Desert Biome

Biome Project

Climate: They annual tempurature range is about 50 to 80 Degrees fahrenheit. The annual precipitaion in cm is 15 and below in a hot desert, and 15-25 in a cold desert. The seasonal changes are warm in a hot desert during fall and spring, but hot in summer. In the winter, there is very little rainfall. An extreme weather event in the desert would be having to much water.Threats to biome: off road vehicles leave tracks in soil for up to two decades, causing looser soil. This harmes animals that live in the sand, like the sand viper. A solution to this is to not allow off-road vehicles in the desert.

The tourist that visit a desert can ride a dune buggy around the desert and race them there.

Tourist Activity

Predator/Prey: The lizard is a prey and the hawk is the predator because it eats the lizard.Competative Relationship: The Hawk and fox, both compete for the lizard and rodents.

Abiotic Factors1. Sand is very dry because of little rain2. Sun (lots of sunlight because there is not a lot of vegitation)3. Salt (salt levels are high in the desert)

Producers: Cactus and Joshua Tree.the cactus' adaptation is it stores water for a long time, and very prickley.The Joshua Tree's adaptation is that the tree is turned upwards hoping to catch any moisture, and spiny leaves.

Primary Consumers: The primary consumers are Kangaroo Rats, and Jackrabbits. The jackrabbits adaptations that it releases heat from huge ears. The Kangaroo rats' adaptation is that they recycle water from foods they eat.

Secondary Consumers: the Secondary consumers are the banded sand snake, and the fringe toad lizard. The banded sand snake adaptation is that it has a shovel nose, narrow head, and very smooth. The Fringe toad lizards' adaptation is that it has pointy fringe like feet to help it run across surfaces.
