food web of the temperate deciduous
In the temperate deciduous forest there is an ecosystem where the coyote is the top predator. The coyote is an omnivore which means that it is both a herbivore and a carnivore. The coyote is a consumer that is known to kill their prey and eat it. One of a coyote's main foods in its diet is the rabbit. The rabbit is a herbivore who mainly eats grass. The grass the rabbit eats is a producer because the grass provides food for the rabbit. In the grass lives worms, mushrooms, and fungi.They are all decomposers who are all called in to clean up the rabbit one the coyote eats it therefore returning the rabbit back into the soil.

animals and plants in the temperate deciduous biome
The Temperate Deciduous Forest Biome By: Lauren Mayo / Period 3
diet: pollen, honey, nectar
The bee pollinates the plant and the plant gives the bee nectar. (mutralism)
When there is no prey around, the Coyote is forced to eat berries to survive. While eating these berries, they will sometimes fall and spread across the forest. The seeds sprout into new Blackberry Shrubs. (mutralism)
the American beech tree and a plant called beech drops. Beech drops are only found growing under beech trees. Although they are flowering plants, they have no chlorophyll and live entirely on sap stolen from the beech tree. The beech drops have a special root structure called a haustorium which connects them to the host plant. (parasitism)
moss may live on the bark of a tree
natural disasters and climate
Some natural disasters that happen in the temperate deciduous forest are deadly forest fires, acidic rain and floods that can ruin the forest.
yearly average rainfall:75 to 125cm(29.5 to 49 in)
summer:28 degrees C(82 degrees F)
winter:6 degrees C(43 degrees F)
remember this chart is in Celsius

the Sycamore lace bug attach to the leaves of the sycamores to suck out the juices. (parasitism)
sycamore lace bug
diet: sycamore leaves
diet: deer, rabbits
endangered animals and plants in the temperate deciduous forest
the gray wolf- humans continue to move in on the animal's territory which gives the wolf no place to live.
animals (only 1)
In the Temperate Deciduous Forest, humans harvest for wood, timber, and charcoal. Plus, humans hunt for deer, and other animals.
trees, other plants
diet:the sediment on the bottom of lakes, rivers, and streams
emerald ash borer
diet: ash trees
diet: grasses, roots,
acorns, fruits, insects
amphibians, and dead
other fish but also eat
frogs, crayfish and
northern snakehead fish, zebra mussle, emerald ash borer, feral swine, asian carp
kudzu, honeysuckle, buckthorn, garlic mustard, giant hogweed
natural resources and their uses
trees- is to give shelter and food to wildlife
plants- to create oxygen and food for wildlife
animals- can be limiting factors to keep the population in the ecosystem's carrying capacity.
native people in the temperate deciduous forest
THE SEMINOLE TRIBE-
In the 1700's, many Indians from Georgia and Florida tribes--Creeks, Miccosukees, Hitchitis, and Oconees--joined together for protection. These tribes originally had unique cultural identities, but they soon merged into a unified Seminole nation. Over the next century, Native Americans from other tribes and African-Americans who escaped from slavery crossed the border into Florida to join the Seminoles too.
THE CREEK TRIBE-
The white settlers called them Creek Indians after Ocmulgee Creek in Georgia. They originally called themselves Isti or Istichata, but began to identify themselves as Muskogee soon after Europeans arrived.
THE ALGONQUIAN TRIBE-
Algonquin" was the French name for the tribe. The French were probably trying to pronounce elehgumoqik, the Maliseet word for "our allies," or Algoomaking, a Mi'kmaq place name. The Algonquins call themselves Anishnabe, which means "original person." (The plural is Anishnabek.) However, Algonquins use Anishnabek to refer to other Indians also. So when they are specifically referring to their tribe, they usually use "Algonquins" or "Algonkins" to distinguish themselves.
THE CHICKSAW TRIBE-
Chickasaw is pronounced "CHICK-a-saw." It comes from their own tribal name, Chikasha, which was the name of a legendary Chickasaw leader.
THE SHAWNEE TRIBE-
Shawnee is pronounced "shaw-NEE." It comes from the Shawnee word shawanwa, which means "southerner." In history books, you can sometimes see the same name spelled Shawano or Sewanee.
THE CHOCTAW TRIBE-
The Choctaws are original people of the American southeast, particularly Mississippi, Alabama, Louisiana, and Florida. Most Choctaws were forced to move to Oklahoma in the 1800's along the Trail of Tears. Their descendants live in Oklahoma today. Some Choctaws escaped by hiding or pretending to be white, and descendants of these people are still living in the original Choctaw homelands.
