Transcript of Temperate Forest
Temperate forests are areas with high levels of precipitation, humidity and contain a variety of deciduous trees.
Plants and Animals
Types of Temperate Forest
Temperatures range from hot, in the summer with 86 degrees Fahrenheit, to extremely cold, in the winter with - 22 degrees Fahrenheit.
Temperate forests receive abundant amounts of precipitation, usually between 20-60 inches of precipitation annually, in the form of rain or snow.
Central and Western Europe
Eastern United States
Temperate forests are able to support a wide variety of plant life and vegetation. This exists in several layers ranging from lichens and mosses on the ground layer to large tree species like oak and hickory that stretch high above the forest floor.
Maple trees, Walnut trees, Birch trees
Dogwoods, Redbuds, Shadbush
Azaleas, Mountain Laurel, Huckleberries
Blue Bead Lily, Indian Cucumber, Wild Sarsaparilla
Lichens and Mosses
Deciduous means "the dropping of a part that is no longer needed" or "falling away after its purpose is finished".
Plants with deciduous foliage lose their leaves to conserve water or to better survive winter weather conditions. They must regrow new foliage during the next suitable growing season.
Losing leaves in winter may reduce damage from insects; repairing leaves and keeping them functional may be more costly than just losing and regrowing them.
It is a forest consisting entirely or mainly of evergreen trees that retain green foliage all year round.
Evergreen forest is commonly dominated by hardy trees that can deal with sandy, rocky, and various other soils of poor quality.
It is under threat of logging, mining, oil and gas developments, pollution, hydroelectric projects and other human developments planned in these areas around the world.
Temperate forests are home to a wide variety of animals. They have to deal with the cold and lack of food in winter.
Some animals hibernate during the winter and arise in spring when food is more plentiful. Other animals store food and burrow underground to escape the cold. Many animals escape the harsh conditions by migrating to warmer regions in winter.
