  • 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.

    • A huge problem in the Temperate forest is deforestation.
    • 28. Deforestation is the loss of forests due to over cutting of trees.
