Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    A Biomes is a____________characterized by certain types of plants and animal communities. 

    • A.

      Taiga

    • B.

      Comiferous forest

    • C.

      Geographic area

    • D.

      Savannas

    Correct Answer
    C. Geographic area
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "geographic area" because a biome refers to a large geographical region that is characterized by distinct types of plants and animal communities. It encompasses various ecosystems within a specific area, such as forests, grasslands, deserts, or tundra, and is determined by factors like climate, soil, and topography.

    Tundra Biomes are located just beyond the_________or below________.

    Correct Answer
    coniferous forest polar regions or below snowcapped mountaintops savannas snowcapped mountaintops or below polar regions
    Explanation
    Tundra biomes are located just beyond the coniferous forest or below the polar regions. This means that tundra biomes can be found in areas where the coniferous forest ends and transitions into the tundra, as well as in areas below the polar regions where the tundra extends. This explanation clarifies the two possible locations for tundra biomes based on their proximity to the coniferous forest and the polar regions.

    Deserts are characterized by dry___________with little rainfall.

    • A.

      Land

    • B.

      Conditions

    • C.

      Grounds

    • D.

      Places

    Correct Answer
    B. Conditions
    Explanation
    Deserts are characterized by dry conditions with little rainfall. The word "conditions" in this context refers to the overall state or circumstances of the desert environment. This includes factors such as the lack of moisture, high temperatures, and sparse vegetation. The term "conditions" encompasses all these elements and accurately describes the unique and arid nature of deserts.

    Grasslands Bioms are found halfway between the____________ and the poles.

    • A.

      South pole

    • B.

      Nouth pole

    • C.

      Rivers

    • D.

      Equator

    Correct Answer
    D. Equator
    Explanation
    Grasslands biomes are found halfway between the equator and the poles. The equator is the imaginary line that divides the Earth into the Northern Hemisphere and the Southern Hemisphere. It is located at 0 degrees latitude. The poles, on the other hand, refer to the North Pole and the South Pole, which are the points on the Earth's surface that are farthest from the equator. Therefore, the correct answer is equator because grasslands biomes are typically located in regions with moderate temperatures and rainfall, which are characteristic of areas halfway between the equator and the poles.

    Savannas are tropical____________.

    • A.

      Grasslands

    • B.

      Tropical rain forests

    • C.

      Water

    • D.

      Deserts

    Correct Answer
    A. Grasslands
    Explanation
    Savannas are tropical grasslands. They are characterized by a mix of grasses and scattered trees, with a dry season and a wet season. The grasses in savannas are adapted to withstand drought and fire, and they provide food for grazing animals. The scattered trees in savannas provide shade and shelter for animals, but they do not form a dense forest like in tropical rainforests. Savannas are found in tropical regions around the world, such as in Africa, South America, and Australia.

    The northern most forest biome is known as the___________.

    • A.

      Tundra

    • B.

      Coniferous forest

    • C.

      Tropical rain forests

    • D.

      Taiga

    Correct Answer
    B. Coniferous forest
    Explanation
    The correct answer is taiga. The taiga, also known as the boreal forest, is the northernmost forest biome. It is characterized by coniferous trees such as spruce, fir, and pine, which are able to withstand the cold temperatures and short growing seasons of the region. The taiga is found in high-latitude regions of North America, Europe, and Asia. It has a harsh climate with long, cold winters and short, cool summers. The coniferous trees in the taiga are adapted to these conditions, with needle-like leaves that help them conserve water and withstand the cold.

      Ocean biome

    • D.

      Forest biome

    Correct Answer
    C. Ocean biome
    Explanation
    The marine biome refers to the aquatic ecosystem found in oceans. It encompasses a wide range of habitats, including coral reefs, open ocean, and deep sea. The term "ocean biome" accurately describes this vast and diverse ecosystem, making it the correct answer.

    • D.

      Vegetation

    Correct Answer
    D. Vegetation
    Explanation
    Tropical rainforests are known for their dense and diverse vegetation, which is supported by the high amounts of rainfall and humidity in these regions. The word "lush" further emphasizes the abundance and vibrancy of the vegetation found in tropical rainforests. Therefore, the correct answer is "vegetation".

      Coldwater

    • B.

      Fershwater

    • C.

      Hotwater

    • D.

      Water

    Correct Answer
    B. Fershwater
    Explanation
    Freshwater biomes include both moving and still water. These biomes consist of various bodies of freshwater such as lakes, rivers, streams, and ponds. These bodies of water can be either flowing or stagnant, providing habitats for a wide range of plants and animals adapted to freshwater environments. The correct answer, "fershwater," is a misspelling of "freshwater," but it still accurately represents the type of water found in freshwater biomes.

This term is used to describe the vast coniferous forests that are found in the northern parts of Russia and Canada. These forests are characterized by their cold climate, dense tree cover, and wetland areas. The term "swamp forest" refers to the presence of wetlands within the taiga, while "land of little sticks" describes the abundance of small, thin trees in the forest.
