Chaparral By Hannah, Kayla, Shamalee Found in only 5 regions of the world I’d pay attention to this if I were you Summer: Winter: mild hot Moist (not rainy) dry + 30-100 degrees F 17 inches rain/yr •Seeds lie dormant until fire •Hairy leaves collect moisture from air •Obligate resprouters use root systems •Obligate seeders destroyed in fire depend on seedlings to replace them Common Plants •Include scrub oaks, chamiso shrubs, pines, cork and olive trees •Shrubbery everywhere •Primary producers Common Animals Black tailed jack rabbit, aardwold, golden jackal, grey fpx, puma, wild goat Desert/grassland type Food Chain https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5y3FkMl KXyA&list=PLKlxUXcezPlZHAcGxRwD9xrFx U8wPbygw&index=3 Threats Cutting down trees=no shelter Human activities Animal Adaptations Temperature changes Rough terrain Scarce food supplies after drought Nocturnal=too hot during the day Abiotic Factors Mild winters Hot & dry summers Fires Nutrient poor soil Rocks Sunlight Symbiotic Relationships Predator--Prey Commensalism Competition Mutualism Keystone Species What do these little creatures do? Ecological services Shrubbery Ease storm water runoff Reduce erosion Keep streams clean Resource Partitioning Introducing new species will result in coexistence Economic services Source of cleaner water for community Portrays where worst fires are Were you paying attention? If you wanted to live in this biome, when would you need to sleep? What are the winter climate like compared to the summer climate? Give one example of an animal that occupies this biome. What threatens this biome? What is a commonly occurs in this biome that plants and animals have to adapt to?
