Go to this website – there are other biomes other than the ones we have been looking at!
Look at this Biome Pyramid … can you make sense of the clues here?
PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW ABOUT THIS!
It is your duty to tell the world! What information should you tell them? What can you do to let the world know this important information?
Come up with a plan of action, and DO IT!!!
(Here’s a clue…. your blog MUST be involved!)
(Here’s another clue… you CANNOT tell people to just look up the website!)
Biomes are very large ecological areas on the earth’s surface, with fauna (animals) and flora (plants) adapting to their environment.
Biomes are often defined by factors such as climate, relief, geology, soils and vegetation. A biome is NOT an ecosystem, although in a way it can look like a massive ecosystem. If you take a closer look, you will notice that plants or animals in any of the biomes have special adaptations that make it possible for them to exist in that area. You may find many units of ecosystems within one biome.
There are five major categories of biomes on earth. In these five, there are many smaller biomes (or sub-biomes), under which are many more well defined ecosystems.
Let us find out what kinds of biomes there are:
