  • Coral Reefs: Topic Page
    CORAL REEFS ARE massive and complex structures made of limestone that is deposited by living sea organisms. The reefs are mainly composed of the skeletons of tiny, fragile animals called coral.
  • Desert: Topic Page
    Arid region, usually partly covered by sand, having scanty vegetation or sometimes almost none, and capable of supporting only a limited and specially adapted animal population.
  • Estuaries: Topic Page
    ESTUARIES ARE KNOWN by many different names: bays, coves, inlets, harbors, sounds, and lagoons. Simply put, they are places where rivers meet the sea.
  • Forest: Topic Page
    A dense growth of trees, together with other plants, covering a large area of land.
  • Mountain: Topic Page
    High land mass projecting conspicuously above its surroundings and usually of limited width at its summit.
  • Ocean: Topic Page
    Interconnected mass of saltwater covering 70.78% of the surface of the earth, often called the world ocean.
  • Rainforest: Topic Page
    Dense forest usually found on or near the Equator where the climate is hot and wet.
  • Swamp: Topic Page
    Swamp, shallow body of water in a low-lying, poorly drained depression, usually containing abundant plant growth dominated by trees, such as cypress, and high shrubs.
  • Swamp: Topic Page

  • Tundra: Topic Page
    Treeless plains of N North America and N Eurasia, lying principally along the Arctic Circle, on the coasts and islands of the Arctic Ocean, and to the north of the coniferous forest belt.
  • Wetlands: Topic Page
    Wetlands, low-lying ecosystem where the water table is always at or near the surface. It is divided into estuarine and freshwater systems, which may be further subdivided by soil type and plant life into bogs, swamps, and marshes.
