  1. A) tundra, taiga, grasslands, deciduous forest, chaparral, desert, desert-scrub, savanna, rainforest, and alpine

    Explanation:

    I just took the quiz and that was the correct answer 🙂

  2. Answer no 1)

    Biome1: Desert

    Organism 1: Camels

    1) This population can be found in an ecosystem which is dry and do not have grass or much plants. Large trees are unable to grow in such a land. Also, the water available is limited in such a land.

    2) The population of camels might suddenly increase if more water and food becomes available on this land. Camels feed on grass, grains etc. We can increase the supply of these to increase its population.

    3) If the population of the camels is removed, then the desert ecosystem will become unstable.

    Answer No 2)

    Biome 2: Taiga

    Organism 2: Fox

    1) This population is usually found in forest where there is abundant supply of different species of animals and plants. Also, needle leaved trees are more abundant in this biome.

    2) The fox has a number of preys in which it can feed. Foxes can fees on birds, other mammals, some reptiles etc. If the population of a prey is increased, the population of the foxes might also increase. This will cause a disturb in an stable ecosystem.

    3) If the population of foxes were removed, then the population of the prey organisms will increase. The ecosystem will become unstable.

  3. Answer;

    The order of the Biomes from the coldest to the hottest

    -tundra ; It is the coldest of all the biomes

    -taiga ; It is a land dominated by conifers, especially spruces and firs. It is dotted with lakes, bogs, and marshes.

    -temperate deciduous forest ; The average rainfall is 30 to 60 inches a year.

    -temperate grassland ;The annual precipitation in the grasslands averages 20 inches (~51 cm) per year.

    -temperate woodland (chaparral) ; The annual rainfall in the chaparral biome may reach 20–30 inches (64–76 cm)

    Savanna; also known as the tropical grass land; the average temperatures are about -20°C to 30°C

    -tropical rain forest;An annual rainfall of as much as 150 inches (381 cm) produces a lush forest of conifers.

    -desert ; Annual rainfall in the desert is less than 10 inches (25 cm) and, in some years, may be zero.

  4. Taiga

    Explanation:Taiga, generally referred to in North America as boreal forest or snow forest, is a biome characterized by coniferous forests consisting mostly of pines, spruces, and larches. The taiga or boreal forest is the world's largest land biome.

  5. 1.)Desert biome is the driest biome in the world, it only receives 10% of rainfall a year. Its plants and animals have to survive in an environment with little water and dramatic temperature changes from day to night.

    2.)Tropical rainforest covers about ⅓ of the earth's land surface. They are dominates by trees and contains many different plants and animals. It takes in the carbon dioxide that we exhale and gives off the oxygen we breathe in, making them really important to our survival.

    3.) Tundra is the treeless plain. Trees cannot survive in this biome because of the cold temperatures, high winds, and heavy snowfall, as well as the permafrost, a layer of permanently frozen soil.

    4.) Grassland biome is filled with grasses, the length of the grass and the number of trees vary depending on the amount of rainfall.

    4.) Temperate deciduous forest are the ones that periodically shed their leaves, grows in well watered parts of the temperate zone in which a long, warm growing season alternates with a cold winter. Precipitation, as either rain or snow tends to fall throughout the year.

  6. C. taiga, temperate deciduous forest, savanna

    Explanation:

    The Taiga, also called the Coniferous Forest or Boreal Forest, represents a type of vegetation typical of the high altitudes found in the northern hemisphere of the globe more precisely between the Tundra and the Temperate Forest. The occurrence of Taiga is typical of the temperate and Antarctic zones of the globe, so it is located in the regions of subarctic (subpolar) climate, that is, basically very cold (low temperatures) and dry (low humidity).

    Temperate deciduous forest is a biome found in central Europe, southern Australia, Chile, east Asia, mainly in Korea, Japan, and some parts of China and the eastern United States. Temperate forests have a temperate climate, with the four seasons well defined. Summer is hot and humid, while winter is cold and may have snow.

    Savannas correspond to a type of vegetation cover, formed predominantly by undergrowth, such as grasses, herbs, shrubs and sparse trees. Savannas are generally flat biomes found almost anywhere on the planet: on the African, American and Oceanian continents. The predominant climate in the savannas is predominantly tropical, with two seasons one dry and one wet, located in the intertropical zone of the planet, which receives strong solar incidence throughout the year. With an average annual temperature between 22 - 24ºC, in some places it can reach 40ºC.

    If we were to rank these three biomes in order, from the lowest average temperatures to the highest average temperatures, the order would be:  taiga, temperate deciduous forest, savanna
