Transcript of Biosphere

Biosphere
The biosphere is the combination of all the ecosystems on the Earth. It includes all of the living and nonliving things on Earth. The biosphere is divided into different
biomes
.

A
biome
is a group of ecosystems that have a similar climate.

Deserts
all over the world are hot and dry, and have similar plants and animals. Here we see a
North American desert
. Click the right arrow at the bottom to visit an
African desert
.
This is the Sahara desert in Africa. It is part of the desert biome. Click the right arrow at the bottom of the screen to visit an Australian desert.
This is the Simpson Desert in Southern Australia. It is part of the desert
biome
. Biomes are made up of different
ecosystems
. Click the right arrow at the bottom to continue.
Instructions:
Use the left and right arrows at the bottom of the screen to navigate the biosphere.
This is the Amazon Jungle in South America. It is part of the rainforest
biome
.
The rainforest
ecosystem
contains all of the living
(
biotic
)
and nonliving
(
abiotic

things in the jungle. Remember, a

habitat
is a place you can find on a map.
An
ecosystem
is how all of the
biotic

abiotic
things work together in the habitat.

This is the African Savanna
ecosystem

community
in this ecosystem.

Every community is made of
populations
of living things.
A population is the number of one kind of living thing in a ecosystem
