  • Wildlife and Ecology Conservation.
    • Global Biomes
      • Temperate grassland
        • Found in every continent but Antartica
        • Usually found in Africa, South America, North America, Hungary and  Russia
      • Temperate Forest
        • Leaf shedding trees
        • Seasons
          • Spring
          • Summer
          • Autumn
          • Winter
        • United States, Canada, Europe, China, Japan.
      • Ice
        • The polar ice biome consists of two biomes.
          • North Pole
            • Water freezing creates Pack ice.
          • South Pole
            • Water freezing creates Ice sheets.
        • High altitude and low altitude where the energy from the sun is weak enough for the water to freeze.
      • Mountains
        • Andes, Alps and Rocky Mountains
        • lies between an altitude of about 3,000 meters, and the place where the snow line of a mountain begins.
      • Tropical Rainforest
        • Hot, moist biome found near Earth's equator.
        • The largest tropical rainforests are in South America, Africa and South east Asia.
      • Tropical seasonal forest
        • also known as moist deciduous, semi-evergreen seasonal, tropical mixed or monsoon forests
        • contain a range of tree species: only some of which drop some or all of their leaves during the dry season.
        • Hot and wet in the summer
        • Cooler and dry in the winter.
      • Savanna
        • Mixed woodland and grassland ecosystem.
        • Widely spaced trees.
        • Open canopy.
          • Allows light to reach the ground to support the herbaceous layer that consists mostly of grass.
      • Desert
        • ecosystem that forms due to the low level of rainfall it receives each year.
        • Covers about 20% of the Earth.
        • There are four types of desert:hot and dry, semiarid, coastal, and cold.
    • Levels of Organisation
      • Individual (1)
      • Population (2)
      • Community (3)
      • Ecosystem (4)
      • Biome (5)
      • Biosphere (6)
    • Shifting Populations
    • Immigration
    • Emigration
