Each different biomeforest, grassland, desert, and tundrahas its own unique plant life, animal life, and climate. The experiments, activities, and facts in this book help explain how the different biomes work and show the importance biomes play in keeping life on Earth so fascinatingly diverse.
You'll learn how the tilt of Earth affects the weather in different parts of the world: how and why some animals migrate; why leaves change color; and how cacti survive so long without rainfall. From the South American rainforests to the African savanas to the Chinese Taakla Makan Desert, you'll find out how climate and geography determine the way plants and animals look and behave--with safe, inexpensive experiments for the home and classroom!
