Temperate Forest Power Point

  1. 1. Temperate Forest. <br />ForestaTemperata<br />By: Jake Davis & Jonathan Rodrigues<br />
  2. 2. General description<br />Areas with high levels of precipitation, humidity and contain a variety of deciduous trees. They loose their leaves in the winter. <br />
  3. 3. Abiotic Factors<br />Precipitation Range: 20-60 inches<br />
  4. 4. Map of Temperate Forests around the world<br />
  5. 5. Location<br />Eastern Asia<br />Central and Western Europe<br />Eastern United States<br />
  6. 6. Climate<br />Seasons: winter, fall, spring, and summer.<br />Range of temps.<br /> - Lows of -22° F (Winter)<br /> - Highs of 86° F (Summer)<br />

  23. 23. Other Info:<br />Temperate forests are made up of a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees, with most plant species being deciduous.<br />They have four separate seasons, with one of them being a cold or cool-dry winter.<br />The growing season is 140-200 days long. Temperate forests have an annual precipitation (rain and maybe snow) of 75-150cm, and it is spread throughout the year.<br />
  24. 24. Different types of temperate forests are named based on the amount of water they receive and in what form they receive it:<br />moist coniferous forests<br />evergreen broad-leaved forests<br />dry coniferous forests<br />temperate coniferous forests<br />temperate broad-leaved rainforests<br />Other Info:<br />
  25. 25. Temperate forests are found around the world in a broad area between the tropics and the Polar Regions.<br />The largest areas of temperate deciduous forest are found in western and central Europe, parts of Russia, northeastern Asia, Chile, and along the western coast of Canada and the U.S.A.<br />In the southern hemisphere, Australia and New Zealand have broad-leaved evergreen forests.<br />Other Info:<br />
  26. 26. The annual temperature in temperate forests can vary between -30°C and 30°C, depending on where they are located. (-22°F to 86°F) <br />These important forest ecosystems are most commonly threatened by logging for farming, housing, and timber, as well as by air and water pollution.<br />Other Info:<br />
  27. 27. Animals commonly found in temperate forests include various species of squirrels, rabbits, skunks, birds, deer, wolves, foxes, weasels, bears, and cat species such as mountain lions and bobcats.<br />Most of the animals found in temperate forests specialize in eating nuts and acorns or feed on plants and other animals.<br />Common trees are species of oak, maple, beech, chestnut, hickory, elm, walnut and sweet gum.  Ferns and small shrubs are also common.<br />Other Info:<br />
