Question 10

Q10) Name any three types of terrestrial habitats.

Solution:

The animals and plants that live on land are called terrestrial animals.

Desert habitat: Plants, animals and other organisms that live in deserts have evolved to survive harsh conditions, scarce water and barren landscapes. Some desert habitats are short-lived—springing up to brighten the landscape only when the rains come.

Mountain habitat: On a mountain, the temperature changes rapidly and increases as elevation increases. As temperatures get colder, tree species change, and then become scarcer before disappearing entirely. At the top there may be nothing but snow and ice. But even these landscapes are home to a diverse array of plants and animals adapted for that environment.

Polar habitat: Polar habitats are located at the two poles of the Earth. They are cold, windy and have a lot of snow and ice. It's even too cold for trees to grow. Tundra takes up a lot of the area of polar habitats.
