World Biomes

By: Ashley and Brandt

slide2

Arctic Biome

Many animals have adapted to this frozen environment

70% of Earths fresh water is trapped in the frozen content of Antarctica.

climate

Every year the Arctic gets hotter, because of global warming

  • The ice barely ever breaks off
  • Global warming melts permafrost
  • A season is 6-12 weeks long, there are only 2 seasons
Climate
temperature and rainfall

Baron ice land is dry

  • In the winter the temperature gets to -50oF
  • In the summer the temperature can get to be 40oF
  • In the arctic the temperature gets hotter every year because of global warming
  • 2-10 inches of snow a year
Temperature and Rainfall
plants

Algae grows on the ice

  • Moss grows on other trees and plants
  • Birch trees
  • The little exposed soil in the arctic makes it hard for the plants to take root
Plants
animals

Star Turn

  • Propose
  • Cold Giant
  • Rabbits
  • Foxes
  • Penguin
  • Snowy Owls
  • Musk Oxen
  • Arctic Fish
  • Polar Bears
Animals
insects

The Arctic doesn’t have any insects now

  • At one time there were some insects, but all of them died do to the freezing temperature
  • And because some other animals ate them for food
  • For example a bird eats insects
Insects
landforms

Mountains are covered in snow because of the freezing temperature

  • Ice caps and glaciers can be more than a mile thick, and can be more lethal than most animals in the biome
  • One planet that has ice caps and glaciers is Mars
Landforms
conclusion

This has been the ice biome. I hope you all learned a new thing today. But its not over yet here are some fun facts; in the winter near the poles the sun never truly rises, and during the summer the sun never truly sets. So during the winter it is mainly dark, and during the summer it is always light outside.
