Deciduous Forest Biome

By: Madison Keel

Where is the Deciduous Forest located?

Deciduous forests can be found in the eastern half of North America, and the middle of Europe.

What is the climate like in the Deciduous forest?

One thing that is interesting about this biome and its climate is that it has four distinct seasons; spring, summer, autumn, and winter. Most deciduous forests have mild summers averaging about 70 °F. Summer months usually begin in early June and end in late August. Winter months don't begin until December. Winter temperatures are fairly cool with an average temperature of a little below freezing. Almost all of the world's deciduous forest is located by an ocean. The ocean and the wind are two big factors of why the temperature and climate change so much in this biome.
