Transcript of Deciduous forest

The deciduous forest food web Websites Cited Nc.wiseowl.org The animals and insects that live in the deciduous forest are the asian long horn beetle, monarch butterflies, ruby throated humming bird, downy wood pecker, ants, beetles, big brown bats, gall wasps, the eastern tiger swallow tail butterflies, and more. Plants Plants in the deciduous forest are, fruit trees, evergreen trees, fungi, berry bushes, fern flowers, purple violets, white trilliums, and pink lady slippers. Weather Animals and insects Landforms The landforms in the deciduous forest are hills, mountains, and rivers. These landforms are found in the temperate deciduous forest interesting facts *Weather events can have a dramatic,drastic effects on the deciduous forest The temperate region's weather can be a storm of contrast. Each month you can expect typical average temperatures and certain types of weather. In January: temperatures between 10 Fahrenheit (- 12 Celsius) and 30 Fahrenheit (-1.1 Celsius).In July temperatures average between 36 Fahrenheit (2.2 Celsius) and 81 degrees Fahrenheit (27 Celsius).But temperatures and humidity can change in a day,in an hour,even in a few minutes. * The humidity blanket from day to night, temperatures in the temperate deciduous forest do not drop as much as they do in the desert. That's because the forests 60 to 80 percent relative humidity helps to moderate temperature change. A moist blanket of air insulates insulation prevents the forest from warming up too quickly. In contrast, deserts --which have little humidity -- warm up quickly during the day and cool off very rapidly at night.

for home purpose and some
animals are becoming extinct
because of the loss of their habitat The map for the deciduous forest Where is the deciduous forest located? The deciduous forest can be found in Canada, Europe, Russia, China, Japan, and the United States. THE END! :) The weather in the deciduous forest is 60-80 percent humidity.There is no dry season.Precipitation falls through out the year. There are 30-80 inches of rain. Pictures of animals adaptations By: Kalayah and Alyssa Many well-known animals live in this kind of forest. Some examples are the eastern gray squirrel, bears, beavers, foxes, deer, rats, snakes, mice, wolves, racoons, and large birds of prey like red-tailed hawk. These animals have unique adaptations Suited for seasonal life. For example,some rodents stare up fat, then hibernate during cold winters, Birds include the bald eagle, nightingale,cardinals, hawks, and the snowy owl The plants are adapted to survive in these conditions. For example, trees like the palm, white spruce, and the elm have leaves that absorb water and sunlight. The soaring branches do more than just provide shade for other creatures of this biome; they also provide nutrients necessary for the tree to live. Another example of adaptation: these trees shed their leaves in the winter. By shedding their leaves, they cannot transpire. Consequently, they are able to retain water for the winter. Plants also soak up nutrients from the soil. These plants shed their leaves in fall. Organisms and their adaptations Humans have often colonized areas in the temperate deciduous forest. They have also harvested wood for timber. As a result, less than one quarter of original forests remain. Temperate forests have also been used for farming. www.edurite.com
