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.

Is hemlock a conifer

Yes, in the spruce and fir group.

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 is a natural wetland

A natural wetland is a wetland, not made by man, but formed by nature.

What are buttress roots and how are they helpful

Because the rain forest soil is very shallow, many trees have developed buttress roots to support themselves.

What ecosystem has the most rain

rainforest

About what percentage of sunlight pierces the rainforest canopy

1% - gradpoint

What soil is found in a temperate deciduous forest

rich, thick soil humus

What migratory routes do all migratory animals follow while migrating

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

Which term describes organisms that live on the bottom of aquatic habitats

Bottom Feeders. The term can be used to describe any organism which primarily dwells and feeds at the bottom on any aquatic habitat. However, it's most often used to describe organisms added to their tanks by aquarium enthusiasts in order to keep their tanks clean. In this case, bottom feeders will either consume the food left uneaten by the tank's main residents or the algae which grows within the tank itself. Examples of bottom feeders available commerically for home fish tanks are Caridina Multidentata, a type of algae eating shrimp, and Ampullariidae or Apple Snails, which consume excess food, rotting vegtation, etc.

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.

What kind of birds are in the conifer forest

72

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

cool and dry

What will the deforestation of rain forests most likely lead to

Deforestation of rainforests will likely lead to extensive extinction of species.

What are desserts and rain forests called

Habitats

Why do large herbivores migrate

to find food and water - novanet cowboy

Where is seventy five percent of the earths biomass contained

Forests

An adaptation that helps trees survive in dry grasslands is

Being drought-resistant

The climate in the tropical zone is characterized by

The climate in the tropical zone is characterized by hot and humid weather.

What is Precipitation in deciduous forests is best described as

Rain, hail, snow etc
