Presentation Transcript


1. Biome Review

2. Aquatic Biomes Estuaries Semi – enclosed areas where rivers flow into the ocean. Because rivers carry a large amount of sediments and nutrients, they are extremely fertile areas. Oysters, young fish, crabs and more thrive here.

3. Intertidal Zone An area of the ocean between the high-tide mark and the low-tide mark. Always changing with the tides, so organisms living here must be able to adapt rapidly. Sand dollars, sea gulls, barnacles, hermit crabs, and more thrive in this biome.

4. Neritic Zone Near-shore part of the ocean that extends out over the continental shelf. Relatively stable, it is teaming with life. Coral reefs are found here, homes for corals, seaweeds, fish, starfish, sharks, sponges, octopi, and more.

5. Land Biomes Tundra Cold, dry, mostly treeless land biome that encircles the Arctic Ocean. Most of the soil remains frozen year round so plants, such as grasses, mosses and small shrubs, are short plants with shallow roots. Animals are adapted to survive long winters and short breeding seasons. Lemmings, caribou, polar bears, and various birds and insects live here.

6. Temperate Deciduous Forest A biome with a temperate climate and is characterized by deciduous trees. Trees that drop their leaves each year. Some of these trees include oaks, hickories, and elms. There is a large variety of tree-dwelling species, such as woodpeckers, squirrels, and owls.

7. Tropical Rain Forest Warm, wet biomes that have more biodiversity than any other ecosystem in the world. More than 100 different kinds of trees can be found. Thousands of different species of birds, bats, insects, monkeys. All of these species are able to live directly or indirectly off of the wide variety of plant life.

8. Grasslands Biomes in which the main types of plants are grasses. Soil is usually deep and fertile, but the climate is often too dry to support a forest. Animals such as bison, antelope, gophers, rabbits.

9. Desert Dry environments that generally receive less than 25 cm of rain annually. Some support no plant life at all, others support cacti and other water-conserving plants. Lizards, snakes, spiders, scorpions, camels and jack rabbits can be found here.
