Biome Project: Hogwarts/ Scottish Highlands
Transcript of Biome Project: Hogwarts/ Scottish Highlands
Hogwarts is located in the wizarding world. The Castle is surrounded by a great lake to the south, with a large forest, The Forbidden Forest, extending around the west of the castle.
The location of Hogwarts in the muggle world would be somewhere deep in the Scottish High lands, in the district of Lochaber.
The biome of the area is the Temperate Deciduous Forest
Average precipitation is around 1700mm annually.
The whole of Northern Scotland can get a range of precipitations from 700mm to 4000mm
This graph shows the average precipitation of Northern Scotland over a 90 year period
*Hogwarts' true location is unknown to muggles, so the graphs are of the area in the surrounding area of Hogwarts' true location.*
The climatograph of Fort William; Located in Locahber.

Average temperature is around 9°C
January and February are the coldest months, while July and August are the warmest.
Biotic Factors at Hogwarts
Kelpie - A shape shifting water demon; native to England and Ireland. The Kelpie has a behavioural adaptation of shape shifting, usually into a horse, to lure travelers, drag them underwater and eat them. The most famous Kelpie is the Loch Ness monster.
Centaur - A half human, half horse, the centaurs live in colonies set aside by the ministry, in herds of ten to fifty. Although possessing human intelligence they are classified as beasts, at their own request. The Centaur has learned many behavioural adaptations to protect itself, many are talented in hunting, magical healing, divination, and astronomy.
Whomping Willow - A very violent, and valuable magical plant. It is a deciduous plant that has a behavioural adaptation, that will attack anyone that comes in range with its branches. The Whomping Willow is native to Scotland and the Forest of Dean, but it is very rare.
Devil's Snare - Endemic to Scotland, the Devil's Snare is a plant with the magical ability to constrict and strangle anything that touches it. Struggling causes the plant to exert a greater force of constriction. This behavioural adaptation protects the snare, but because the Devil's snare resides in dark and damp places, any heat of light will make it's tentacles to recoil.
