Transcript of Temperate Forest Biome

Temperate Deciduous
Forest Why is this Biome Significant? As previously stated global warming has a major effect on the temperate deciduous forests. It causes not only temperature changes but natural disasters and an increase in insects. These factors can increase tree deaths. It would also increase the amount of carbon dioxide but decrease moisture and general nutrients. Fossils fuels also emit nitrogen oxide, stimulating forest growth. However, this also causes acid rain, reducing the health of forests. • Is there a fear of climate change for this biome? Air pollutants from fuels we burn are destroying forests, killing the wildlife and poisoning the soil, clear cut logging and forest fires are endangering wildlife and global warming is causing droughts, floods, landslides, and windstorms. What are some Threats to this Biome? Portable shelter, flashlight sleeping bag, food, water, water purifiers, clothing, pots pans, utensils lighter or matches, cooler, jackets, raincoat, and a first aid kit. What Supplies Should You Bring? The average temperature is 75 degrees Fahrenheit but can be as high as 86 degrees Fahrenheit. The difference from regular trees, and trees in the deciduous forest is the leaves from the deciduous trees loose there leaves in the fall due to temperature changes. What is the Average Temperature? The Average precipitation ranges from 30 to 60 inches per year. What is the Average Precipitation? Grassland: The Greenway in North Dakota. You can enjoy several parks, campground, golf courses, disc golf courses, more than 20 miles of multi-purpose trails, shore fishing sites, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling. Taiga: Paradise Valley. You can walk to Lake Huron, relax poolside, enjoy paddle boats or visit one of the twelve quality golf courses that are nearby. Paradise Valley is located between the town of Forest and the area of Camlachie on Lakeshore Road. Badin Lake Campground: Badin Lake Campground borders a lake and sits inside of a shaded forest, offering a year-round retreat for swimmers, boaters and anglers in North Carolina. Badin Lake is a hub for outdoor activities, and the campground offers sites for both RV and tent campers Green Ridge State Forest: Green Ridge is the second largest of Maryland’s State Forest. The forest is located in the Ridge and Valley Province of the Allegheny Mountain chain. It has magnificent views of the surrounding area and can be seen from Point Lookout, Banners, Logroll, and Warrier Mountain Points of Interest There are many things to do in temperate deciduous forests such as mountain biking, fishing, picnicking, watching the wild life, and of course, camping. Recreational Avtivities Wood mice and squirrels both compete against one another for food and occasionally shelter. Another example of competition in this biome is between bears and raccoons, who compete against each other for food. Animals commonly found in these forests include bears, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, wood mice, and, in the U.S., deer. Migration and hibernation are the two most common adaptations these animals have to handle cold weathers but some animals store food in the hallow of trees for use in the winter. What are the Native Animals and their Adaptations? Various types of trees such as maple, oak, hickory, and beech, and evergreens, such as hemlock, spruce, and fir. In the spring they grow thin, broad, light-weight leaves useful for soaking up sunlight for photosynthesis. In the cooler months the tree cuts off the supply of water to the leaves and seals off the area between the leaf stem and the tree trunk. With less sunlight the leaves lose chlorophyll which makes them change color. Most of the trees also lose their leaves when it gets cold enough. What are the Native Plants and Adaptations? They have full changes in season (Fall, Winter Summer, Spring) rocks, soil, water, and air. What are its Abiotic Factors? Where is it? The temperate deciduous forest is important to the world because of all its biodiversity. This biome is home to a variety of species of plants, the only other biome with as many types of trees is the tropical biome. Many of the trees in this biome are used for lumber to make houses and other structures. If we didn’t have these forests it would much more difficult to build most things. This biome is one of the most popular biomes to visit for recreational camping and hiking and are often used as national parks. The Blue-Spotted Salamander, Long Eared Owl, and the Wood Turtle are all endangered species. Are there any Endangered Species? Adjacent Biomes to Visit Examples of Cooperation and Competition It is located between the polar regions and the tropics, mainly on the eastern part of the US and part of Europe. Where is it?
