Transcript of Deciduous Forest
What countries and continents is your biome in? A biome is a large geographical area characterized by certain types of plants and animals. We are advertising the Deciduous Forest biome.
Deciduous forests are found all around the world. They are found primarily in the eastern half of the United States, Canada, Europe, Russia, China, and Japan. 2. What are the major cities within your biome and their populations? Continents: North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. Antarctica is the only the only continent that does not have deciduous forests. Major Cities with Deciduous Forests:
Chicago: 2,707,120 3. How did your biome form? It formed because it had more rain than a grassland, therefore trees can grow. 4. What causes your biome to exist? Rain, without rain trees couldn’t grow if trees can’t grow than it isn’t a forest. 5. Describe how your biome is changing. Because of the drought we are changing into a grassland. 6. Describe how your biome is being destroyed. Deforestation is destroying the deciduous forest. Humans are cutting down the trees to make room for more civilization and for lumber. Air pollutants from the oil we burn are killing the forest. Natural occurring forest fires can take out a big chunk of a forest in some area. 7. Describe four major terms about your biome 8. Describe the characteristics of your biome:
a) temperature tange b) rain/snow fall c) main plants. a) During the summer months the temperature will range from 75 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit. For those temperate deciduous forest biomes high up in the mountains, they will be at the cooler side of temperatures. The average temperature is about 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
b) In the winter months, the deciduous forest can get up to 14 inches of rain and in the summer months it can get up to 18 inches of rain. The average rainfall per year is 30 to 60 inches of rain. In most deciduous forest biomes, it does not snow because the temperature is too warm for it to snow. But it is possible for it to snow in the winter months for some deciduous forest biomes.
c) Trees of this biome include both broadleaf, deciduous trees, such as maple, oak, hickory, and beech, and evergreens, such as hemlock, spruce, and fir. A deciduous forest typically has three to four, and sometimes five, layers of plant growth. Two main flowers in the deciduous forest are the passion berry and the blue lily.
9. Explain how organisms have adapted to live within your biome. Animals must be able to cope with cold winters when food is in short supply. Migration and hibernation are two adaptations used by the animals in this biome. Some animals just stock pile their food in the ground or in hollowed out trees. 10. What is the apex predator of your biome? The apex predator of the deciduous forest is the cougar. 11. What is the main prey of your apex predator? Deer because a cougar eats the deer. 12. Show and explain a food web that would be present within your biome. cougar eats dear and dear eats grass
Fox eats mice and birds and mice and birds eat grass and seeds
13. What animals are endangered within your biome? American Bald Eagle, red wolf 14. China, Canada, Russia, Japan
A) English and Chinese and Russian
C) Jeans and a long sleeved or short sleeved shirt
D) cell phones and computers we are very high tech and well educated
E) U.S. dollars, yen bills and coins, the Canadian dollar
Deciduous trees are trees with leaves that will fall off in the winter. Coniferous trees are trees that don’t have leaves that fall off. Migration is when animals leave during the cold months to go to somewhere warmer. Hibernation is when animals eat up a lot of food and sleep all through the cold months.
