Transcript of Alycia's Biome Project

Analyze Biomes Desert Biome The average temperature of a desert can range from 20-25°C per year. The average rainfall can be anywhere from 1 to 30cm per year. Animals in the desert normally include armadillos, lizards, camels, coyotes, and rabbits. The plants normally include cacti, cold-desert phlox, succulents, tumbleweed, and acacia. The largest desert in North America is The Chihuahuan Desert, located in Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, and Mexico. The largest desert in the U.S is the Great Basin Desert. The largest desert in the world is the Sahara Desert, located in Northern Africa. There are two different types of deserts; cold and hot. Cold deserts can be covered in snow or ice and are located in Antarctica, Greenland, and the Nearctic ecozone. Hot deserts have very hot summers and the evaporation can sometimes be greater than the precipitation. Tropical Rainforest The average temperature in a tropical rainforest is about 77°F and is never below 64°F. Everything in the tropical rainforest would die if it got much colder. The rainfall ranges from 50-260 inches per year and the average humidity is between 77 and 88%. The animals that are usually in tropical rainforests are monkeys, gorillas, gibbons, vipers, and sloths. The plants that you would usually find in a tropical rainforest are bamboo, figs, coconut trees, and tualangs. The biggest rainforest is the Amazon Rainforest, located in South America. There are also tropical rainforests in Southeast Asia, Africa, and Australia. Tropical rainforests cover 7% of Earth's surface. The trees can reach up to 164ft tall and produces 40% of Earth's oxygen. Works Cited:
