Temperate Deciduous Forest Tour
Transcript of Temperate Deciduous Forest Tour
Often covers the ground, stream beds, & bases of trees
Golden green in spring
Turns almost velvety with age
Leaves grow parallel & end at a point
Edges have long, narrow cells that grow in pairs
Margins look serrated
Carpets forest floor
Staying close makes it easier to reproduce & prevents from being eaten
Can reproduce asexually or sexually
Spores can distribute widely
Absorbs water through pores that are always open & require constant moisture

It is the hottest month
Summer is the hottest season
Autumn begins in September
It's warm and sunny at the beginning
It gradually turns colder and foggier by November
Winter begins in December
Polish winter is usually grey and wet.
The days become shorter
Spring begins at the start of March

Average rainfall is 30 to 60 in.
Snow in the winter
Rain in the spring
Temperature is 25-64ºF
The humidity is 60% to 80%
Winds come from the sea breeze & the halny
The winds in Poland are typically weak to moderate
The Land &

A tall, stately tree
Lives up to 500 years old
120-130 ft tall
Bushy side shoots grow along trunk near the ground
Lower branches arch out
Blisters from aphids and sap-sucking insects
Flowers are yellowish to dull white. Flattened clusters of 4-10 on a stalk.

Not opposite each other
4-7 in wide

Member of the Honeysuckle family
Bark is used for herbal medication
3-5 inches across
Berries are brightly colored to attract birds that spread seeds
Flowers attract insects for pollination
Survival Tip- The berries are poisonous to humans unless cooked
Bodies of Water and Landforms
Lakes & rivers drain into the Baltic Sea
The northern regions are hilly
Flat fertile farmlands dominate the Central
Lowlands Sudetic & Carpathian Mountain ranges
The longest river in Poland is the Vistula
From the Baltic lowlands, Poland's land rises gently into tree-covered hilly areas
During fall, leaves change color
During winter, leaves fall off
During summer & spring leaves grow
Nutrient-rich soil because of decaying leaves during the winter and fall.
Decomposers break down dead leaves, returning nutrients to the soil.
There are five layers found in the temperate deciduous forest biome-Ground Layer, Herb Layer, Shrub Layer, Small Tree Layer, & Top Layer
Survival Tip- You can use wood to build houses/shelter
Plants may be boring, but I like them...(just kidding)
24 to 36 inches tall
Light green leaves are 24 to 30" long and 6 to 9" wide
Grow in a group in the shape of a circle
They grow in most semi-shaded areas
Reproduce by thick, scaly rhizomes and spores
Loses leaves at first frost
tolerant of sun and dry soil.
Plants lean toward the sun
and they soak up nutrients in the ground. Deciduous Trees have broad leaves that capture lots of sunlight. They have thick bark to protect themselves against the cold winters. Deciduous trees lose leaves in autumn to minimize water loss.
Many birds migrate to find food. They hibernate during the cold seasons. Small animals store food to use during winter when food is scarce. Animals can also be camouflaged to look like the ground!!
Many parts of Asia
Southwest Russia, Japan, and eastern China
South America- southern Chile and Middle East coast of Paraguay
Now let's explore Poland's climate!
Hey, it's me again! Now onto the land and bodies of water!
The using and spreading of awareness for renewable energy sources such as:
Making national parks to preserve temperate deciduous forests
Humans rip down trees & plants, for paper, chairs, tables, etc.
They take foods: nuts, berries, animals, fish, etc.
Humans cause pollution by all of the heavy machinery. Gas, oil & other wastes that can poison, hurt, or kill animals
Building farms and other buildings
Deforestation ruins animals’ homes/habitats
Global climate change
Wolf & Raven:
Ravens scavenge for wolf kills. Wolves watch ravens for signs of danger & food.
Squirrels live in the cavities of the trees. The trees aren’t affected because the cavities already exist.
Tapeworms live in deer. They can sometimes cause death of the deer they are feeding on.
Lynx hunt birds & rabbits for food.
