|Global Weather Patterns|
This tutorial introduces students to global weather patterns and how they affect the kinds of trees and plants that grow in different latitudes of the Earth. The discussion covers the tropics and the lush rainforests that live there, temperate forests in the mid-latitudes, and boreal forests in the far north. There is also a description of how treeless areas occur in various climate zones (desert, tundra, savannah), and how plants adapt to low-water conditions in the desert. A quiz and glossary are included.
