Natural Resources

Temperate deciduous forests provide three key resources:

  1. food
  2. timber
  3. oxygen


Acid rain damages the the trees, making their seeds smaller and less in number. It also caused them to get more diseases. People also cut down the trees for timber and to farm the ground because it is so high in nutrients.

We can protect this biome by recycling papers products (newspapers, use both sides of the paper). Instead of using paper towels in the bathroom, install hand dryers to cut down on waste.


Interesting Finds:

There are five layers or zones in the deciduous forest:

  1. ground layer
  2. herb layer
  3. shrub layer
  4. sapling layer
  5. tree stratum
