Hi,

Last year, I got the AP Environmental Science textbook for Green Generation. But, the terrestrial sections weren't as detailed as they should have been. Does anyone know of any online textbooks/handouts that contain specific material on terrestrial ecosystems? Thanks!

I used this website http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/glossary/gloss5/biome/ to study terrestrial biomes. Also, the Ecology/Green Generation CDs contain a terrestrial biomes packet that reviews the biomes.

Hey guys,
I'm a bit confused over the land percentage the tundra and taiga take up. Some sites say that the tundra takes up 20% of the Earth's surface (which seems sketchy), but most sites say the taiga is the biggest land biome and takes up 17% of the Earth's land. What's going on? Is it about the surface part (which includes water maybe)?

Oh hey! Another Washingtonian! Awesome! I hope you and your team do well this year, moumantai!

P.S. Inglemoor is looking really strong this year. I know some of the new sophomores up there. ;) Best of luck to you both!

Has anyone found noteworthy resources for this event? My partner and I have been consistently getting 6th at each invitational, and we're not too sure where to go from here.

Does 'deciduous forest' refer to only temperate deciduous forests?

Oh,yes I've been also been having trouble with the deciduous forest. I went on the ecology part of the official science Olympiad website and I searched through the power point and resources but I didn't find a lot of information.

Yes. "Deciduous" as in drops its leaves every fall.

There are a few websites I use along with the event CD.

http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/glossary/gloss5/biome/ for biomes.

https://www.epa.gov/learn-issues for environmental problems.

https://www.nwf.org/Wildlife.aspx for fauna information and problems facing organisms.

And of course,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page , for everything in between.

Peterson Field Guides Ecology of Eastern Forests is phenomenal

Hello! Can someone please share a 2017 ecology test with me? I have looked through the wiki tests and am looking for other tests. Thanks!
