Transcript

  • 1. Deciduous Forest
  • 2. What is a deciduous forest?
    • Deciduous means “falling off or at a certain season”
    • Leaves fall off of trees in the winter
  • 3. The Five Zones
    • The Tree Stratum
    • Small Tree and Sapling
    • Shrub
    • Herb
    • Ground
  • 4.  
  • 5. Where Are They?
    • Eastern North America
    • Middle Europe
    • Some parts of Asia
    • Chile
    • Eastern Coast of Paraguay
    • New Zealand
    • Southeastern Australia
  • 6.  
  • 7. Climate
    • The Deciduous Forest has a Moist Continental Climate
    • 4 seasons
    • Generally mild (summer: 70 degrees, winter: 32 degrees)
    • Rainfall - 14 inches during winter and 18 inches during summer
    • Oceans cause climate
  • 8. Soil
    • Fertile
    • Great agriculture regions are found here
    • Most deciduous forests found in North America are second growth forests
  • 9. Threats
    • Air pollutants from burning fuels kill wildlife and poison the soil
    • Humans interfere with the cycles of natural forest fires
  • 10. Threats Continued
    • Acid rain damages leaves and causes production of smaller fruit and less seeds used in reproduction.
    • Global Warming is steadily increasing temperatures which causes less precipitation. This leads to less growth in the forests.
  • 11. More Threats
    • Clearing land for agriculture and logging
    • Human occupation
    • Introduction of non-native plants and animal species cause competition for food and habitats which results in the endangerment of native species
    • Mining causes forest not to re-grow on damaged and depleted soils
  • 12. Animal Adaptations
    • The Downy Woodpecker has adapted to live in the deciduous forest.
    • Reinforced head and sharp beak
    • Barbed tongue
    • Ability to eat insects and berries outside of tree
  • 13. Plant Adaptations
    • Flowering plants have adapted to living in the deciduous forest
    • Pollen for insufficient water supply
    • Showy flowers aid in capturing of pollen
  • 14. Links of Interest
