Continental Humid Climate (dfa/dfb)
Transcript of Continental Humid Climate (dfa/dfb)
These reptiles are located from Slovenia to Ukraine, and can grow up to 13cm.
The tail can be as twice as long as the animal’s own body.
Diet consists of insects, mice, and other smaller lizards.
The European Green Lizards have adapted to live a humid climatic area, by surviving in forests and grasslands located in Central Europe.
It sheds its tail when it is in danger and then regrows it later on.
These lizards like warm temperatures and like to spend some time to bask in the heat. Continental Humid Climate(dfa/dfb) Presentation Bishrab Sen
and Sai Javangula SWISS PINES
The Swiss Pines are located in Europe that appears in areas such as the Carpathian Mountains and the Alps in Central Europe.
•Swiss Pines have adapted to the humid continental climate in cold areas such as the Alps and the cold winters that Central Europe is known for.
Swiss Pines can withstand cold weather down to -50 degrees Celsius. STAGHORN SUMAC
•The Rhus Typhina or the Staghorn Sumac is a type of plant situated in the MIdwest.
Staghorn Sumac is mostly grown as a decorative or ornamental plant.
•This plant can survive in many different climate conditions, but it has adapted to the humid continental climate's soil.
Staghorn Sumac is mostly found on poor soil that is too dry for other plants to grow on.
Staghorn Sumac grows in soil in the Midwest where there is abundant precipitation. General Small Scale Map Fun Facts This is what dfa and dfb stands for...
d: Severe Mid-Latitude
a: Warmest month averages above 22 °C (71.6 °F)
dfb: Does not meet the requirements for a, but there still are at least four months above 10 °C (50 °F). Dfa and Dfb climatic regions are warm and hot in the summer, but the temperatures cool down in the winter.
Coniferous Forests and Deciduous Forests are abundant in this climatic region, coming from north to south respectively.
Temperate Grasslands also occupy the area of the humid continental climatic zone.
This region receives sufficient precipitation, between 20-50 inches of rainfall. Snowfall is not uncommon Common Locations
Northern Plains (US)
Japan Lily of the Valley
•Convallaria majalis or Lily of the Valley is a highly poisonous woodland plant that is located in Eurasia and Japan.
•This plant has adapted to the humid continental climate in the forests in which it is located. Honey Locust
Honey Locust is a deciduous tree found in the American Midwest.
This tree has adapted to the humid continental climate by surviving in the Northern Plains, where few trees survive.
Honey Locust can tolerate heat, which makes it valuable for places where shade is needed. FAUNA Fallow Deer
The Fallow Deer is an animal native to Eurasia where it has resided in the grasslands.
Fallow Deer are slightly larger than goats.
These mammals prefer to graze in grasslands and woodlands.
The deer have a home range where their herd will graze on.
Fallow Deer have adapted to the humid continental climate in the meadows of Central Europe.
During periods of warmth the deer grazes and relaxes in the shade.
Fallow Deer use the tree’s cover and undergrowth to look for winter food. Koi
Koi is a type of carp specially bred as ornamental fish in aquariums and ponds popular in Japan.
Koi have adapted to the humid continental climate by building up a tolerance of cold.
The ornamental carp can withstand temperatures as low as 4 degrees Celsius.
Tolerance is helpful for the cold winters from this climatic region.
The koi have also adapted to live with low oxygen levels and low water quality. Red Squirrel
The Red Squirrel is a type of omnivorous tree squirrel located in Eurasia.
The Red Squirrel is found in coniferous forests.
The Red Squirrel has adapted to the humid continental climate in these forests.
The rodents maintain a strict schedule.
Red Squirrels gather food such as hazelnuts, berries and bird eggs in the morning and evening.
Rests in its nest during the day, avoiding the heat and birds of prey.
In the winters the squirrel stays holed up in its nest for days at a time. Lily of the Valley can take in full sun, even in areas where the temperature is cooler.
This flower spreads quickly, because of an underground system known as Rhizomes.
Lily of the Valley can survive subzero temperatures.
These flowers prefer moist soil, FLORA HUMAN IMPACT Humans have impacted the continental
humid climatic regions, mostly because of
two main reasons. 1. Deforestation 2. Air Pollution Humans have cut down wood from deciduous and coniferous forests, which are housed in the humid continental climatic region.
Wood is used for many modern appliances such as: houses, furniture, and other constructions.
More than half of the world's timber and 72% of paper is consumed by 22% of the world's population (the United States, Europe, and Japan). Air Pollution has been the result of factories, cars, and other technological advances.
In the dfa/dfb climate, there are larger levels of air pollution than in other countries. The temperature of dfa/dfb regions is varied and often differentiates with other climate zones.
The average temperature for locations in this climate zone is 46 degrees Fahrenheit (7.7 degrees Celsius).
The amount of Precipitation subsiding on the region appears to be consistent and rarely is there an excess or dearth.
The Mean amount of Precipitation that is falling on the areas is considered to be about 43 inches, a low amount that is just needed enough to sustain life. Illustration Cfa The Lily of the Valley is often used in weddings as most people don"t even know it is a poisonous floral plant. FLORIDA Deforestation is the effect of humans:
Endangering or or clearig the natural habitats and trees
Expanding the spread of greenhouse gasses and heating up the planet by 0.8 degrees causing bushfires and other causes of destructio to trees.
