Deserts usually get less than 25 cm of precipitation annually. Grasslands contain few trees per hectare. Why do prairies occur where they occur? Tropical Rainforest Temperate forest 10 Section 3. When we observe the temperature and the precipitation of the two biomes we can make some conclusions as to what type of animals live there.
In our local biome we can observe that there is more rain in the summer months. Although they have similar qualities, the two climatograms also have many distinct differences. After looking at the differences and similarities in the two closley related biomes, we will now look at some differences between the tropical rainforest biome and the desert biome.
This is a graph that shows the climate of a region.
The axis on the right is for precipitation. They should be able to survive or be dormant during extreme cold tempratures in the winter months. Development: Indirect Instruction: Inquiry Explanation We have learned that biomes are characterized by their biotic and abiotic factors.
Life in the grassland 21 Section 3. This is called a double-y graph because there are two Y-axes. Life in the temperate forest 23 Section 3.
