Unfortunately, ticks are not only a pest to moose, but can also be deadly. These organisms, cling on to moose, gain nutrients by sucking a moose 's blood, lay their eggs, which then blow up into sacks resembling balloons. The sacks make a moose 's skin extremely itchy (pg. 46). Ticks hurt moose in a couple large ways.
Greeting Fellow tourists My name is Moses Trotman and today i will be talking about the Canadian Shield .Did you know that the Canadian shield is a landform region that covers more than half of Canada ?, located in northeast Alberta, northern Saskatchewan, northern Manitoba, southern Northwest Territories, Ontario, Quebec, and Newfoundland. Weather and Climate The climate in the Canadian Shield region varies throughout the year. The Canadian Shield region gets 200-300 mm of rain in summer, and 1250-1500mm of snow in winter. The climate in this region can be described as having longer winters and shorter summers. Vegetation This region has lots of precipitation in Quebec and Labrador, which makes a good growing season.
Alpine tundra has a 180-day growing season, and it is usually below freezing at night. The soil here is well-drained, unlike in the arctic. The alpine and arctic tundras have the same plants, but the alpine tundra has tussock grasses, dwarf trees, small-leafed shrubs, and heaths. Animals such as mammals, birds, and insects are located in the alpine tundra and adapt to the altitude. Mammals that can be found in the area are pikas, marmots, mountain goats, sheep, and elk.
There is much more heat than could in Frisco. The rare ice storm does wreak havoc on roofs, though, during the winter. Even with all the heat and cold, the number one cause of a roof needing to be replaced is severe storms. Wind, hail, rain, hail, storms and of course hail. One of the things that makes hail so damaging to roofing in Frisco Texas is the size of the hail.
Geography has a lot to do with the shaping of Mendocino for a few different reasons. One reason is of the Pacific Ocean being so nearby. The Pacific Ocean causes the town to have snow either on extremely rare occasions or not at all. This also causes there to be fog constantly. Another reason is climate.
It is weather, animals behavior and life when hibernate. The first factor that causes a hibernating animal is weather. Most animals will live, adapting themselves with the weather and they tend to hibernate in winter such as birds turtles snakes or fish etc. Because the winter is very cold and may be have snow covered throughout the season. When the winter has started, a temperature is also greatly reduced.
Adaptions are characteristics that living things have in response to its enviornment changing. All plants and animals have their own unique characteristics to defend and protect themselves from their enviornment around them. Organisms need to use their characteristics to find a way to reproduce, have a need for energy, protect themselves from predation, and from their own enviornment. Gray wolves have many special adaptions that help them to protect and live in their own enviornment. Gray wolves have a thick fur coat to protect themselves from their cold enviornment in the snow and their log guard hairs to keep them out of moisture.
For years the Sioux, Chippewa, and Ojibwe Native Americans roamed the prairies of Minnesota, hunting the herds of buffalo. Minnesota had the geology to help support the buffalo, which in return supported the Native Americans. Located in Pipestone, MN is the Pipestone National Monument. This monument is the site where many Native Americans mined red pipestone which was made into pipes. This geological deposit was an important part of their heritage.
Introduction Snow blindness is a severe form of photokeratitis or radiation keratitis1, inflammation of the cornea due to exposure to ultraviolet radiation (UVR) reflected off of snow and ice, normally at high altitudes as the atmosphere is thinner. Extreme cold temperatures and a dry environment can also contribute to snow blindness, as snow blindness is sometimes also referred to as the freezing and drying of the corneal surface.2 Snow blindness is usually associated to skiing, mountain climbing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling;2 as snow can reflect up to 80% of UVR.3This condition results from eye exposure to UV light for long periods of time. Signs and Symptoms The longer the eyes are exposed to the UVB, the more severe the signs and symptoms. Snow blindness signs and symptoms occur
The Iroquois clothing is made of fur and hides and cornhusks, plant and tree fiber. They use these stuff because that is all the resources they can find. The Iroquois tools are stone axes, arrowheads, knives. They use those tools like stone axes to remove the fat from hides and arrowheads to hunt and spear animals and knives they use the same way as arrowheads. The Iroquois religions during the long winter night is that they huddle around log house fires and pass on stories of the past.
The arctic tundra biome is a biome located in the arctic circle, in such places as north Canada, Russia, Alaska, Iceland, Finland, and most of Greenland. Covering approximately 20% of the Earth 's land surface, the arctic tundra biome is the coldest biome on Earth, with winter temperatures averaging at -34°C (-30°F), and summer temperatures of around 3-12°C (37-54°F). The moderate summer temperature allows this icy biome to sustain life. Yearly precipitation is a low 15-25 centimetres (6-10 inches). The ground in a tundra biome has very low nutrients,which accounts for the low amount of plant life.
Toronto and Moscow have very different climates from each other. They have two distinctly differently geographical location; one being under the influence of Lakes and the other in a mountainous region with high elevation. Lastly, climate of both cities consist of cold winter and warm
The wolverine is an awesome animal that is extremely deadly. It is awesome because they are fluffy, cute, and deadly. The wolverines scientific name is Gulo Gulo. Gulo is Latin for "glutton. Wolverines live in the Taiga biome,which is the sometimes swampy coniferous forest of high northern latitudes, especially that between the tundra and steppes of Siberia and North America.
One should consider visiting the Siberian Tundra because of the rare animals that inhabit it and the vast number of activities that you can do when visiting. To start off, the Siberian Tundra is approximately 85,900 square miles and is located in the northeastern part of Russia between 60° to 80° North latitude, and 70° to 180° East longitude. Winters can be very cold with the temperature reaching -30° to -40° Fahrenheit. However the Summers are very cool with temperatures reaching around 50° Fahrenheit. The tundra is also an extremely windy area, with winds often blowing between 30 to 60 miles per hour.
Grizzly bears are also efficient in the ecosystem. Grizzlies are at the top of their food chain. Grizzlies like to eat fish, berries, insects, seeds, grass, elk, deer, fungi, and sometimes dead animals. Grizzlies are omnivores which means they eat both meat and plant. The grizzly helps in the nutrient cycle by keeping the ecosystem balanced.
