Temperate Biomes

Climates represented in this pyramid include:

  • Tundra
  • Boreal and deciduous forest
  • Grasslands and Mediterranean scrub

In the Pyramid

The Temperate Pyramid is 7100 square feet in size, standing 79 feet high which is tall enough for some trees to reach maturity. Seasonal climate temperatures are carefully controlled to simulate the seasons.

Plants growing in this pyramid are closest to those native to our climate here in Edmonton. Plants are adapted to seasonal growth patterns, with summer and winter seasons.

Changing with the seasons, colourful floral displays enhance the rich foliage. Plants go dormant in winter and burst into spring growth of green leaves and blooms. A variety of plants including many herbs, grasses and shrubs accompany larger trees.
