htm http://www.windows2universe.org/earth/ecosystems.html http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&biw=1280&bih=695&tbm=isch&tbnid=8ZehXsXBbev54M:&imgrefurl=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Intertidal_greenalgae.jpg&docid=h1zFrjcJbO8YFM&imgurl=http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/78/Intertidal_greenalgae.jpg&w=980&h=735&ei=aztiUL2AD4OC8QSe_IHYCQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=307&vpy=146&dur=528&hovh=194&hovw=259&tx=175&ty=86&sig=109829327383069401258&page=1&tbnh=149&tbnw=216&start=0&ndsp=15&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0,i:156 http://www.google.com/imgres?num=10&hl=en&biw=1280&bih=695&tbm=isch&tbnid=cbloLPvWWZS61M:&imgrefurl=http://science.nature.nps.gov/im/units/nccn/vs/intertidal/intertidal.cfm&docid=vUJUxXriL7692M&imgurl=http://science.nature.nps.gov/im/units/nccn/vs/intertidal/Images/shishi_small.jpg&w=813&h=610&ei=-ydjUPzZHsLI0QHVgIHoCA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=978&vpy=363&dur=187&hovh=194&hovw=259&tx=140&ty=56&sig=109829327383069401258&page=3&tbnh=159&tbnw=214&start=35&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:4,s:35,i:272 http://www.google.com/imgres?num=10&hl=en&sa=X&biw=1280&bih=695&tbm=isch&tbnid=Dx_5eSALcGOnDM:&imgrefurl=http://www.turtlejournal.com/%3Fp%3D2689&docid=XEZLvinO5ifZEM&imgurl=http://www.turtlejournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/04/001.jpg&w=840&h=582&ei=10FjUNK9Boe40QHI3oDwCg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=189&vpy=351&dur=1094&hovh=187&hovw=270&tx=184&ty=162&sig=109829327383069401258&page=4&tbnh=157&tbnw=211&start=57&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:57,i:261 http://www.google.com/imgres?start=136&hl=en&biw=1280&bih=695&tbm=isch&tbnid=z9Jv-GikhCRNqM:&imgrefurl=http://www.natureartists.com/artists/artist_artwork.asp%3FArtistID%3D1441%26ArtworkID%3D24913&docid=BEizxtdhudLYPM&imgurl=http://www.natureartists.com/art/resized/1441_Observations_2010_-_Lunchtime_7x11.JPG&w=366&h=230&ei=zkZjULyTBqjO0QHuloHADg&zoom=1&iact=rc&dur=458&sig=109829327383069401258&page=8&tbnh=112&tbnw=178&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:5,s:136,i:152&tx=82&ty=62 http://www.parks.tas.gov.au/index.aspx?base=3236 http://www.apstas.com/carpobrotus.htm http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals/AnimalDetails.aspx?enc=LeWQvjcLBGSWLVgRso3i3g== http://plants.usda.gov/java/profile?symbol=lemo8 Thanks for Watching!!!!!!!!!!

Intertidal Biome Here is a video showing other animals that live in intertidal biomes. These animals had to adapt to survive, see why... Temperature Range Intertidals don't really have a specific temperature
range. Because there are many shorelines across the U.S.
