Temperate Forest Biome Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Temperate Forest Biome
    • A Temperate Forest is most likely found in eastern United States; southeast Canada; most of Europe; and parts of Japan, China and Australia
    • 2. Temperate Forests contains a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees and plants.
    • 3. There are also many types of different animals such as squirrels, deer, bears and mice.
  • 4. Climate (Average Annual Temperatures and Precipitation)
    • Cold to moderate winters; warm summers; year-round precipitation; fertile soils,
    • 5. Average temperatures 25 degrees Celsius
  • 6. Plants that live in a Temperate Forest
    • Broad leaf
    • 7. Deciduous Trees
    • 8. Conifers
    • 9. Flowering Shrubs
    • 10. Herbs
    • 11. Ground layer of mosses
    • 12. Ferns
  • 13. Some Animals that live in a Temperate Forest
    • Deer
    • 14. Black Bears
    • 15. Bobcats
    • 16. Squirrels
    • 17. Mice
    • 18. Snakes
    • 19. Racoons
    • 20. Turkeys
  • 21. A Food Chain for the Temperate Forest
    • Sun -> Grass -> Grasshopper -> Mouse -> Snake -> Owl -> Fox -> Turkey Vulture
  • 22. Food Web of the Temperate Forest
  • 23. Energy Pyramid
      10% Energy is transferred, 90% of transferred energy is used for heat.
  • 24. Symbiotic Relationships
    • Mutualism – Ex. A Fungus provides the plant with an increased ability to absorb nutrients and water and often offers disease resistance to the plant.
    • 25. Commensalism – Ex. Moss or Algae live on the bark of a tree. The tree is unaffected by this and the moss and algae have a place to live.
    • 26. Parasitism – Ex. Beech Drops in Ohio, they have no chlorophyl and live entirely on the sap of the beech tree.
  • 27. Environmental Damage
    • A huge problem in the Temperate forest is deforestation.
    • 28. Deforestation is the loss of forests due to over cutting of trees.
    • 29. One consequence of deforestation is soil erosion, which results in the loss of protective soil cover.
