Adam Davis ENV150 23 October 2016 Chapter 7 – Geography of Life 7.1 1. Many biomes extend to higher latitudes near coastal locations compared to locations in the interior of continents. Why is this the case? a. The coastal locations have climates that contain milder temperatures. They also exchange matter and energy with the actual ocean. 7.2 1. The diversity of tropical rain forest insect species is directly correlated with the diversity of trees and shrubs. Explain why. a. Tropical rain forests create a habitat that has a lot of rain each year. Because of this, animals and plants in the biome are able to survive and flourish in a warm, wet climate. With diverse plants comes a diverse population of insects. Also, high tree coverage makes for a darker forest floor, where the insects primarily live. 7.3 1. Explain why soil nutrients and insect diversity change considerably throughout the year in temperate deciduous forest.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
