Land Biomes

7th Grade Life Science

Biome A region of Earth where the climate determines the types of plants (flora) and animals (fauna) live there.
Desert This biome is very dry. The plants and animals that live here have adapted to an environment that hardly has water.
Grasslands This biome has grasses and very few trees. Tropical Grasslands like the savanna have high temperatures year around, whereas Temperate Grasslands (North American prairie) have some precipitation and hot summers and cold winters.
Tundra This biome has low temperatures and very little precipitation. The soil has a permanently frozen layer called "permafrost".
Taiga This biome is also known as the Boreal forest. Has low temperatures but more precipitation. Many coniferous trees, like the evergreen live here.
Temperate Forest This biome is split into 2 kinds; temperate deciduous forest and temperate rain forest. The "TDF" has some preciptation and hot summer/cold winters, with deciduous trees. The "TRF" has a long, cool wet "rainy" season, and a dry summer. Coniferous trees!
Tropical Rain Forest This biome is located near Earth's equator. The temperature is warm the entire year. It also receives the most rain than any other biome.
Climate Describes the long-term patterns of temperature and precipitation in a region.
Abiotic Nonliving (Abiotic factors in a biome include; soil, sunlight ,water, and rocks)
Biotic Living (Biotic factors in a biome include the bugs, animals, plants, trees, and grass.)
