  • This biome has four changing seasons including winters, spring, summer, and fall. Trees and plants in deciduous forests have special adaptions to survive in this biome. Animals in deciduous forests have to adapt to changing seasons.

Abiotic and Biotic Factors

  • The average yearly precipitation is 30-60 inches. The average temperature in temperate deciduous forests is 50ºF (10º). Summers are mild, and average about 70ºF.
  • Bears, Tigers, Fish, Wolves, Birds, Snakes etc.
  • Euphorbia Hirta, Lantana Camera, Dryopteris Species

Ecological concerns or issues

  • Forest fires are the most common catastrophic events. The trees are burned down, making it difficult for the forest and animals. Droughts and storms are catastrophic as well.
  • Cutting down trees and killing animals are things humans do to the forest also deforestation is what humans do.
