Species And Biomes Project


If, after that time, you have not bought a licence then the program will switch to run as Map Maker Gratis. After you have installed the program it will function for 30 days as the full Map Maker Pro. Map creator software downloads.

The Project Students will research an animal that is listed on the Endangered Species List. They will learn about the animal including its adaptations, habitat, reasons for endangerment, and efforts taken to save the species.

Temperate Rainforest The Temperate Rainforest Climate: The obvious element of climate in the temperate rain forest is precipitation. At least 200 cm of it, perhaps up to 350 centimeters in warmer areas. The precipitation can fall in the form of rain or snow, with snow becoming more likely at higher elevations. The average annual temperature is above 0° C, largely influenced by the nearby ocean. The warmest of the temperate rainforests may have average annual temperatures around 20° C. World Distribution: This is a small biome in terms of area covered.

The main stretch of this habitat is along the northwestern coast of North America from northern California though southern Alaska. There are also small areas in southern Chile, New Zealand, Australia and a few other places around the world, most of which don't show up on the scale of the map to the right. In general, such forests form were relatively warm offshore waters affect inland climates. Temperate Rainforest Distribution Indicator Plant Species: Chilliwack River Provincial Park, BC Chilliwack River Provincial Park, BC Big coniferous trees dominate this habitat, including Douglas fir and Western red cedar, Mountain hemlock, Western hemlock, Sitka spruce and Lodgepole pine.

In addition, a number of deciduous trees are found here, particularly in warmer spots. One of these is Big-Leaf Maple. In addition to the trees, mosses and lichens are very common, often growing as epiphytes.

Epiphytes are also common in tropical rain forests; the common denominator is the moist environment that puts minimal water stress on plants without roots. In the pictures here you can see Douglas Firs in the photo above. The photo above right shows a ground-level view of the mossy forest floor, while the two lower photos to the right illustrate the epiphytes - mosses and lichens - that make a southern temperate rainforest home (note the deciduous trees). Below is a species of Indian Paintbrush growing in a temperate rainforest in British Columbia. Hoh River Rain Forest Indian Paintbrush - Castilleja sp. - Chilliwack River Provincial Park, BC Hoh River Rain Forest Bigleaf Maple - Acer macrophyllum Indicator Animal Species: Slug, Vancouver BC Slug, Chilliwack River Provincial Park, BC While mammals are certainly found in this biome, we have seen many of them (deer, bears, coyotes, etc.) in other biomes.

I thought I'd focus on a few other species here. You can't go to the Pacific Northwest without encountering a diversity of slugs. These shell less gastropods are very much at home here; the humid air prevents desiccation (although I well remember encountering banana slugs on early morning jogs in Los Angeles; they are able to live in that desert city thanks to well-watered lawns). The longer of the antennae have eyes at the ends of the stalks and the slug itself secretes a trail of slime (not unlike some po - wait, I'm not going to stoop to that joke here, it's too easy). The slime helps it crawl and protects the soft underside from sharp objects. Below are two birds from the temperate rainforest. Clark's Nutcracker is at home high in the mountains of the west (not just in the temperate rainforests), but it will be found at high elevations.

The Blue Grouse is a northwest endemic. When I wanted to confirm the ID on this photo I emailed, a noted wildlife illustrator and writer, and she confirmed the ID stating that it would be a life bird for her (that is, if she had seen it, it would have been the first time, or in other words, she has not seen one personally in her life. For me, getting a life bird on Julie is like, well me getting a dunk on LeBron James (who went to the same as my dad, BTW). Look below for more on this bird. (Now Julie will be really jealous as I didn't share the rest of this story with her.) Banana Slug, Ariolimax columbianus, Hoh River Rain Forest Blue grouse - Dendragapus obscurus - Chilliwack River Provincial Park, BC Clark's nutcracker Nucifraga columbiana - Mt. Rainier, Washington Ecological Notes: As with the tropical rain forest, water is the main story here. As we have seen, the high humidity means that epiphytes are much more common here than they are in the drier temperate deciduous forest.

Also, plants like mosses and ferns, which rely on water for reproduction, are also common here. Because the climate is colder than a tropical rainforest, however, there is a major change in the makeup of the species. Panasonic g7 video editor for mac.
