2:Biome Description/Definition: Tundra has a biome where the temperatures are almost always really low. Due to low temperatures Growth of trees and plants have diminished, leaving low habitants of animals roaming the area. There are three different types of tundras: Arctic Tundra, Alpine Tundra, and Antarctic Tundra.
The Savanna is one of many biomes in the world. It is characterized by its warm climate, lack of rain, grasslands, and its scattering of small trees and bushes. Many people see the Savanna as a midway point of a tropical rainforest and a desert.
Chapter 7 focuses on climate as it relates to conflict. When we think of climate, we think of atmosphere, mood, or the overall feel of any given situation. The book describes climate as three different types of interdependence in a situation: promotive, competitive, and individualistic, all of which represent areas found in climate analyses. The climate or mood is what shapes conflict when we are interacting with others. It’s the main ingredient that causes people to act in the ways that are conducive to their environment. For example, have you ever woke-up and felt tired, depressed, energized or ecstatic about the day? Or even, paranoid, anxious or nervous? In the book, "Practical Mental Influence and Mental Fascination", the author William
First, Geography focuses on graphing physical features. Physical features help determine weather and climate. Physical Geography “tells you how to dress—for the climate, the company, or the culture” (Gersmehl). Geography determines things like culture and needs for certain groups of people. Geography is also the “study
In the book March by John Lewis, the reader is taken on a journey through Lewis’s childhood up until his engagements in the dawn of the Civil Rights Movement. Throughout the book Lewis recounts the oppressive realities of segregation along with his and others’ enlightened ideas towards abolishing the degrading treatments. Simultaneously, Lewis expresses the underlying theme of the connection between geography, community and politics in which he supports that they all perpetuate each other. The connection between these three are dependent upon one another given that geography lays the foundation for the physical aspects of a community and communital perceptions, which ultimately fuels the voice for politics.
An example of religious conflict and the spreading out of contagious diseases is the floods in Bangladesh have sent hundreds of thousands of refugees to India. In United State, hurricane Andrew in Florida (1992) destroyed the Home State Air Force Base and caused $26 billion damage cost. In 2006, another hurricane called Ivan ruined the Naval Air Station Pensacola.
Montreal, the home of hockey, is the best city to do for the 5 Themes of Geography. I mean it is Canada, who doesn’t like Canada. Like I mentioned before, the five themes go perfectly well with this city.
In ecological succession plant life starts and changes over time in a progressive way and is a process that can be observed along coastal regions all over the world. Primary succession often begins with small prokaryotes and protist that get washed up on shore. Lichens and
A biome is like a giant habitat. Wolves have many different types of biomes. They can live in anywhere from the mountains to the snow. The most common place they live are forests. That is what a wolves biomes
These relationships include competition (negative interactions that occurs among organisms whenever two or more organisms require the same limited resource), predation (biological interactions where a predator feeds on its prey), herbivory (when animals eat plants or plant-like organisms), symbiosis (when two or more species live in direct contact with one another), and facilitation (species interactions that benefit at least one of the participants and cause harm to neither). These interactions between and within populations also influence patterns of species distribution and abundance that are discussed in chapter 40. One factor that greatly contributes to the global distribution of organisms is dispersal, the movement of individuals away from their birthplace or center of high population density to their breeding site. There are three main patterns of dispersal: clumped, uniform, and random spacing. Dispersal is key in understanding geographic isolation in evolution as well as the broad patterns of species distribution that occur in the world
In my opinion, Learning Module 1 is the most meaningful and important of all learning modules reviewed in this class. The Learning Module 1 is about the basics of physical geography, which includes Chapter 1: Discovering the Earth’s dimensions, Chapter 2: The Earth’s global energy balance, and Chapter 3: Air temperature.
Invasive weeds and grasses could crowd out native plants and shrubs, accelerating erosion and leading to more frequent
The natural features of geography protected the Chinese and influenced the way they lived through rivers that provided rich soil for growing crops, mountainous regions providing protection/isolation and the growth of a new crop to China, deserts veering off invaders and a major ocean border. The first natural feature of geography that influenced the Chinese way of life is the Yellow River, or Huang He, a river that travelled across the agricultural land of China, collecting rich and fertile soil along the way. This soil, loess, would sink to the riverbed, creating a thick layer of silt that would allow Chinese people to grow staple foods and catch fish. In the North the staple was wheat and in the south, rice. An example of the Yellow River influencing the way the Chinese people lived is in the map in source 1, drawn by cartographer Cha Yun in 1861-1875, as it shows the river with roots coming out in all directions of the land, conveying how the river provided food and life to the Chinese people. The Tibetan plateau, a mountainous and
The term “community” is defined by our textbook as being, an assemblage of species interacting with one another within the same environment. A community can also be summarized by saying that the entire group species in a specific region or smaller area is considered a community, with this definition of community having respect to population diversity along with the location within the ecosystem. A community not limited to one species in particular, although it is limited to one specific area or location. When speaking of community one must know for sure exactly what given area of the ecosystem is being discussed.
Bojocco et al(2010) Reported that fire has a major role in the determination of diversity and vegetation dynamics. It has influence on landscape structural diversity (Weatherspoon and Skinner 1995). The frequent occurrence of forest fires has been one of the vital reasons for the exhaustion and extinction of most of the biodiversity. This results in partial or complete degradation of vegetation cover or fragmentation of the forest thus modifying the radiation balance by growing the surface albedo, water runoff and raising the soil erosion (Darmawan and Mulyanto, 2001). Historical study of forest fire is significant for ecological and forest management applications(Iniguez et al. 2008). In terrestrial ecosystems, Landuse change and fires are considered as the drivers of global change(Rudel et al. 2005;Fraterrigo et al.
