Make your own free website on
Biome research...

Use the links to the websites below and do a comparison between any two biomes. Include temperature and precipitation, as well as plant and animal types WITH any adaptations they use to survive their environment. Choose one animal and one plant from each biome and speculate on whether it could survive in the other biome you chose - and explain why.

Once you have completed that,
go to the web sites below the questions to be answered and research the biome associated with the number of the computer at which you are sitting. Make sure you answer all the questions below, you may have to visit more than one website in order to find the information you need.

You may use information from websites other than the ones I have linked ONLY IF you cite them. If you do not cite them, I will not accept your answer. Do not use Wiki as a source.

The computer number and the Biome specific to that computer is listed below the web links near the bottom of today's assignment.

(Computer #1 does Biome #1, Computer #2 does Biome #2, etc.)

You may either write or type the report, answering the questions below. This will take a while, so plan your time wisely and be prepared to have the finished product tomorrow by the end of class.

For the biome you are assigned answer each of the following:

1) List the World Locations where is it found.

2) What are the Physical Characteristics (Physical Nature of the Biome) - what does it Look like?

3) List the Inhabitants, both Autotrophs (Producers, Plants) and Heterotrophs(Consumers, Animals)

4) List any Special Names for your Biome; Example Tropical Rain Forest is often called a Jungle. These may depend on Country or Location.

5) List the Average Climate of Biome

6) List the Average Yearly Precipitation of the Biome

7) List the Soil Type of the Biome

8) List any Biome Subdivisions (plants and animals in the subdivisions) -- show major predators, show animals found only in this biome.

9) What Human Impact is found in your Biome?

10) List any interesting facts about your Biome you may find.

11) List special adaptations that enable plants and animals to survive in that particular Biome

12) List the percentage of land which the biome occupies worldwide.
