Tundra biome

Did you know that the Arctic Tundra is the world's youngest biome? It was formed 10,000 years ago. Located at latitudes 55° to 70° North, the tundra is a vast and treeless land which covers about 20% of the Earth's surface, circumnavigating the North pole. It is usually very cold, and the land is pretty stark. Almost all


are located in the Northern Hemisphere. Small tundra-like areas do exist in Antarctica in the Southern Hemisphere, but because it is much colder than the Arctic, the ground is always covered with snow and ice. Conditions are not right for a true tundra to form. Average annual temperatures are -70°F (-56°C).

The North American tundra is located at latitudes 60° to 85° North and longitudes 55° to160° West which includes northern parts of Canada and the state of Alaska. The tundra is a cold barren wasteland that includes snow, rocks and very little variety in vegetation. It is in this place where the Arctic fox is found.


Desert biome

In this report you will learn about Hot and Dry Deserts and Cold Deserts. I hope you enjoy!

A Hot and Dry Desert is, as you can tell from the name, hot and dry. Most Hot and Dry Deserts don't have very many plants. They do have some low down plants though. The only animals they have that can survive have the ability to burrow under ground. This is because they would not be able to live in the hot sun and heat. They only come out in the night when it is a little cooler.

A cold desert is a desert that has snow in the winter instead of just dropping a few degrees in temperature like they would in a Hot and Dry Desert. It never gets warm enough for plants to grow. Just maybe a few grasses and mosses. The animals in Cold Deserts also have to burrow but in this case to keep warm, not cool. That is why you might find some of the same animals here as you would in the Hot and Dry Deserts.

The Coyote has a tan coat mixed with hairs of rusty brown and gray, and the ends of the hair may be black. The different colors help to hide the coyote in the underbrush, rocks, and grasses. The coyote has large, pointed ears and a bushy tail. Coyotes are known for their sharp eyesight, keen hearing and a keen sense of smell.


Marine/aquatic biome

The deepest part of the ocean is called

the abyssal zone

. it is host to many species of invertebrates and fish including such oddities as the


, a prehistoric fish once thought extinct and found in the depths of the Indian Ocean, and other fish that glow in the dark via a process called photoluminescence.


The abyssal zone is very cold, and highly pressurized.  Its floor features vents formed by spreading tectonic plates which release hydrogen sulfide and 

other minerals which are consumed by the bacteria which are then consumed by other micro-organisms, which are in turn, consumed by the fish, and so on.


Polar biome

One of the most unique biomes is found in the Arctic Ocean and the water around Antarctica.  The Polar Ice biome is a marine biome that is rich in nutrients from the land around them, and contain ice.  This makes the perfect environment for plankton, and plankton fuel the surrounding ecosystem.



Temperate forest biome

The Latin word "Deciduous" means "to fall off"  There for, a temperate deciduous forest is a forest that is not hot nor cold and has leaves that fall off in Autumn.   These trees lose their leaves in order to conserve water.  A Temperate Deciduous Forest contains numerous species of trees and hundreds of species of animals. 

Average Rainfall: 29.5 inches

Average Temperatures in Summer: 82.4° F

Average Temperatures in Winter: 42.8°F

Animals in these forests are so high in quantity that the my website server would crash before I listed all of them.  There is a very diverse population, all adapted to survive the season changes.  Examples of animals include cardinals, deer, black rat snake, opossum, mice,







Grass land biome

The Bald Eagle is the national bird of the United States of America. It is considered a sea eagle that has a white head. It is large and strong and weighs eight to twelve pounds. Their wingspan can be two meters (seven feet) and they can be larger than a meter from head to tail. The Bald Eagle has a curved beak which is large and very strong. It's toes have talons which are very strong claws. They have excellent vision which helps them to hunt.

In the middle of North America is a huge area of land which was once covered with grasses and colorful wild flowers. The French called the rolling plains of grass "prairie", from the word for a meadow grazed by cattle. The prairies are a type of grassland dominated by herbaceous plants and grasses. Very few trees grow on the prairies and are usually widely scattered.


Rainforest biome

The tropical rain forest is a forest of tall trees in a region of year-round warmth. An average of 50 to 260 inches (125 to 660 cm.) of rain falls yearly.

Rain forests belong to the tropical wet climate group. The temperature in a rain forest rarely gets higher than 93 °F (34 °C) or drops below 68 °F (20 °C); average humidity is between 77 and 88%; rainfall is often more than 100 inches a year. There is usually a brief season of less rain. In monsoonal areas, there is a real dry season. Almost all rain forests lie near the equator.

It was always thought that there were two species of elephant in the world; the African savanna elephant,(




and the Asian elephant, (


maximus). But now, through DNA testing, it has been discovered that there is a third species; the African forest elephant.
