Transcript of Canadian Biomes: The Deciduous Forest

The biotic things in a deciduous forest biotic means living
ex of living things in The Deciduous Forest LOCATION South of boreal forest
Eastern part of Canada
Northern hemisphere Introduction Description annuals and perennials are both located in the deciduous forest

terrestrial ecosystem

Usually contains lakes,ponds, rivers and freshwater streams

Most deciduous forests have flowers that bloom in the spring and some trees also
have flowers

deciduous forests are usually near an ocean resulting in rich soil Climate all 4 seasons
average summer temperatures are around 20 degrees Celsius
winter the temperature doesn't go much above freezing -20 degrees celcius
spring and fall are also pretty mild
precipitation is plentiful anywhere from 80 to I50 cm the precipitation is spread evenly through out the year
usually contain lakes ponds and freshwater streams background information Abiotic Elements floors of forest contain some of the best soil on earth because leaves fall annually so nutrients in leaves go into soil trees are growing resulting in fertile soil
sunlight often has difficult time getting through bunched up twigs and leaves
the air is very fresh there are many trees to produce CO2
because the precipitation levels are high there are many ponds and freshwater streams located in this biome The word "deciduous" is Latin for "to fall" deciduous trees shed their leaves each fall so they can live through the cold winter.In winter trees can't get the water they need to grow (the water is frozen in the soil) dropping their leaves allows them to become dormant no growth takes place in this period of time. carbondioxxxide biotic elements terrestrial ecosystem some animals include squirrels deers,rabbits foxes bears and wolves
many kinds of birds such as owls pigeons and migrating songbirds
most birds use trees for homes or as shelter from the suns heat in summer.
some animals like butterflies like the sunny clearing in the forest where lots of wildflowers grow .They drink nectar from flowers such as wood lilies and violets .
some trees include hickories, beeches, maples, elm, walnut, sweet gum, linden, maple, chestnut, .
animals that live in the forest are adapted to living in the forest different animals are adapted in different ways. 5+7= (cc) image by anemoneprojectors on Flickr day time night time hibernation butterfly's,chipmunks & most birds active during day
daylight easier to find food
but make easier for predators because easier to find & eat owls bobcats special structure in eye so can see better
raccoons, foxes good sense of smell so find food in dark
rabbits big ears hear predators that might want to eat them large amounts of food ready for winter because less food in winter
it will use stored body fat as food
groundhog example fun facts a large maple tree can drop at least half a million leaves each fall that's enough to make a pile one-half meters high -that's taller than you are!
it takes about 160 liters of sap to make 4 liters of maple syrup
when the seedpods of wild geranium get ripe and pop open they can shoot seeds more than 9 meters into the air
only bear cubs are light enough to climb trees The End thanks for watching By: Faiza Haidry TP7 biography. (2012). In Compton's by Britannica. Retrieved from http://school.eb.com/comptons/article-197491
