This project is meant to be a culminating assignment incorporating the concepts covered in the biomes chapter – biodiversity, ecological systems, and a final focus on the human element within the biome where environmental problems & issues are concerned.   Ecologically speaking, the world can be divided into biomes, areas with characteristic climates, soils and organisms (flora & fauna).   Survival and stability within these biomes depends on the interactions of abiotic and biotic components of the ecosystem.  You should work independently to prepare a descriptive overview of one of the following biomes.  Please note that biomes are broad in scope and project requirements may necessitate focusing on a particular location or region within that biome.

 

BIOMES:(Terrestrial)

Tropical Rainforest                                   Deserts

Temperate Deciduous Forests            Grasslands

Taiga                                                           Tundra

 

Project Criteria & Evaluation:         

1. General description and introduction to biome

  • General characteristics – general descriptions of climate, soils & organism.
