Biomes

There are many different biomes, one of them being the tundra. The tundra biome is an ecosystem situated near the North Pole in the Artic Circle. It is by far the coldest of all biomes. The winters are extremely cold with temperatures typically below -34° C. The summers last only about two months and the temperatures are still very cold ranging from 3° to 12° C.

Another biome is the Taiga. The taiga biome is the largest terrestrial biome and extends across Europe, North America, and Asia. It is located right below the tundra biome. The taiga biome is also known as coniferous forest. This biome typically has short, wet summers and long, cold winters.

Another is the Deciduous forest. The temperate deciduous forest is characterized by its leaf-shedding trees and its seasons. This biome experiences all four seasons - winter, spring, summer, and fall. The temperate deciduous forest is located in the United States, Canada, Europe, China, and Japan.

Another is the Chaparral biome. The chaparral biome is a part of each continent and consists of various types of terrain This biome is characterized by having both forests and grassland.

Another is the Grassland biome. Grassland biomes are large, rolling terrains of grasses, flowers and herbs. Latitude, soil and local climates for the most part determine what kinds of plants grow in a particular grassland. A grassland is a region where the average annual precipitation is great enough to support grasses, and in some areas a few trees.

Another is the desert biome. The desert biome is an ecosystem that forms due to the low level of rainfall it receives each year. Deserts cover about 20% of the Earth. They are all able to inhabit plant and animal life that are able to survive there.

Another is the tropical rain forest. The tropical rain forest is a forest of tall trees in a region of year-round warmth. An average of 50 to 260 inches (125 to 660 cm.) of rain falls yearly. Rain forests belong to the tropical wet climate group.

Finally, there is the temperate rainforest. Temperate rainforests have two distinct seasons. Temperature rarely goes above 27°C and 80°F, this tells us why this biome is called a temperate rainforest .
