Temperate Woodland and Shrubland

Shona Webb; 4P


In the summer it is really dry and the temperature can get up to 100 degrees. In the winter the temperature is about 50 degrees and that's when this biome gets most of its precipitation.


Plants have become for fire resistant and live off little water while animals have learned not to be too picky with what they eat.

Some of the land forms the temperate woodland and shubland has are mountains and plains.

The plants have ways leave to retain moisture. Many plants are now fire resistant. Some produce flammable oils, so in the summer they start fires when its dry and hot. Most animals aren't very picky about what they eat because they have a varied diet. The grassland camouflages animals from its predators.


Wild fires, poor soil, hot and dry summers, and moist and mild winters.
