Hello, my name is Tim O'Brien. I'm an astronomer working at The University of Manchester's Jodrell Bank Observatory. As an astronomer my job is to try and understand how the universe works and my main interest is why some stars explode - more about this later! I also get to visit lots of schools and share amazing facts with children and teachers about the Sun, Earth and Moon, the stars and planets, and the Universe as we know it! Now, in the Children’s University, I can share the excitement with you. I hope you enjoy the journey!

The geography of Canada plays a big part in our lives, wherever we live in it!

Biome/Habitat Animal Printouts -

Habitat Animal Printouts. The Earth has many different environments, varying in temperature, moisture, light, and many other factors. Each of these habitats has distinct life forms living in it, forming complex communities of interdependent organisms. A complex community of plants and animals in a region and a climate is called a biome.

Ecosystems of Our World

Learn about the different ecosystems and biomes on our planet. Also, find out about the water, carbon, and nitrogen cycles, as well as the food chain. Find out how we are disrupting these important processes.

Earth Floor: Biomes

There are many different
kinds of plants and animals on the Earth, but only certain kinds
are naturally found at any particular place. (We are not counting
zoos here!) For example, cacti are found in the desert, polar bears
are found in the Arctic, and elephants are found in central Africa
and India. So, why don't people living in south Texas have to be
on the lookout for snow leopards, or why don't kids in Minnesota
have to worry about finding giant boa constrictors in their back
yards? It is because these animals are not adapted to live in the
average weather conditions found in Texas or Minnesota.

The World's Biomes

Welcome to the World's Biomes Page! Biomes are defined as "the world's major communities,
classified according to the predominant vegetation and characterized by
adaptations of organisms to that particular environment" (Campbell).
