Climate - Freshwater Biomes
The freshwater biome covers only 0.8% of the total water on this Earth, yet the water which makes up this biome are distributed unevenly throughout the globe (W2). As a result the climate of these Biomes is greatly diverse depending on the region (W2). Figure #1: The Okanagan Lake, located in British Columbia, is one of the longest lakes in Canada.(Image source: On average temperatures range from 65 °F to 75 °F in the summer and 35 °F to 45 °F in the winter (W2). Precipitation and temperatures are also dependent on the region the biome is located in.
