Pantelleria. . . . Click on the Biomes to learn more!!. Grassland. M. arine. Tundra. Forest. Fresh Water. Desert. Desert Biome. This biome is the driest; it only receives 50cm of rainfall a year about 10% of the rainfall in the rainforest. Its plants and animals have to survive in an environment with little water and dramatic temperature changes from day to night. Some animals and plants may find if difficult to adapt, but reptiles and cacti thrive in these conditions..
Designed by Christopher Becker,. Joeie. Puckett, Michael . Ruthenberg. ,. and . Satura. Thomas. A . Webquest. for 4. th. Grade. Introduction. Biomes are defined as "the world's major communities, classified according to the predominant vegetation and characterized by adaptations of organisms to that particular environment" (.
Chapter Seven. Most of the year the desert looks lifeless.. But when rainy season comes, the land explodes with life.. Plants and animals hurry to feed, grow and reproduce.. When the rain is done life seems to disappear again, until the next rainy season..
Vocabulary . Climate zone- an area that has similar average temperature and precipitation throughout. . Equator- an imaginary line that divides Earth into the northern and southern hemispheres. Latitude- a measure of how far north or south a place is from the equator.

0 34.7 Current, sunlight, and nutrients are important abiotic factors in freshwater biomes Freshwater biomes cover less than 1% of the Earth, contain less than 0.01% of its water, harbor 6% of all described species, and
SIGNIFICANT IDEAS:. Climate determines the type of biome in a given area although individual ecosystems may vary due to many local abiotic and biotic factors.. Succession leads to climax communities that may vary due to random events and interactions over time. This leads to a pattern of alternative stable states for a given ecosystem..
History: . Ancient Greeks used to classify the environment into zones which had different degrees of warmth. This resulted in Aristotle describing the terrain in terms of flora and fauna. . Main characteristics and variables used to define biomes is: .
CHAPTER. Too Much of a Good Thing?. Elephant populations in southern Africa declined sharply due to hunting but have made overwhelming comebacks within nature reserves and parks.. Some worry that elephant overpopulation is causing a decline in local biodiversity and damage to farms and infrastructure..
Explain how biomes are characterized. Describe how net primary production varies among biomes. Explain how organisms are adapted to the conditions of their biomes. Describe the criteria ecologist use to classify aquatic systems.
