Transcript of "Temperate Forest Biome"

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