Transcript of Terrestrial Biomes

Terrestrial Biomes Tropical Forest Abiotic Factors
Temperture Two factors which determine which biome is present is the animal and plant species and climate. Biotic Factors
Animals- African Forest Elephant, Bengal Tiger
Plants- Bengal Bamboo, Coconut Tree Abiotic v.s Biotic
Temperature and Climate have such a big impact on the plant and animal life that life in the different layers of the rainforest. Every layer has different animals because of the amount of food or variety of food. On the top layer or emergent layer very large trees grow because of the amount of sunlight it gets. Savanna Abiotic Factors
Weather Biotic Factors
Animals- Cheetas, Kangaroos, Gophers
Plants- Permuda Grass, Jarrah Tree, Baobab Abiotic V.S. Biotic
Drought and fires directly impact the types of plants that can live in a savanna. Grasses found a way to survive the droughs and fires. This then supplys grass for kangaroos and zebras. Deserts Abiotic Factors
Temperture Biotic Factors
Animals- Snakes, Hawks, Rodents
Plants- Joshua Tree, Cacti, Brittle Bush Abiotic V.S. Biotic
The abiotic factors have a obvious direct relation to the plants and animals that live in deserts. The rainfall in deserts is a very small amount but many plants have adapted to it by using a water storage inside the plant. Chaparral Abiotic Factors
Ocean Currents
Weather Biotic Factors
Animals- Deer, Birds, Lizards
Plants- Olive Tree , Blue Oak, Fairy Duster Abiotic V.S. Biotic
The climate and ocean currents are the main factors in producing a enviroment that can support fruit budding plants and seed trees.Which is perfect for the many kind of animals that live there like birds and deer. Most of these plants have adpted to the fires that are caused by the hot tempertures. Temperate Grasslands Abiotic Factors
Temperture Biotic Factors
Animals- Bison, Horses, Pronghorns
Plants- Buffalo Grass, Crazy Weed, Blazing Stars Abiotic V.S. Biotic
This biome has periodic severe drought caused by the low rainfall. Also fires and the grazing by large animals also causes the land to have such severe droughts.The large animals such as buffalo, bison, and pronghorns eat a lot of the grass in this biome which is produced very well do to the land being the most productive agricultural region.
Temperate Broadleaf Forest Abiotic Factors
Temperture Biotic Factors
Animals- Bobcats, Black Bears, Foxes
Plants- Carpet Moss, White Oak , White Birch Abiotic V.S. Biotic
Moisture is a big factor in the growth of the tall trees that can grow. Many other factors play a role in what types of trees can grow which are climate , latitude, and topography. The high annual precipitation has a big affect on the amount and the certain mooses and and scurbs that can grow.
Coniferous Forest (Taiga) Abiotic Factors
Temperture Biotic Factors
Animals- Elk, Bears, Moose
Plants- Jack Pine, White Fir, Paper Birch Abiotic V.S. Biotic
The latitude and climate is a big affect on the type of trees that can grow. Only pine needle trees can grow because of the little nutrients it can supply. Only larger and some small animals can leabe here because of the colder tempertures.

Tundra Abiotic Factors
Winds Biotic Factors
Animals- Arctic Fox, Caribou, Musk Oxen
Plants- Arctic Moss, Arctic Willow, Bearberry Abiotic V.S. Biotic
In this biome the biggest factors is the very high altitude, temperature, and weathers. On a very high point of a tundra trees can not survive because of the low oxygen level due to the hight altitude. Only large herbivores live here like caribou or musk oxen because of the large vegetation and the size of the animal that helps it keep in heat.
