Land Biome Mind-Map

The picture on the top is a Mind-Map is about Biome. Red boxes is for Important and main idea. The blue box is the examples and other things are facts about it.

 

Biome is and interdependent system of plants, animal and land. It is also a large region with similar ecosystems. Temperature, rainfall and altitude all decide what type of plant and animal life a biome can support. A place called Utah consists mainly of the desert biome. These plants, animal and land each evolved to become specially adapted to their environment. If you move an animal or a plant out of it’s biome, it might not survive. There are countless species of plants and animal living on Earth.

 

All of these species live in different biomes. Subartic Taiga has cool summers and cold winters. Evergreen trees grow and the soil is rocky. At Tundra, it is very cold at all time. Soil is frozen all year round, so not much can grow besides lichen and moss. Temperate Forests are found in areas in mid-latitude. It has a moderate rain and the four season. Oak and maple trees grow here, and the soil is very fertile. Deserts get less than 10 centimeter of rain each year. It is very hot all day and cold at night. Grassland or savannas are found in areas like Central Africa. It has a hot rainy season and a cold dry season. Rainforests are in areas along the equator. Over 150 centimeters of rainfall each year. It is humid and hot like Hong Kong.

 

Different biomes been around thousands of years but change time to time. For example, Icy glaciers once covered most of North America. Before, It was covered by a shallow sea. It takes millions of years and the plant and animal have time to adapt they need to adapt. But because of the human activity, it has changed everything. Humans can change a biome overnight by cutting down trees, throwing up buildings and polluting the water. Without the proper habitat to support, plants and animals can become extinct. If people knew how fast forests can become deserts, they might think twice before messing with our more fragile environment.
