MY BIOMES PROJECT

By Alexander Wells

DESERT

The desert is a very hot and dry place. Not much rainfall either. The rainfall can get less than 50 cm/year. Not many animals live in the desert. The animals that live inthe desert are scorpions,kangaroo mice,African Wild Dog,Arabian Wildcat, Armadillos and a whole bunch others. The plantsthat live in the desert are cactus,mesquite, desert spoon,and aloe. Most large deserts are found away from the coasts.

Most tundras are found in the northern hemisphere. And the climate can drop to-94f and it also where its windy and rainfall is scant. Animals that live in the tundra are caribou polar bear, usk ox, arctic hares and arctic foxes. The types of plants that live in the tundra are mosses,lichen, grasses and shrubs.

TUNDRA

Rainforests are found along coasts in temperate regions and also can be found near the equator.The average temperature in tropical rainforests ranges from 70 to 85°F. One type of plant often found in a rainforest is an epiphyte, mosses, ferns and orchids. Animals that are found in the tropical rain forests are leopards, jaguars, birds, reptiles and amphibians birds. Tropical rainforests are home to half the plant and animal species on Earth.

These rainforests can be found in temperate regions (Oceanic - Moist Climates) of North America, South America, Europe, East Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.The element of climate in the temperate rain forest is precipitation.The precipitation can fall in the form of rain or snow.Big coniferous trees dominate this habitat, including Douglas fir and Western red cedar, Mountain hemlock, Western hemlock, Sitka spruce and Lodgepole pine.The animals that live there are deer, bears,Roosevelt elks, and pacific tree frogs.

It extends in a broad band across North America, Europe, and Asia to the southern border of the arctic tundra. Long cold winters, and short, mild, wet summers are typical of this region. The plants that live in the taiga are pines, spruces and firs. The animals that live in the taiga are squirrels, jay, moles, deer, moose and elk.

GRASS LANDS

Grasslands are found in most ecoregions of the Earth.Temperate grasslands are characterized as having grasses as the dominant vegetation.Grasslands have hot summers and cold winters,rainfall is moderate.The animals include gazelles, zebras, rhinoceroses, wild horses, lions, wolves, prairie dogs, jack rabbits, deer, mice, coyotes, foxes, skunks, badgers, blackbirds, grouses, meadowlarks, quails, sparrows, hawks, owls, snakes, grasshoppers, leafhoppers, and spiders. The plants that grow here are grass,bushes,and shrubs.

The climate here is always changing from cold to warm. And the plants that live here are grass, moss,t rees, flowers and bushes. The animals that live here are deer,bears, beavers, ground hogs, squirrels, and chipmunks. Deciduous biomes are located primarily in the eastern half of the United States, Canada, Europe, parts of Russia, China, and Japan. The average temperature of the forest is about 50 degrees F. The average amount of rainfall in the forest is 30 to 60 inches a year.
