Temperate Woodland and Shrubland Biome Human Influence
By:Lorena Molina
4th Period Mrs.Hulse Biology

Do humans Typically live in the "temperate wood land and shrubland". If so how many?
The usage of shrubland for growing grain and commercial crops is very widespread.
This, in turn, drastically decreases animals' populations (no more homes to live in), and kills many of the evergreen shrubs naturally found in the temperate shrublands. Also Almost all habitats have either been created or changed by man, including hedgerows, heathlands, high moors, marshes, fens, water meadows, ponds, rivers and streams. These habitats have been reduced drastically by expanding human population.
How have humans affected these areas?
How do humans adapted to live in these areas? How do they get food, water,shelter?
Yes Humans do live in this area. Also not specified the approximate amount.
Has global warming or population affected this biome?
Global warming is when too much carbon dioxide enters the atmosphere causing what scientists call the greenhouse effect. This is when the earth’s temperature increases. Scientists are not exactly sure how this will affect the plants and animals in the temperate forests, but they do know that global warming does effect plant growth.
Any Interesting facts?
This biome expresses interesting examples of convergent evolution ( The evolution of species from different taxonomic groups toward a similar form; the development of similar characteristics by taxonomically different organisms).
All plant life is less than a meter long
Leaves on the evergreen trees are small
Workers strip the cork from cork oak trees
Most of the animals are small and nocturnal
Humans get there food from the plants and animals surrounding the biome or in the biome as well. They get shelter from building.
