Climatogram for Monitor Display

Biomes

  1. A biome is a group of ecosystems identified and named for a characteristic vegetation type.
  2. The predominant vegetation is strongly influenced by climatic conditions such as temperature and precipitation.
  3. A diagram of mean annual temperature versus mean annual precipitation can show how biomes and climates differ.
  4. There are not sharp boundaries between biomes - one biome gradually changes into another.

Directions

Use the climatogram and the mean annual temperature and precipitation listed below to name the biome.

  1. 2° temp. and 60 cm precipitation = coniferous forest
  2. 25° temp. and 300 cm precipitation =
  3. 15° temp. and 200 cm precipitation =
  4. 20° temp. and 80 cm precipitation =
  5. 20° temp. and 25 cm precipitation =
  6. -10° temp. and 25 cm precipitation =
  7. 15° temp. and 25 cm precipitation =
  8. 15° temp. and 75 cm precipitation =
  9. 15° temp. and 200 cm precipitation =
