Title: Desert Biome


1
Desert Biome
  • By Gavin Livesey and Megan Zawisza

2
What is a Desert you say?
  • The desert is a wasteland that receives very
    little to no rainfall each year

3
PRODUCERS OF THE DESERT
  • The desert does not have a lot of plant life and
    the only kind of plant that is physically able to
    survive in the arid, dry climate of the desert
    would be the cactus, bushes, and shrubs.

4
THE DEVINE EATERS OF THE DESERT
  • Like the producers, desert consumers have to have
    adaptations that let them survive without water
    for long periods of time. A camels hump, that is
    filled with unused fat, is an example. There are
    also snakes, lizards, beetles, small rodents,
    birds, and bats that inhabit the desert region.

5
THE DESERT LOCATIONS
  • There are deserts in almost every continent in
    the world including, North America, South
    America, Africa, Europe, and Asia.

6
THE TYPES OF DESERT SOIL
  • Because of its extreme heat and little rainfall,
    the soil is dry and infertile.

7
Temperature Ranges
  • During the summer, it can get up to over a
    hundred degrees but at night it stays around
    forty-five.

8
Precipitation
  • Because of their locations, most deserts get an
    average of only ten inches of rain per year.

9
Deserts in Danger
  • Thanks to global warming, droughts are occurring
    more often, causing water holes to dry up.
  • The increase in temperature may also cause more
    wildfires, altering the landscape.
  • Pollution is another problem that will poison
    both the soil and the wildlife.

10
Helping the Biome
  • We can help to prevent this by finding safer
    means of dumping chemical waste and use
    environmental safe cars and other mechanics.
