Transcript of Purple - Temperate Deciduous Forest

White Tailed Dear Temperate Deciduous Forest Pecan Features:
Pecan trees are the largest hickory deciduous trees growing up to 180ft.

Its bark is deeply furrowed, scaly and pale-grey or whitish brown.

They also have tiny flower buds producing from March-May.

They produce 1-2 in. long and 1/2-1 in. diameter pecan nuts. The Lady Fern The Lady Fern is a plant that lives in the Temperate Deciduous Forests. Purple Temperate Deciduous Forest Temperate deciduous forests are located at mid-latitude between the tundra and tropic biomes. They are commonly found in the Eastern United States, China, Japan, Canada and Europe. Temperate deciuous forests receive an average precipitation of up to 75cm-150cm (29.5in-59in) per year. Interactions & Adaptations Habitat & Niche Duckbill Platypus Interactions & Adaptations Habitat & Niche Habitat & Niche Interactions & Adaptations American Black Bear Habitat & Niche Pecan trees live in moist bottom lands along streams from Indiana, south to Kentucky and Alabama, and from Iowa south to Texas. The pecan tree produces food to provide for herbivores and omnivores in its environment. Interactions & Adaptations Interactions & Adaptations Habitat & Niche Melissa Sherwood, Greg Colombo, Nicole Belanger, Justine Durand, Olivia Balduf Ms. Wilfert The duckbill platypus is a semi-aquatic mammal with a beaver-like tail, duck-like bill and webbed feet. The platypus usually lives for fifteen years. The platypus weighs between 1.5 lbs to 5.5 lbs. They are 26-30 inches long. Habitat: The duckbill platypus lives next to streams and rivers to dig its burrows. This platypus lives in eastern Australia and parts around it. Adaptations: The duckbill platypus has a flat tail. This tails helps the platypus swim and it stores fats for energy. Another adaptation is its special fur. The fur coat allows the platypus to trap heat under it so the animal can very cold water and still stay alive. Interactions: Duckbilled platypus interact with mainly only what they eat such as insect larvea and what eats them such as crocodiles. They also interact with the same species. Habitat- Are usually found in areas with lots of vegetation. They can also live in tundra, fields, or meadows. Features- Brown, black, or blond fur, a short stubby tail, and a brown muzzle. They can weigh 125 to 550 pounds. They eat honey, berries, salmon, small mammals, and plants. Adaptations- Black bears have a heavy coat to survive the winter. They can climb trees to retrieve food. Niche- These bears can be predators, but never prey. This is because they are large in size, making them undesirable to hunt. Interactions with other organisms- Black bears like to be left alone. Mother bears can be extremely aggressive and territorial near her cubs. Pecan trees shed their bark when there is a decrease of water availability in their habitat because it reduces transpiration and provides more water for the tree. Lady Ferns have a height that ranges from 2ft-3ft with light green leaves that have a lacy feel to them. The Lady Fern plays the role of the producer in its environment. One adaptation of the Lady Fern is that it is adapted to the cold climates that occur during the winters.

Another adaptation of the Lady Fern is that since the Lady Ferns leaves extend far, it is able to capture more sunlight than most plants at its level on the forest floor.

The Lady Fern only interacts with the animals that eat it such as deer and other herbivores that lives in temperate deciduous forests. Least Weasel Fat Dormouse Cardinal Yellow-bellied Sapsucker Goshawk Coyote Eastern Chipmunk Raccoon Niche: The duckbill platypus is a semi aquatic mammal and is also one of the few mammals in the world to lay eggs. It is also one of the very few mammals to be venomous. Because the platypus has to teeth it has to grind its food. Therefore it eats small food such as insect larvae Facinating fact: Duckbill platypuses can consume their body weight in food in less than 24 hours! Habitat: the white tailed deer prefers forest and farmland areas.

Niche: White tailed deer often live in mixed forest areas and feed on a variety of plant material they serve as a food source for some larger predators. Adaptations to biome: The white tailed deer's color allows it to camouflage with the undergrowth, The white tailed deer also has amazing eyesight and hearing, their sense of smell is what they primarily use to detect danger.

Interactions with other organisms: They interact with foot worms, liver flukes, some tapeworms, grey wolf, coyotes, bears, cougar, and mountain lions. The White tailed deer can grow up to be 3-3.5 and can weigh anything from 200-400 pounds.
Role in food chain: The white tailed deer is the primary consumer. White Tailed Deer in its habitat This Picture shows the White Tailed Deers niche and how it relies on other organisms. White Tailed Deer interact with wolves beause wolves are their predators The two pictures above show the adaptaion of the white tailed deer and how the color of their coat changes during different seasons. Temperature ranges by season:
Summer: 70°F-86°F(21°C-30°C)
Fall: 40°F-60°F(4°C-16°C)
Winter: 32°F and below(0°C and below)
Spring: 40°F-60°F(4°C-16°C) The tops of pecan trees are shaped like a crown so gusts of wind can pass through freely. Squirrels, chipmunks, woodpeckers and other wild birds eat the pecans produced by the tree for food. This is the duckbill platypus in its habitat fingdng food with its bill (niche) Looking at the tail one can tell its flat which helps the platypus swim. The claws on the platypus helps it dig its burrow. Looking at the bill one can see it is flat which helps it dig insects out of the ground for food. This platypus is swimming around looking for food. Temperate deciduous forests are full of plant and animal life. All four seasons occur where temperate deciduous forests are present. Winters and falls are typically cold and snowy. Springs and summers are warm and rainy. The lady fern lives in the temperate deciduous forest at the bottom layer of the forest. The lady fern survives in its environment by dying during the winter months, and coming back to life during the summer months.

The lady fern is also the producer in its environment. It provides food for other animals such as ominvores and herbivores. Common Lime
