Deserts are areas where there is a shortage of water and low rainfall. There are two main types - Hot and Cold. Deserts are harsh environments and they don't support large settlement.

RAINFOREST
Mountain Environments are the highest areas on Earth and are found on all continents and latitudes. They are mild to cold with steep to rugged land. Some mountain regions are subject to natural hazards such as volcanoes, earthquakes and avalanches.
MOUNTAINS
Tundra Environments are between 0 and 10 degrees celsius. Vegetation is small and ground hugging. Trees can't grow because of the permafrost.
TUNDRA
Polar Environments
are located inside the Arctic and the Antarctic. They are very cold with little or no vegetation. They are sparsely populated by people but home
to many animals.

Savanna
- which have a few trees and a hot climate and
Temperate
- which has more rainfall and makes valuable farming land.
GRASSLANDS
Coastal Environments include hinterlands, islands, beaches and estuaries.
COASTS
River Environments flow through different environments into the sea. Settlements occur along rivers because they provide fresh water and transport routes.
RIVER
Coral Reefs are made up of a variety of species including corals, algae and sponges. They are located in the tropical waters within 30 degrees north and south of the equator.
CORAL REEFS
Rainforest Environments need constantly wet conditions. There are three types.
