Not only are temperate hardwood forests homes to many animals, but they also have many impacts on us, as well as us having many impacts on them.

How do humans have a negative impact on this ecosystem?

People are always causing damage to many forests. But Florida's temperate hardwood forests are being especially damaged. Companies and/or industries are causing disturbances to the plants and the animals that are native to this land. They are cutting down trees for residential/commercial development. This is causing many plants to die as well as animals not having homes.
