3  Oak Tree  Birch Tree  Flowering Dogwood  Red Maple Tree  Eastern Hemlock  Witch Hazel  Beech Tree  Sugar Maple  Tawny Owls  Salamander  Black Bear  Bobwhite Quail  Northern Copperhead  White-tailed Deer  Eastern Cottontail Rabbit

4 Blueberry Bush North American Red Fox Eastern Cottontail Rabbit Gray Wolf Fungi

5 -Among the first biomes to be converted to agricultural use -Five layers: -1. Tree stratum -2.Small tree or sapling layer -3.Shrub layer -4. Herb layer. -5. Ground layer - produces 6000 Kilocalories of plant tissue per square meter per year

6 Temperate Deciduous Forest

7 Temperature: average- 75°F (24°C) - 86°F (30°C), depending on altitude. Precipitation: average- 2 to 5 feet ( m) each year (rain and snow). humidity average- 60% to 80%. Solar Insulation: 4 Seasons -> Winter- plants and trees become dormant. -> Spring- leaves grow back and photosynthesis begins again. -> Summer- sun creates energy for plants and heavy growth occurs. -> Fall- the chlorophyll begin to decompose which is reason for leave color changes. Limiting Factors: Limited growth season- 6 months in a year growing takes place. Growth is limited the other months because of temperature induced drought.

11 Interesting Facts Location: Europe: British Isles and France through central and eastern Europe East Asia: the Russian far East, Manchuria, Korea and Japan. North America: Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean and south to the Gulf of Mexico. 5 Layers to a Temperate Deciduous Forest 1.Tree Stratum 2. Small Tree/ Sapling 3. Shrub 4. Herb 5. Ground According to the IWC Habitat Awareness Board, Racky at Risk says…. … there are many threats to the Temperate Deciduous forest, here is a list of some: 1- air pollutants from fuel burned are destroying the environments. 2- acid rain is destroying the forests causing plants to make less seeds 3- human occupation 4- forest fires 5- mining destroys the land These threats are causing the forests and animals population to decrease. This biome is the most altered in the world and if not stopped future generations of animals and trees will have no home
