Transcript of Australian Chaparral biome

By: Andrew Clement Chaparral biome PLANTS: Mountain oak tree Animals: Black-tailed Jackrabbit Light Temperature The temp. in Australia is very hot and dry in the summer, and even though it's winter they still get pretty warm weather, but not too warm. For them it's freezing, but for Wisconsin in the winter it's warm. Soil The soil in Australia is very hard and rocky. Since they don't get much rainfall, they can't make the soil a little more softer. But somehow, the soil still grows little shrubs, and cactus's. Australia does have Rocky Mountain slopes too, and the Chaparrel even has their own nickname, the "Wild West." King Protea
Flower Torrey Pine tree Fairy duster
Flower Most plants in the Chaparrel need hard leaves to survive the warm summers with very little water. Australia does have residential areas so she should bring some cash with her to shop. She is going to spend 1 year there, so she only gets $200 of cash to buy water and food. She won't worry about food or water for a while though because she will be staying with Adam Scott at his house for 8 months so don't worry Mrs. Fulfer he is filthy rich, so your house will be awesome! Mrs. Fulfer Puma Wild goat Spotted skunk Golden Jackal (fox) In summer some small animals like spotted skunk find shade under big hard trees, like the mountain oak, but in Australia you don't find many of those. But the small animals find a lot of shrubs though. This makes the animals less hot, and gives them shelter. Mrs. Fulfer needs 2 knives. But most of Adelaide chapparal is shrubs to make a fire every night for 4 months. Some animals are eatable sounds gross, that's why you need knives, you can eat the wild goat, puma, Jackrabbit and many more. Anyways you need many sticks to make the fire, and she will roast the meat on the fire. Although she can use the food she bought too. Mrs. Fulfer In Australia they get sunlight all year long, and because of that their summers are very hot (100 degrees). But at night when the sun goes down it can get as cold as 30 degrees. Mrs. Fulfer is going to get hot in the day from 11 am to 5 pm. But at the very beginning of the day like 5 or 6 am it's very cold. In the late night she needs to bring a big sweatshirt because it is cold at night. But she also needs to bring flashlight for the night because there are little tiny creatures that want to bit her in the night that are poisonous. Mrs. Fulfer In the winter, when she is kicked out of Adam Scott's house, she needs to bring a tent to keep the cold wind off her in the night of the winter. There isn't much rainfall so she has to relie on keeping her water cold in the tent, or at night she can keep the water outside in the cold, but makes sure no animals get it. Mrs. Fulfer It's going to be nearly impossible to grow her flowers in the hard rocky sand in Australia so she might as well just leave her gardening tools back at home. Mrs. Fulfer Adelaide, Australia doesn't get much rain fall each year, they get about 10-18 inches of rainfall each year!! That is why most plants in the chaparral have very hard leaves, so they can survive with little water. The most rain Australia gets is in the winter, about 8 to 11 inches. Water Mrs. Fulfer will need to bring about 2 full backpacks of water with cold hard ice. It will be hard for her to find water, but just in case she wants to save her water from home, she will bring a litter bottle for the rain. If it rains it will go into the bottle and she will put the bottle in the ice and that will be how she saves water.
