Temperate Deciduous Forest Biome

by Brandon Brodwater


The whole of North Carolina is considered to be a temperate deciduous forest biome. I feel that it pertains more highly to the Piedmont and Coastal Plain regions. The climate of this biome is fairly warm, with lots of rainfall. They average 30-60 inches of rain per year.


There are many different kinds of plants and animals in this biome. The vegetation includes mainly trees, yet also mosses, pines, and bushes. The animals include mainly organisms that thrive in fairly moderate temperatures. This includes foxes, birds, squirrels, and many other forest-esque animals.
