Deciduous Forest in Southeast Asia
Transcript of Deciduous Forest in Southeast Asia
in Southeast Asia
The northeast Asian deciduous forest biome is located on the continent of Asia at about 30° to 45° North latitude, and about 130° to 145° East longitude.
The biome covers parts of Korea, China, Russia, and Japan.
The precipitation is spread out evenly throughout the year.
Since precipitation is spread out evenly throughout the year, the animals and plants have to make many adaptations to live in this area.
The climate is divided into four different seasons with winter being very cold and summer being warm and humid
The average yearly temperature is 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
The average annual rainfall is 30 to 60 inches.
Summer is different and many typhoons occur.
The first is the forest floor which has moss, ferns and lichen.
The second is the shrub layer, which has plants like rhododendrons and huckleberries.
The third is the tree stratum, which has trees like maples, oaks and sometimes conifers.
Three main layers of growth are found here:
Medicinal plant called the Asian ginseng
Daurian birch (tend to grow in drier spaces).
Daurian buckthorn (Rhamnus dahuricus)
Loose flower hornbean
Shrubs bush clover
Japanese stone pine
Asiatic black bears
Japanese Macaque (endangered; Omnivore)
Red-crowned Cranes (endangered)
-means "falling off at maturity" or "tending to fall off", and is typically used in reference to trees or shrubs that lose their leaves seasonally, and to the shedding of other plant structures such as petals after flowering or fruit when ripe.
The bamboo plant has adapted to growing in the cleared areas of the forest, rather then the shady ground floor.
Patches of forest can still be seen in some places where it has been protected for religious reasons, or where the land is steep and inaccessible.
There is a breeding shelter to protect endangered red-crowned cranes and Saunders gulls lies, called the Shuangtai Itekou Nature Reserve.
The Northeast Asian deciduous forest conservation status is critical and endangered
There's an extensive farming in the Northeast China Plain.
In recent decades heavy logging has extensively changed much of the forest.
Timber harvesting, over-harvesting, and fires have also dramatically reduced the amount of Asian ginseng, which is rare, or extinct in most of eastern Asia.
The Northeast China Plain is intensively
farmed for wheat mainly, so very little
traces of the original forest remain.

Where is it Located?
Hopefully the deciduous forest
will never fully disappear!
