Land Biomes Of the World

Tropical Rain Forest

Desert

Grassland

Temperate Forest

Boreal Forest

Tundra


Tropical Rain Forest

Tropical Rainforests

  • Climate: It rains almost everyday. Very warm (humid)

  • Consumers: Tigers, leopards, pythons, insects, spiders, tree frogs, monkeys, snakes, colorful birds, ants, firefly, orangutan, and three-toed sloth

  • Producers: more kinds of plants grow in the tropical rainforest than other biomes. Palm trees, ferns, banana leaf vines, and flowers.

  • Extra facts: located near the equator ½ of all animals on earth live in the rainforest. More tree dwelling creatures than any other biome. Insects have evolved to have lots of predator adaptation due to the numerous amount of predators.

Nocturnal
Nocturnal

  • Animals that are active at night and sleep during the day


Diurnal
Diurnal

  • Organisms active during the day and sleep at night.


Desert
Desert

Climate: Very dry, little precipitation, hot days, cool nights

Consumers: Snakes, lizards, kangaroo rats, tortoises, jackrabbits, and camels.

Producers: Very few; cacti, saguaro, yucca. Plants store water and have very small leaves and thorns.

Extra facts: Animals active during day are called diurnal. Active at night called nocturnal. Very few large animals live in the desert because large amounts of food and water are hard to find. Different types of Deserts. Sahara vs. Arizona desert

Desert



Arizona Desert = Cacti, Joshua trees,

I do not want to see a picture of a cactus next to a camel they do not live in the same Desert!


Climate: moderate to very warm most of the year, short winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.

Consumers: Antelope, badgers, prairie dogs, moles, ground squirrels, hares, gophers, & many birds.

Producers: grasses, very few trees

Extra facts: also called savannas, velds, papas, prairies, and steppes

Grassland


  • Deci winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.duousTrees -trees that drop their leaves and grow new ones each year. Leaves changecolor.

  • Video about different types of trees.

  • Coniferous Trees-(evergreens) trees that produce their seed in cones and have needle shaped leaves. They stay green all year.


  • All Bulldogs are dogs. (true) winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.

  • All Dogs are Bull dogs. (false)

  • All Conifers are Evergreens (true)

  • All Evergreens are Conifers. (false)

All Conifers are Evergreens (true)

All Evergreens are Conifers



Ccms tree observation
CCMS Tree Observation winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.

  • Hypothesis: If we walk around CCMS then we will see more __________________ trees.

  • As we walk the campus we will discuss the various trees around campus and tally up how many of each type of tree we have.


Climate: warm summers, cold winters, moist spring, winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.four seasons. Precipitation varies

Consumers: bears, deer, foxes, raccoons, opossums, squirrels, insects, and birds.

Producers: wildflowers, ferns, mosses, some evergreens, most are deciduous, such as oak, hickory, beech and maple tree. MOST OF THE TREES ARE DECIDUOUS (leaves change color in fall)

Extra Facts: leaves fall off the tree in fall therefore there is lots of dead leaves on the ground. Many animals hibernate. (video)

DeciduousForest


Boreal forest coniferous forest taiga
Boreal Forest winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.(Coniferous Forest, Taiga)

  • Climate: cold, some rain, large amounts of snow fall. Winter 6 months of the year.

  • Consumers: deer, ducks, geese, moose, mountain goats, bears, bighorn sheep, rabbits, squirrels, porcupine.

  • Producers: spruces, firs, pines, aspens, poplars, mosses, lichens, wildflowers MOST OF THE TREES ARE CONIFERS (trees with cones)

  • Extra facts: Most trees are evergreens (trees that stay green all year).

  • Video (2 minutes) Brain pop on Taiga

Tundra
Tundra winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.

  • Climate: very cold, little precipitation, snow on the ground all but two months of the year.

  • Consumers: reindeer, arctic foxes, wolves, snowy owls, hawks, eagles, falcons, lemmings, voles, marmots, mosquitoes, and flies.

  • Producers: during two summer months Mosses, grasses, shrubs, lichens NO TREES because the soil is frozen called permafrost.

  • Extra facts: very, very cold

  • Brain bop on Tundra

  • Tundra video

  • Review Video of all 6 land biomes.


Permafrost
Permafrost winters, & humid summers. Average amount of precipitation.

Permanently Frozen Soil
