Biomes in Japan
Transcript of Biomes in Japan
Temperature Deciduous Forest Biome
The average temperature in a deciduous forest is 50° F. The average rainfall is 30 to 60 inches a year. (75 - 150 cm)
Latitude & Elevation
30° to 45° North latitude, and about 130° to 145° East longitude. The biome covers parts of Korea, China, Russia, and Japan
Elevtion - mountains tend to have a wetter climate than flat or low lands. On mountainsides, forests vary, mostly becoming smaller in overall size, and in individual tree size. The moist conditions appeal to lichens, mosses, and ferns, and these plants tend to thrive.
Pine trees, spruce, oak, and ash trees grow in this biome
The Japanese macaque lives throughout Japan. It is a deciduous forest biome animal.
Reptiles that live in deciduous forests include many species of snakes, lizards, and turtles. The body temperature of a reptile changes with the temperature of the surrounding environment.
Frogs, toads, and salamanders live in significant numbers in temperate and moist tropical deciduous forests. Frogs and toads can also be found in dry tropical forests if there is a dependable source of water.
Broad-winged hawks, cardinals, snowy owls, and pileated woodpeckers
Biomes in Japan
The growing season of the temperate deciduous forest lasts about six month.
The temperate deciduous forest biome is characterized by its leaf-shedding trees and its seasons.
The temperate deciduous forest gets its name because the temperatures are temperate meaning they are not extreme.
Many of the trees in the temperate deciduous forest contain sap which they use to keep their roots from freezing during the winter.
Since it is the largest biome in the world, the climate varies from -40 degrees fahreheit to over 100 degrees. The average temperature is 39 degrees fahrenheit. (The pelagic zone)
Scad, mackerel, yellowtail, and the common Japanese squid.
Dominant Plant Life
The average yearly precipitation can add up to over 100 inches. (254 cm)
Marine (average salinity 3%)
