Biome Project

taiga biome location and climate
Taiga Biome Location and Climate
  • The taiga biome is located in the northern part of the globe, below the tundra biome. It covers most of Canada and Russia, as well as the Scandinavian area. The climate in the winter is freezing cold and it is almost always snowing. In the summer it is humid and rainy. The fall and spring seasons are so short they hardly exist. Temperature ranges in the summer get as low as 20° F, The high in summer can be 70° F. The winter temperature range is -65° Fto 30° F.
taiga biome plants and animals
Taiga Biome Plants and Animals
  • American Black Bear Bobcat Balsam Fir
  • Wolverine Snowshoe Rabbit Black Spruce
  • Bald Eagle Shrew Douglas Fir
  • Gray Wolf Grizzly Bear Eastern Red Cedar
  • Red Fox Squirrels Jack Pine
  • Canadian Lynx Paper Birch White Spruce
  • River Otter Siberian Spruce White Poplar
  • Moose White Fir
  • Elk Caribou
taiga limiting factors and adaptations
Taiga Limiting Factors and Adaptations
  • Limiting factors for the taiga would be the long and dreary winters, with temperatures almost never getting above freezing, therefore it limits the source of food for the organisms and makes survival harder. Also logging would be a limiting factor as it limits the living space for the organisms.
  • Adaptations would be most animals migrate to warmer climates once the cold weather begins. Some animals have adapted to life in the taiga by hibernating when temperatures drop. Other animals have adapted to the extreme cold temperatures by producing a layer of insulating feathers or fur to protect them from the cold. In some instances, the adaptation of a seasonal change in color of feathers or fur protects the animal from its predators.
symbiotic relationship
Symbiotic Relationship
  • Predation- An example of predation would be the red fox eating the snowshoe rabbit.
  • Commensalism- An example of commensalism would be when the Bald Eagle nests in the Black Spruce.
  • Predation- An example of Predation would be the gray wolf eating the caribou.
coral reef biome location and climate
Coral Reef Biome Location and Climate
  • Coral reefs are found in shallow water areas. Where sea surface temperatures range from 68° F to 97° F.More than 90 percent of the world’s coral reefs occur in the Indo-West Pacific biogeographic region. Reef systems also can be found in the West Atlantic, East Atlantic, and East Pacific oceans between 30° N and 30° S. Most reef species are endemic to the region in which they are found.
coral reefs animals and plants
Coral Reefs Animals and Plants
  • Angel Shark Gastropods Lobster
  • Bivalves Hermit Crab Man of War
  • Puffer fish Horseshoe Crab Moray eel
  • Brittle Star Jellyfish Nurse Shark
  • Conch John Dory Octopus
  • Coral Krill Stingray
  • Crab Lemon Shark Sea Urchin
symbiotic relationship1
Symbiotic Relationship
  • Predation- An example of predation in coral reefs would be the Octopus eating the John Dory Fish
  • Commensalism- An example of commensalism would be the clown fish and the sea anemone.
  • Parasitism- An example of parasitism would be the isopods feeding on the fish’s.
