Do Now

What do you think of when you think of polar bears? You probably imagine them in a snow-covered setting. Why don’t polar bears live in the desert?

biome a large area characterized by its climate and the plants and animals that live in the area
Biome –a large area characterized by its climate and the plants and animals that live in the area.

Biomes and Ecosytems are NOT the same!

Biomes

Only refers to a VERY LARGE AREA

Ecosystems

Can refer to a

small area to a very large area

However, BOTH biomes and ecosystems have biotic and abiotic factors!

Land Biomes

1. Temperate Deciduous Forest

2. Coniferous Forest

3. Tropical Rain Forests

4. Temperate Grassland

Savannas

Deserts

Tundra

forest biomes found in areas that have mild temperature and plenty of rain
Forest Biomes-found in areas that have mild temperature and plenty of rain

Three types of Forest Biome

Deciduous forest

Coniferous forest

Tropical Rainforest

temperate deciduous forests
Temperate Deciduous Forests

Animals that live in

Temperate Deciduous Forests are bears, snakes, woodpeckers.

Climate

Average Yearly Rainfall

29.5 to 49 inches

Average Temperature:

Summer: 82 F

Winter: 43F

Deciduous means “to fall off”

Leaves change color, leaves fall off

Deciduous trees shed their leaves to save water during the winter or during the dry season.

coniferous forests
Coniferous Forests

Conifers produce seeds in cones. They have special leaves that are shaped like needles. The leaves have a thick, waxy coating.

Evergreen trees – trees that stay green all year long and do not lose all of their leaves

Average Yearly Rainfall:

14 to 29.5 inches

Average Temperature:

Summer: 57 F Winter 14 F

Animals that live in Coniferous Forests are: squirrels, insects, deer, moose, porcupines

tropical rain forests

Animals that live in

Tropical Rain Forests are birds (over 1,400 species ), butterflies, monkeys

Tropical Rain Forests

Climate

Average Yearly Rainfall

Up to 157.5 inches

Average Temperature:

Summer: 93 F

Winter: 68F

Have more kinds of plants and animals than any other land biome. Some animals live on the ground but most live in the canopy or treetops.

Soil is thin and poor so roots of trees are above-ground and vines grow up the tree trunks to reach the light.

temperate grasslands
Temperate Grasslands

Include grasses and other flowering plants, have few trees

Fires, drought, and grazing prevent the growth of trees and shrubs.

Climate

Average Yearly Rainfall

10 to 29.5 inches

Average Temperature:

Summer: 86 F

Winter: 32F

Animals that live in

Temperature Grasslands are: prairie dogs, mice, bison

savannas
Savannas

A grassland that has scattered clumps of trees and seasonal rain

Found in Africa, India, and South America

Climate

Average Yearly Rainfall

59 inches

Average Temperature:

Dry Season: 93 F

Wet Season: 61F

Animals that live in

Savannas are:

Zebras, elephants, giraffes and wildebeests.

deserts
Deserts

A biome that is very dry and very hot. Plants and animals have special adaptations to live in the dry, hot climate.

Climate

Average Yearly Rainfall

LESS than 10 inches

Average Temperature:

Summer: 100 F

Winter: 45F

Animals that live in

Deserts are:

Snakes, spadefoot toad, desert tortoises

tundra
Tundra

Biome that is a treeless plain with very cold temperatures and little rainfall

Found in the Arctic, Antarctic, or on the tops of mountains

Two types: POLAR TUNDRA and ALPINE TUNDRA

Average Yearly Rainfall:

12 to 20 inches

Average Temperature:

Summer: 54 F Winter -15 F

Animals that live in Tundra are: caribou, insects, birds, musk, oxen, wolves
