    Temperate Forest Biome Temperate Forest Biome Presentation Transcript

    • 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
      • Temperate Forests contains a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees and plants.
      • There are also many types of different animals such as squirrels, deer, bears and mice.
    • Climate (Average Annual Temperatures and Precipitation)
      • Cold to moderate winters; warm summers; year-round precipitation; fertile soils,
      • Average temperatures 25 degrees Celsius
    • Plants that live in a Temperate Forest
      • Broad leaf
      • Deciduous Trees
      • Conifers
      • Flowering Shrubs
      • Herbs
      • Ground layer of mosses
      • Ferns
    • Some Animals that live in a Temperate Forest
      • Deer
      • Black Bears
      • Bobcats
      • Squirrels
      • Mice
      • Snakes
      • Racoons
      • Turkeys
    • A Food Chain for the Temperate Forest
      • Sun -> Grass -> Grasshopper -> Mouse -> Snake -> Owl -> Fox -> Turkey Vulture
    • Food Web of the Temperate Forest
    • Energy Pyramid
        10% Energy is transferred, 90% of transferred energy is used for heat.
    • 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.
      • 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.
      • Parasitism – Ex. Beech Drops in Ohio, they have no chlorophyl and live entirely on the sap of the beech tree.
    • Environmental Damage
      • A huge problem in the Temperate forest is deforestation.
      • Deforestation is the loss of forests due to over cutting of trees.
      • One consequence of deforestation is soil erosion, which results in the loss of protective soil cover.
