  5. benthic realm
  1. a The depth of light penetration, a maximum of 200 meters, in the ocean.
  2. b A biome dominated by grasses and scattered trees with a year-round warm temperature. The soil is poor and there is a lack of moisture. Rainfall is is around 30-50 cm per year.
  3. c The seafloor.
  4. d All open water in the ocean.
  5. e Winds that blow from east to west in temperate zones.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. The biome located in the Arctic surrounding the North Pole and Alpine meadows, characterized by very long, cold, harsh winters and minuscule summers. Ground is covered in permafrost most of the year.
  2. The region surrounding the equator between latitudes 23.5 degrees north (the Tropic of Cancer) and 23.5 degrees south (the Tropic of Capricorn), which experiences the greatest annual input and the least seasonal variation in solar radiation.
  3. (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. (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.
  5. Dry air that descends and spreads back toward the equator; these cooling winds dominate the equator.

5 True/False questions

  1. desertificationThe driest of all terrestrial biomes, characterized by low and unpredictable rainfall (less than 30 cm per year).

          

  2. phytoplanktonSmall, drifting animals located in the pelagic photic zone.

          

  3. tropical forest(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. ocean currentsRiver-like flow patterns in the oceans caused by the prevailing winds, the planet's rotation, unequal heating of surface waters, and the locations and shapes of the continents.

          

  5. wetlandsA biome dominated by grasses and scattered trees with a year-round warm temperature. The soil is poor and there is a lack of moisture. Rainfall is is around 30-50 cm per year.
