  1. Freshwater Biome Nicole McCombs Nilda Ruiz

  2. Freshwater Biome Features • Low salt concentration • Sizes are different • Still Water/Flowing Water • .08% of water available to planet • Location of freshwater sources plays a key role in determining the biodiversity in biome • Drinking Water and food • Pollution

  3. Species Diversity: Plants • High • Pediastrumboryanum; unicellular or multicellular, membrane bound nuclei & chloroplast • Macrocystispyrifera; largest of all algae, fast-growing, can grow 45 meters • Nymphaeaodorata; leaves are around, very fragrant, prominent yellow stems and white pedals

  4. Species Diversity: Animals • SalmoTrutta; medium-sized fish, growing 20kg, freshwater fish, rivers and streams • Chrysemyspicta; shell is oval, long, and flat bottomed, top shell varies in color • Hippopotamus amphibius; 1,400 to 3,200 kilograms, lifespan is 40-50 years, large, Order Artiodactyla

  5. Temperature & Precipitation Range • Temperature range: 4° C to 22° C during summer, 4° C to 0° C during winter • Precipitation Range: About 10 to 80 inches of rainfall per year; some reach 100+ inches

  6. Quality • Colorful in plants species and environment • Neat • Pollution threatens biome
