Unit 2 Review Biomes Biomes • What is a biome? Biomes • Geographical area with similar climate and organisms. Biomes • Identify the biome which you live. Biomes • Temperate Deciduous Forest • 60 inches of rainfall • Four seasons. Biomes • What does biodiversity mean? Biomes • the degree of variation of life forms within a given species, ecosystem, biome, or planet. biomes • Identify the most biologically diverse terrestrial biome. biomes • Tropical Rain Forest Biomes • Identify the most biologically diverse Aquatic biome. Biomes • Neritic Zone within the Marine Biome. biomes • Which aquatic ecosystem is composed of a mix of fresh and saltwater? Biomes • Estuary Biomes • Freshwater ecosystems include what? Biomes • Lakes • Ponds • Rivers • Streams • Creeks Biomes • Saltwater ecosystems include what? Biomes • Estuary • Marine (intertidal zone, neritic zone, open ocean) Biomes • The study of where organisms live throughout the world is called. Biomes • Biogeography biomes • The movement of living organisms from place to place is called.. biomes • Dispersal (wind, water, other living things) biomes • A carnivore that feeds on already dead organisms boimes • Scavenger ( buzzard, vulture) biomes • A type of tree that seasonally loses its leaves biomes • Deciduous Tree biomes • A tree that is evergreen all year round biomes • Conifer Tree ( coniferous) biomes • Tundra has 25 cm of rain per year. • How much is this in inches? biomes • 25 cm = 10 inches Biomes • Permanently frozen soil of the tundra biomes • permafrost biomes • Location of all six terrestrial biomes starting from the equator moving up in latitude biomes • Tropical Rain Forest • Desert • Grassland • Temperate Deciduous Forest • Taiga • Tundra biomes • Biome that receives 30 inches of rainfall per year with rich fertile soil. biomes • Grassland Biomes • Name three physical or ecological barriers biomes • Mountains • Oceans • Deserts Biomes • Name four factors that control climate biomes • Altitude • Precipitation • Latitude • Temperature biomes • A physical or behavioral characteristic of any organism that helps it to survive. biomes • Adaptation biomes • The amount of energy that is transferred from one level to another in an energy pyramid. biomes • 10 % biomes • Organism that breaks down dead and decaying organisms and returns nutrients to the environment. biomes • A decomposer biomes • The typical weather in a particular area over a long period of time is called biomes • Climate biomes • Very cold and dry biome biomes • Tundra biomes • Another name for Boreal Forest biomes • Taiga (coniferous forest) • What is an adaptation for a plant that lives in the Desert Biome? • Shallow root structure • The ability to retain water • Spikes or thorns for protection. biomes • Grasslands of Africa are called biomes • Savanna biomes • A diagram that shows the amount of energy that moves from each trophic level. biomes • Energy Pyramid biomes • Adaptation of an animal that lives in the Intertidal Zone biomes • Shell Biomes • Bonus Points • List the four layers of a Tropical Rain Forest biomes • forest floor • understory • canopy • emergent What four (4) elements control Climate • 1. Precipitation • 2. Altitude • 3. Latitude • 4. Temperature
