1-3B) and as it descends it compresses causing the formation of heat and dry, warm air. This air then absorbs moisture resulting in little precipitation and produces such areas as the Sahara and Australian deserts. 3. Temperate deserts are generally located in areas known as rainshadows. Rainshadows occur on the lee side of high coastal mountain ranges (Fig. 1-12). As moisture-laden air approaches the windward side of the mountains, the air rises, cools, and creates a low pressure condition causing precipitation.
The broadleaf trees lose their leaves (deciduous) during the winter to conserve moisture and resist the cold. As the cold fall weather settles in, the leaves begin the deciduous process (leaf-fall) and the leaves turn to brilliant reds, oranges, and yellows as chlorophyll formation is halted and the leaves finally die and fall to the ground forming a litter that decays further to a rich organic mat called humus. Mammals in this biome include acorn and nut feeders such as squirrels and chipmunks; omnivores such as raccoons, skunks, black bear, and opossum; and rare carnivores such as mountain lions, bobcats, and wolves.
Bright plumage to reflect sunlight. Reptiles have waterproof skin, produce uric acid instead of urine, and hard-shelled eggs. Table. 1-1 (continued). Major earth biomes. Tundra Fig. 1-6. Typical tundra biome and location(s). © 1999 by CRC Press LLC The soils are shallow and poor in fertility because of the limited growing season combined with the slow decomposition of organic matter in extreme cold temperatures. Consequently, the soils and the associated plant life tend to be very fragile, and damage done to the tundra is usually long-lasting.
