Transcript of Temperate Rainforests
Temperate rainforests are the world's smallest biomes. WHERE IS IT??? Climate and Environment Climate:
It has lots of rain, averaging more than 200 cm annually
It’s very humid, yet it’s colder, above 0˚ C but less than 30 ˚ C
The average annual temperature is above freezing.
There can be snow in some of the higher places.
The warmest places have annual averages of 68˚ F.
Large, old trees everywhere with Epiphytes, or plants growing on other plants. The dominant species are Sitka spruce, Sequoia, Dogwood, Hemlock and Redwoods.
Many trees are 100 to 1000 year old and 250 feet in height, 30 to 60 feet in circumference. Life in a Temperate Rainforest Temperate rainforests are found along
The Pacific coast of the USA and Canada
East Asia The layers of a Temperate Rainforest Animals - Black Bear, Raccoon, Puma, Cougar and Elk Vegetation - Vines, Palm trees, Orchids, Lichens and Ferns Did you know. . . Rainforests are found on every continent across the Earth, except Antarctica. By
Rishi P & Denver S A biome is a large area with distinct plants and animals who have adapted to differences in climate & environment. Today we look at the region in North America on the west coast of the United States and Canada however, it is one of the most interesting! Temperate rainforests cover only 6 %of the Earth's surface but yet they contain more than 1/2 of the world's plant and animal species! The trees of a temperate rainforest are so densely packed that rain falling on the canopy can take as long as 10 minutes to reach the ground. A typical four square mile patch of rainforest contains as many as 1,500 flowering plants, 750 species of trees, 400 species of birds and 150 species of butterflies... An area of a rainforest the size of a football field is being destroyed each second. Sources http://www.marietta.edu/~biol/biomes/temprain.htm
