Limiting factors:
facts:
The Appalachian mountains are in the deciduous forest biome
the Appalachian mountains spans over 10 states, so the climate is greatly varied
The Appalachian mountain chain is the oldest
in North America
Mt. Mitchel (VA) is the tallest mountain in the Appalachian mountains (6684 ft)
on average, the Appalachian mountains in north Carolina reach temperatures ranging from 23 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit and 37 inches in precipitation.
The Blue ridge parkway is a major highway that cuts through the Appalachian Mountains from North Carolina to Virginia. Any animal that needs to cross it runs the risk of being hit by a vehicle. Due to the large amount of vehicles that use the parkway, air pollution could be higher on and near the Blue ridge parkway.
Acid rain
Every time a gas powered vehicle is started, it emits carbon dioxide and other chemicals that can lead to acid rain on the Appalachian mountains, which kills the organisms it encounters and erodes the mountains away.


Hunting
Hunting can reduce a population and
upset predator prey relationships,
which affects all organisms on a food
chain
overfishing
overfishing can upset marine food
chains and can lead to whole populations
dying.

Personal impact
I impact the Appalachian mountains when I camp,
fish, or hike, on trails like the Appalachian trail
which spans the length of the Appalachian mountains from Georgia to Maine.
