Seasons
There are 4 distinct seasons in a deciduous forest:
Spring
Summer
Autumn
Winter
Soil
The soil is rich with nutrients
Organisms
Animals
Black bear
Chipmunk
Crow
Threats
logging
agriculture
air pollution
climate change
Plants
Maple tree
Oak tree
Aspen tree
Maple tree
Has broad leaves that allow is to capture maximum sunlight for photosynthesis
Oak tree
As temperatures drop, trees cut off water supply to leaves to ave water for the tree.
Aspen tree
As the temperature begins to increase in the spring, the tree is signaled to start growing leaves again.
Adaptations
Bear
Hibernates during the winter
Chipmunk
stores food for winter months
Crow
migrates when the weather gets cold.
Adaptations
Global Importance
Hidden within these biomes are potential medicines and many thousands of unseen and undiscovered species. Also, forests have a global climate-buffering capacity, so their destruction may cause large-scale changes in global climate.
Endangered Animals
Grey Wolf
Red-cockaded Woodpecker
Pine Marten
Interesting Facts
The temperate deciduous forest biome is subdivided onto five zones. The zone levels are dependent upon the height of the trees.
The temperate deciduous forest gets its name because the temperatures are temperate meaning they are not extreme.
Temperate deciduous forests receive 30 - 60 inches of rain each year and are ranked second only to the rainforest as the rainiest biome.
