General characteristics- The deciduous forests have a few main characteristics. They have changing seasons, and within each season the trees and plants change. The trees in the forest can grow to be very large. Or they don't. The bark on the tree is really rough. Some trees are really thick some trees aren't.
Temperature- the temperature is changing from each season. In the winter the temperature is usually around 30 deggrees farenhite to 40 degrees farenhite. In the spring it is around 50 degrees farenhite give or take a few. In the summer it is the hottest time of the year, it is around 70 degrees farenhite give or take a few. In the fall it is getting colder from summer. In the fall it about 50 degrees farenhite.
Precipitation- the amount of precipitation in the deciduous forest is a pretty big amount. It is so big that the deciduous forest is right behind the rainforest in amount of precipitation. It rains throughout the year in the forest. The average precipitation of the forest is from 30 inches of rain to 60 inches of rain.
More facts about abiotic features- we can sometimes prevent acid rain to the forest and damage it. There is also trash every where on most places of the forest. This is not good for the soil.
Plants- plants are also another landform in the deciduous forest. They grow all of the forest. But it changes through every season. They have to do something different in each season that there is. Both, the trees and the plants, have to adapt to each season that there is. In the winter they both loose their leaves. In the summer and spring they grow their leaves back. In the fall they keep some leaves and they loose some leaves.
Shrubs- the shrubs are the second smallest landform that grow here. The most common in the deciduous forest is the rhododendron, huckleberries, azaleas, and maintain laurel.
Plants- the first plant we are going to discuss is the Red baneberry. It is a large bushy plant with large divided leaves. The branched, 1-3 ft leaves of this perennial bear two or three compound leaves, each thrice divided. The next plant is the butterly fly bush. The shrub grows up to 10 ft. in height and spreads impressively. It is purple and green. The next plant I am going to talk about is the Common Chokecherry. This plants colors are white and yellow. This plant can survive with less war as it is drought resistant. It produces delicious fruits which can be used to make jams, sauces, and jellies. This next plant is the double flowering plum. This plant is the Rosé Tree of China. It is a shrub that is double flowering and is known for its amazing pink flowers. This shrub can grow to 8 feet in height and grows from 6-8 feet in length. Last but not least is the tamirix. This plant can grow to be 16 feet. The flowers bloom for a long time and can be seen from January to mid- September.
Ecological concerns or issues
Human impact- us people have an impact on the forest. We help it sometimes and we don't help it sometimes. We can help buy going every once and a while to just help clean it up. We can help recycle. Make the forest cleaner. Cut down fewer trees. We also need trees to to help us breath. We don't help by not cleaning it up. Littering when when we are in the forest. We produce bad things even though some of us don't know how it is happening or how bad it is.
