  2. coniferous forests
  3. permafrost
  4. temperate zones
  5. aphotic zone
  1. a The latitudes and the tropics and the Arctic Circle in the north and the Antarctic Circle in the south. They have seasonal variations in climate and more moderate temperatures than the tropics or polar zones.
  2. b Continuously frozen subsoil.
  3. c (Aka taiga) A biome found south of the Arctic Circle dominated by cone-bearing evergreen trees such as spruce, pine, fir, and hemlock. They have long, cold winters and short, wet summers, with considerable precipitation.
  4. d The zone below the photic zone in the ocean, comprising of the twilight zone (200 to 1,000 m) and the lightless zone that is below 1,000 meters.
  5. e The driest of all terrestrial biomes, characterized by low and unpredictable rainfall (less than 30 cm per year).

5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. Small, drifting animals located in the pelagic photic zone.
  2. A biome that is transitional between an aquatic ecosystem and a terrestrial one.
  3. Treeless grasslands found in regions with relatively cold winters and average between 25 and 75 cm of rainfall a year.
  4. An area of calm or very light winds caused by moist air at the equator rising due to being heated by the direct rays of the sun.
  5. Dry air that descends and spreads back toward the equator; these cooling winds dominate the equator.

5 True/False Questions

  1. intertidal zoneThe zone below the photic zone in the ocean, comprising of the twilight zone (200 to 1,000 m) and the lightless zone that is below 1,000 meters.

          

  2. desertificationThe significant environmental problem by which semiarid regions are converted to desert.

          

  3. temperate forests(Aka deciduous forests/broadleaf forests) Biomes in midlatitude regions where the moisture is sufficient enough to support the growth of large trees. Temperatures range from very cold in the winter to hot in the summer, with average rainfall around 75 to 150 cm.

          

  4. photic zoneThe zone below the photic zone in the ocean, comprising of the twilight zone (200 to 1,000 m) and the lightless zone that is below 1,000 meters.

          

  5. ocean currentsAll open water in the ocean.
