Biomes Desert Organisms must be adapted to little or no rain and to extreme temperatures to be able to live in the desert.
Biomes How would you fill in the Venn Diagram with what you know about temperate and tropical rain forests?
Biomes Rain-Forest Biomes Rain forests are forests in which large amounts of rain fall year-round. Very little sunlight reaches the ground.
Biomes Tropical Rain Forests What are the four distinct layers of the tropical rain forest?
Biomes Grassland Biomes On the world map, identify the continents which the Rhea, Cassowary, and Ostrich inhabit.
Biomes Deciduous Forest Biomes Most of the trees in a deciduous forest have leaves that change color and drop to the forest floor each autumn.
Biomes Boreal Forest Biomes Tree species in the boreal forest are well adapted to the cold climate. Because the water is frozen for much of the year, coniferous trees have thick, waxy needles to prevent water loss.
Biomes Tundra Biomes Although the ground is frozen for most of the year, mosses, grasses, and dwarf willow trees grow here.
Biomes Mountains Mountains are not part of any major biome.
Biomes Biome Climates An ecologist collected climate data from two locations. The graph shows the monthly average temperatures in the two locations. The total yearly precipitation in Location A is 250 centimeters. In Location B, the total yearly precipitation is 14 centimeters.
