Transcript of Deciduous Forest Biome

The northeastern Asian deciduous forest biome is located on the continent of Asia at about 30 degrees to 45 degrees north latitude, and about 130 degree to 145 degrees east longitude. The biome covers parts of Korea, China, Russia, and Japan. The forest experiences all four seasons and has long cold winters, and warm, humid summers.

Animals

By: Alan Alvarado, Tina
Hoppler, Kaeley Eves, and
Autumn Parker.

The animals are separated into
main deciduous forest animals and the asian deciduous forest animals.
Main Deciduous Forest:
European Red Squirrel
Duckbill Platypus
Coyotes
American Black Bear
Bald Eagle
Asian Deciduous Forest:
Bengal Tiger
Sumatran Rhino
King Cobra
Wagler's Pit Viper
Japanese Macaque
American Black Bear
The American Black Bear, like most bears, lack the distinctive shoulder hump that the Grizzly Bear has. This bear can run up to 25 miles per hour, which is very quick for its 220-594 pound body. The length of this bear's body is usually 5-6 feet from nose to tail and 32-38 inches from paw to the top of its shoulder. They live in most of North America. The cubs are blind at birth and weigh 8_ ounces to 11_ ounces. The males do not help raise the cubs, but leave to mate again like most other bear species.
Bald Eagle
The Bald Eagle is a large fierce looking bird. It's name in Latin means "the sea eagle with a white head". The Bald Eagle reaches maturity between four and six years of age. It chooses one mate for its whole life. The climate it lives in affects its reproduction. The Bald Eagle tends to breed during the winter in the south, and during the spring in the north. It raises its family in large nests that are usually built near water.
Bengal Tiger
The Bengal Tiger is a beautiful animal. The base color is orange/brown, and white on the cheeks, mouth, eyebrows, and stomach. The tiger also has long black stripes on it. The weight of the tiger can be up to 575 pounds. The Bengal tiger is not the biggest tiger in the world, Its cousin the Siberian tiger is the largest tiger. The body of the Bengal tiger is broad with legs that are slender. The fur of the tiger is very fine in texture. The Bengal tiger is very sneaky and quiet. The cubs look the same. The Bengal tiger can get up to ten feet long and three feet tall.
King Cobra
The King Cobra's biome is the Southeast Asian rainforest. Its habitat are the clearings, bamboo stands, and edges of the forest and it is also commonly found near rivers and swampy areas. The climate that the King Cobra lives in is rainy and humid. The average temperature is usually 95°F. The King Cobra can grow up to 12-18 feet. Adults weigh 12-20 pounds.
Plants
Main Deciduous Forest:
American Beech Carpet Moss
Common Limes Lady Fern
Pecan Tree

Asian Deciduous Forest:
Pine tree
Spruce
Oak Tree
Manchurian Elm
Manchurian Walnut

American Beech
The American Beech tree grows in the southern and eastern parts of the U.S. It grows in deciduous forests all over Maine and northern Maschusetts. It grows best in deep rich, moist, and well-drained soils.
Carpet Moss
Mosses are simple, rootless evergreen plants. They can live in a wide variety of habitats, but are most often found covering the ground, growing on stream beds, and on the base of trees in deciduous woodlands. Carpet moss grows in eastern North America and Europe.
Pine Tree
Pine trees are the most common coniferous tree worldwide, numbering around 100 species. These trees form large forests characterized by wide open areas with sunlight spilling to the forest floor. Pines are sun loving trees that do not grow well under shady conditions. Most of these trees live in the equator. Pine trees live in the Northern Hemisphere, except for the Sumatran pine surviving south of the equator.
Oak tree
A tree that bears acorns as fruit, and typically has lobed deciduous leaves. Oaks are common in many north temperate forests and are an important source of hard and durable wood used chiefly in construction, furniture, and (formerly) shipbuilding.
The Deciduous Forest
The deciduous forest biome can be found in the eastern half of North America, and the middle of Europe. There are many deciduous forests in Asia. Some of the major areas that they are in are southwest Russia, Japan, and eastern china. South America has two big areas of deciduous forests.
The Asian Deciduous Forest
Human Impact on the deciduous forest
10,000 years ago, plants covered about 1/2 the earth's surface. Now they only cover about 1/3 of the earth's surface. Many forests that have disappeared have regrown, but some are now lost forever. People cut down forests for houses, ships, furniture, and paper. The land beneath healthy forests is often good for farming.
Conservation Groups
Conservation groups that help the deciduous forest biome is WWF (World Wildlife Fund) and ARKive.
