Transcript of Temperate Evergreen Forest Biome

Temperate Evergreen Forests By:
Kristin Sigler What is a Temperate
Evergreen Forest? A Temperate Evergreen Forest is also called
a Coniferous Forest. It is a forest full of coniferous
trees (imagine that). Coniferous trees are trees
that spread their seeds through pine cones.
This biome is kind of something in between a
Tiaga and a Temperate Deciduous Forest but
falls in it's own special catatgory. Plants Animals Other Stuff Biotic Abiotic Rainfall: Average Annual Rainfall:
14-29.5 inches
Summer Temperature: Winter Temperature: Average Summer Temperature:
57.2 Degrees Farenheit Average Winter Temperature:
14 Degrees Farenheit Location: Coniferous Trees Pine Cones
Needles Conifers use pine cones to spread seeds instead of fruits or flowers
In spring, the cones become two different types- those that produce pollen, and those that fertilize the wind blown pollen These trees can keep their needles for years The needles are full of resin to make them distasteful to herbivores Needles are not as efficient at capturing sunlight, but help them make it through the cold winter without much water loss. What Kind of Trees
are Conifers? Fir Trees Lurch Trees Sequoia Trees Spruce Trees Other Plants Ferns Fire weed Mosses And
Mushrooms Birds, insects, and mammals make up the majority of coniferous forests animals. Many of the animals here hibernate in the winter Mutualism: The squirrel finds protection
and shelter in the pine/oak
tree and in turn spreads seeds
for the tree Commensalism The bird will nest in the
spruce and benefit but the
tree will remain neutral. Parasitism Spanish moss deprives the
tree of sunlight and slows
or stops the growth of the tree. Food Web There are coniferous trees in most national parks but some of the largest are:
The Redwood Forest
Sequoia National Forest/Monument Some of the main environmental damages to
coniferous or temperate evergreen forests
are acid rain, air pollution, and cutting trees down
for paper, lumber, or to build property. Some ways we can fix this are to recycle
our paper, stop property expansion into the forests, and stop putting pollutants into the air. Fun Facts! Coniferous forests make up 1/3 of the world's land Some trees in the Redwood forest are the size
of 30 story building. You can drive your car
through the trunk of some too. Redwood trees live thousands of years "General Sherman" is a sequoia tree and is the
largest living thing in the world. The End By:
Kristin Sigler The honey bee gets it's pollen to make
honey and at the same time spreads the
pollen for the flower The mosquito drinks the blood
of the animal and gains neutrients
while harming the other animal Non- parastic fungi absorb the nutrients
from the decomposing matter around a tree.
The tree is not harmed Some More Animals
