Earth Biomes
Tundra Biome
Tundra has a cold climate, with long cold winters and short mild summers.
Plants are limited to mainly groundcover due to permaforst.
Rainwater can't soak and form shallow ponds and marshy areas.
Animals
Caribou
Foxes
Wolves
Arctic hares
Grassland Biome
Grassland biomes varies in temperature
They have hot summers and cold winters
Can get below zero.
All temperate climates lie roughly around the same latitude.
Animals

zebras (africa)
lions (africa)
cheetahs (africa)
bison (north america)
hawks and owls (africa and north america)
wild dogs (africa) coyote (north america)
Desert Biome
Rainforest Biome
Large parts of rainforests are being cut
down for agriculture.
The rainforest have very large predators.
Unlike desert biomes, has very much rainfall and supports diverse plant life
Animals
Bengal tiger
Chimpanzee
Harpy eagle
Vampire bat
Wagler's pit viper
Taiga Biome
Cold temperatures and food shortages make living condition rough especially during winters.
Taiga biomes are the largest biome in the world.
Winters are cold and have snowfall.
Summers are warm, humid and rainy.
Animals
American black bear
Bald eagle
Bobcat
Gray wolf
Snowshoe Rabbit
Freshwater Biome
There are three different types of freshwater regions; lakes and ponds, rivers and streams, and wetlands.
Plants and animals can't surivve in water that contains more the 1% salt.
Lakes and ponds are as diverse because they can be isoalted.
Rivers and streams have a more diversity with species.
Wetlands have the highest species diversity of the freshwater biome.
Animals
River otter
Trout
Catfish
Water birds(ducks,geese,etc.)
Water snakes
Desert biomes support plants, animals, and fungi
Desert organisms must adapt to lack of rain and extreme temperatures.
Most wildlife is active at night.
Very dry and lacks much rainfall
Can't support much plant life
Animals
Spotted hyena
Black-tailed jackrabbit
Greater roadrunner
Rattlesnake
Scorpions
Plants
grasses
scrubs
milkweed
cornflower
Plants
Saguaro cactus
Soaptree Yucca
Prickly pear cactus
Barrel cactus
Brittle bush
Plants
Bengal Bamboo
Coconut tree
Durian
Bromeliad
Tualang

Plants
Mosses
Grasses
Shrubs
Dwarf trees
Willows
Plants
Eastern Red cedar
Douglas Fir
White Spruce
Liches
Mosses
Plants
Algae
Pond lillies
Cattails
Coniferous Forest Biome
Marine Biome
Deciduous Forest Biome
Marine Biomes are five zones
These are the intertidal, neritic , open-ocean, surface and deep zones.

Animals
Sea stars (intertidal)
Manta ray (neritic)
Blue whales (open ocean-surface)
Giant squid (open ocean-deep)
A forest made up of deciduous trees.
These are trees that shed their leaves.
These forest receive enough rain to support trees and other plants.
Variety in plants creates diverse habitats.


Animals
Red Fox
Southern Flying Squirrel
Wood thrushes
White-tail deer
Black bear
Chipmunks and Squirrel
Plants
Maple trees
Oak trees
Mosses
Lichen
Aspen trees
Plants
Algae
Marsh grasses
Sea weeds

Landforms
Hills
Rivers
Prairies
Savannas
Plains
Steppes
Landforms
Mesas
Oasis
Dunes
Buttes
Landforms
Mountains
Rivers
Valleys
Streams
Wetlands
Landforms
Mountains
Ice Caps
Ponds
Landforms

Landforms
The coniferous forest is made of coniferous trees or trees with needles
Coniferous forests are located in the Taiga biome as well
Few plants can grow due to poor soil

Deserts
Forests
Mountains
Peaks
Small hills
Mountains
River plains
Animals:
red fox
snowshoe hare
moose
great-horned owl
crossbill
Plants
trees: fir, pine, spruce,hemlock
Landforms
rivers
streams
lakes
creeks
anything made up of water
Landforms
no landforms
