PART 1: Comparison of Biomes
High Biodiversity Biome: Savanna
In the winter, temperatures can range from 68°F to 78°F (20°C to 25°C) and in the summer temperatures range from 78°F to 86°F (25°C to 30°C). There is an annual precipitation of 10 to 30 inches of rain. Tropical grassland animals include giraffes, zebras, kangaroos, mice, moles, gophers, lions, leopards, elephants, etc.
Low Biodiversity Biome: Arctic Tundra
Annual rainfall in the arctic is usually about 6-10 inches and temperatures can range from -30°F to 60°F (-34°C to 16°C). Usually, tundra is covered by snow, but in the warm months, an estimated 250 species of moss, lichens, grasses, shrubs, herbs, and sedges resprout.
