Transcript of The Deciduous Forest

The Squose of the Deciduous
Forest By: Madeline Totten World Map Green = Deciduous Forest Climate The deciduous Forest has 4 seasons, mild summers with average temperatures of 70° F, fairly cool winters with temperatures averaging a little below freezing (32° F), almost 14 inches of rain in the winter, and more than 18 inches of rain in the summer.The latitude is 23° north and 38° south. monthly temp. rainfall amount Landscape The Deciduous Forest has a lot tall trees, vegetation, hills, and rich soil. Natural Resource and conservation A natural resource is something that is found in nature and is useful to humans. A valuable natural resource of the Deciduous Forest is trees. Trees are valuable because without them we could not survive since they produce oxygen. We can conserve them by recycling paper and other products made from trees so we don't need to cut as many of them down. Trees are biotic. Endangered Species One endangered species is the Caribou. The Caribou is endangered because of the loss of forests, snowmobiles, and hunting development.There are only about 40 Woodland Caribou left in the world. People are helping the endangered Caribou by filing a lawsuit to limit the snowmobile range. Representative Plants Two representative plants in the Deciduous Forest are... 1.) The American Beech Tree. A tall and wide tree that can grow up to 90- 100 feet tall and 50- 70 feet wide.Very smooth, pale gray bark. Leaves are bright green, about 3 inches in length, they start out wide then get smaller until they come to a point. 2.) Maple Tree. They vary in size some can grow 15- 20 feet while others can grow 70 feet or more. The seeds fall to the ground spinning like a helicopter. Have clusters of green flowers at the end of the young shoots which stand upright. Representative Animals Two representative animals in the Deciduous Forest are... 1.) The Bald Eagle. Generally lives 45 - 50 years in captivity and 25 years in the wild., is 30.4 - 36.4 inches tall. It has a 5 1/2 - 8 foot wing span. The females are normally larger then the males. 2.) The Wood Mouse. Sometimes known as the Long-tailed Field Mouse, mostly nocturnal, has a golden- brown color, large eyes and ears. 11 centimeters long with an additional 11 centimeters for the tail, lives an average of 1.5 years. Global Warming Effects The heating of the earth along with the temperature can cause certain animals unable to inhabit the deciduous forest. General Characteristics Mammals have fur or hair, produce live young instead of hatching them from eggs, give their young milk, warm blooded, and have three bones in there inner ears eating habits The Squose gathers nuts and berries along with other plants. The Squose is a herbivore. It eats in the mornings and at night, twice a day. Carrying Capacity Food Web Some limiting factors for the Squose are how much plant life there is, whether or not there's a drought and, how many predators there are. The carrying capacity for my animal is 1,000. Key Squose= predators= Maple Tree-

decomposer Habitat Habitat is the natural home or environment of an animal, plant, or other organism. The Squose lives in Maple Trees and in burrows under ground. Adaptation Adaptation is the action or process of adapting or being adapted. The Squose has fur for the winter and fall months and it sheds its fur in the summer months. Adaptations continued The Squose is a herbivore so it doesn't catch prey and it only eats plants. The Squose mates by the size of the it's nose, the smaller the nose is the easier it finds a mate. Mutualism Mutualism is a type symbiosis that is beneficial to both organisms involved. Commensalism Parasitism Conclusion Commensalism is an association between two organisms in which one benefits and the other is left alone with no harm or benefit. Parasitism is the relation between two different kinds of organisms in which one receives benefits from the other by causing damage to it. My animal and the flea because the flea benefits by having a place to live and food to eat while the Squose is harmed because the fleas make it itchy. The Squose and the Bur clover have a mutualistic relationship. The squose benefits by having food and the the Bur clover benefits by having its seeds spreed around because the burs get stuck in the Squose's fur and when they come lose they fall off to grow more plants. An example of a commensalistic relationship is the Squose and the Beech tree. The Squose gets a place to live while the Beech tree is unaffected. In conclusion the Deciduous Forests are everywhere with a lot of vegetation and animals. It also has endangered plants and animals just like every other biome. The lifespan of the Squose is about 25 years. The Squose has limited numbers and could become an endangered species very soon but the numbers continue to grow as more time passes.
