Why is temperature less of a limiting factor in water biomes than in land biomes

large amounts of water stabilize temperatures

The kind of biome that will develop in an area is determined by temperature and

Precipitation

What are forestlands with both evergreens and deciduous trees called

It is called a Mixed forest

What causes temperature extremes in the desert

The lack of humidity and lack of cloud cover cause the extremes of temperature. There is no insulation to slow the absorbing of heat during the day and nothing to hold the heat at night. Therefore, the desert can be quite hot during the day but cool off dramatically at night.

In which biome do buttress and stilt roots live in

Buttress and stilt roots are found in the rain forest biome. They like nutrient poor soil, which is what the rain forest floor has due to lack of sunlight.

What ecosystem has the most rain

rainforest

What soil is found in a temperate deciduous forest

rich, thick soil humus

Secondary succession occurs in an area where the community has been destroyed and the soil has been

preserved:) nova net

What statement describes a species that is at carrying capacity

The # of births equals # of deaths

Why are desert soils low in organic matter

There is very little topsoil in deserts; in fact, one millimeter of topsoil can take hundreds of years to form in a desert. The plant life in deserts evolved through selection to be less reliant on water and are therefore very slow to grow. Little plant life, little decay due to low moisture, and extremely slow growth rates could account for the low content of organic matter in desert soils.

What migratory routes do all migratory animals follow while migrating

migratory animals follo follow routes like through water while migrating..........................

Why don't Savannas exist in the US

Savannas do not exist in the US because there are no true tropic climates. Savannas can only be in tropic areas like Africa and some parts of Australia and South America.

Which substance is absorbed in large quantities by rain forests

Carbon Dioxide is absorbed in large quantities by rainforests. Rainforests consist primarily of trees, which absorb carbon dioxide for food.

When air moves away from the tropics and toward the poles it becomes

cool and dry

Where is seventy five percent of the earths biomass contained

Forests

An adaptation that helps trees survive in dry grasslands is

Being drought-resistant

What is Precipitation in deciduous forests is best described as

Rain, hail, snow etc

Why might a cold-blooded painted turtle often sit on a log and bask in the sun

Any cold-blooded reptile basks in the sun to get warm. Further, they pick a rock to sit on because the rock warms from the sun more than the ground.

A measured of how salty the ocean is

Its salinity.

A biome is best described as a major type of ecosystem with

distinctive rainfall temperature and organisms
