Lyrical Life Science Volume 2: Mammals, Ecology, and Biomes
Scientists have long observed that even on different continents, particular plants and animals live in specific regions or areas. They have developed different ways of classifying these regions based on similarities in location, climate, plants, and animals. These regions are called biomes.
Deserts are dry but the temperature varies
Tundras are dry, but all year it may freeze
Grasslands get more rain and may be called prairies
Savannas are grasslands that also have trees.
Oh the biomes are regions with similar climate
(precipitation and temperatures)
The climate determines soil and vegetation
Which then determines the kinds of creatures
In coniferous forests there are conifer trees
Needleleaf evergreens like pine and fir
Deciduous forests have trees that drop broad leaves
Rainforests are wet and warm most of the year
The freshwater biome includes streams and rivers
Lakes, ponds, swamps, marshes, and lands that are wet
The saltwater biome, the seas and the oceans
Called the marine it's too large to forget
See more of our Biology Songs.
