3. Is an estuary* a marine or freshwater biome? Explain your answer.

(*Estuary:  A semi-enclosed bay or body of water with access to the ocean that has freshwater streams or rivers running into it. Estuaries are usually less salty than the open ocean, so they often have unique ecological characteristics.)

(Plain: A large, flat area of land, usually with low elevation.)


5. Which continent is not part of the ecumene*?

(*Ecumene: The area of the Earth where people live.)


6. What biome would you most likely find on a mountain peak*?

(*Mountain peak: The summit, or highest point, of a mountain.)


-Note that there is more than one possible correct answer for question six.  If you like, you could just discuss the kind of biome you would find on a mountain peak in your area.









For each of the six biomes listed below, give the following information:

  • name one flora and one fauna species that lives there,
  • describe the climate,
  • list the continents where this biome is found,
  • explain how humans have adapted to live within this biome.
