African Biome Components
African Biome Components
: There is hardly any rain in the Sahara for all year, usually less than half an inch in some areas. Sand storms and dust devils are very common due to the sand dunes. The temperature is usually around 30 degrees Celsius, but sometimes springs up to 50 degrees Celsius, around 122 degrees Fahrenheit.
: The Sahara desert is the largest hot desert in the world, with over 3.6 million square miles of dunes. The Sahara is bordered by oceans: The Mediterranean Coast borders it on the North, the Red Sea to the East, and the Atlantic on the western edge.
: As humans find oil and natural gases very useful, the Sahara Desert may prove a
place for exploitation. Oil and natural gases lurk beneath the raging winds and sand dunes. The oils could be used for fuels.
: The animals are mostly small rodents, like rabbits and gerbils.There are also deer and sheep. There are also cat- and dog- like animals, such as the hyena and jackal. The Sahara also contains scorpions.
There are giraffes, elephants, gazelles, (The herbivores) and cheetahs or lions (The meat eaters).
the Sahel is a huge flat land. It is a form of streak across Africa that is half desert and half Savanna. It has trees and plants such as shrubs, Acacia trees, and wild grass.
The rain is scarce; the weather is typically hot, dry... arid. The climate of the Sahel is close to but less than that of
water (scarce) and soil. These are used in agriculture. There are also trees (wood), which can be used as building material or firewood.
: There are beaches all along the coast as well as the Atlas mountains. Green is a common sight, as well as- surprisingly- the Mediterranean.
:No rain in the summer, lots of rain in the winter; 40 degrees in the winter, ~80 degrees fahrenheit
There are some reptiles; there are salamanders and vipers. There are rabbits and eagles. There are also honey badgers and owls.
: There is water, dirt, and multiple different plants and trees. There are rice plantations. There is also plenty of sand, which could be used... for... large-scale terra-forming? The water's use is self explanatory. It can be used for drinking (filtered) and cleaning (also filtered). The dirt could be used for farming, and the trees/wood could be used for beautifying or building.
Frog, pygmy fox, gorilla, fish, chimpanzee, boa constrictor, elephant, skinks, poisonous dart frog, crickets, other insects.
Many trees and rivers; trees and plants included vines, water lilies, bushes, orchids, rubber trees, and the enormous trees themselves.
misty, rainy, humid, warm; the average.
water, soil, trees, and multiple fruits are found here. Soil could be used for farming, water could be used for cleaning and drinking, wood from trees could be used as firewood or building material. The fruits could be used as food.
Many trees, grasses, flat land, Rivers, and a generally flat land.
Lion, cheetah, leopard; herbivores: hippo, elephant
4 inches of rain falls on average annually. The temperature is relatively warm, and in the dry season (colder than wet season??) the temperature is still 70
for degrees) fahrenheit
oil could be used for refining into gas and fuels.Water can be used for cleansing and drinking, nutrient-rich soil is useful for farming, livestock that live here are useful as food sources, and wood could be used for building or for fires.
