1.Climate of the biome

It’s alway below freezing points in rock and ice biome’s.

2.Similar biomes and how they differ

The Alpine biome differs in altitude and snowfall.

3. Where is the biome in the world?

The Rock And Ice Biome is located in Greenland, Spitsbergen and antarctica.

4. What flora and fauna is typical to that biome?

The typical flora in the rock and ice biome is algae it may grow in the snow and give it a pinkish color. Few animals live in the rock and ice biome either.  There are some birds and polar bears, but that's pretty much it.  Even the polar bears spend a lot of time out on the floating ice or in the water.  Seals, whales and other marine mammals are there (the bears eat the seals), and of course there are a lot of fish. In Antarctica, penguins are common.

5. How does the flora and fauna differ from similar biomes?

Most of the fauna and flora have adapted to living in harsh conditions. some of the flora are animals such as penguins, orcas (killer whale), polar bears, harbour seals and beluga whale.

6.Explain why the flora and fauna of this biome lives within this biome

Because they have adapted to this environment  and want to live there.

7. How do humans use this biome?

Humans use this biome to watch the way the animals have adapted to the cold biomes.

8. Is our (humans) impact negative or positive in terms of the biomes growth and development?

The humans have caused a negative impact to the ice and rock by polluting the biome from the airborne pollution
