Summary Introduction

To match: The each term with their suitable description.

Explanation

Tundra: d. low-growing plants at high latitudes or elevations.

Tundra is a region in the north of the boreal forest, where temperatures remain cold enough for the growth of a tree. It is a high elevation biome that is dominated by low-growing plants.

Chaparral: e. dry shrubland.

The temperature of chaparral is very hot and dry in summer. These are found in the bordering regions of Australia, South Africa, and Mediterranean.

Desert: f. at latitudes 30° north and south.

Deserts have sandy that is fast-draining soil with little topsoil. These are formed around 30° north latitudes and south, where rain fall is rare and falls seasonally.

Savanna: c. African grassland with trees.

The temperature of savanna range from 20°C to 30°C and found in between the desert biome and tropical rainforest. Savannas of Africa include a wide disperse trees and grasslands that support herds of grazing animals.
