Temperate Hardwood Forest
By : Gladys & Debbie
-Animals in the forest have to get use to the seasons changing , but some animals take and hibernate for the winter or other seasons .
- The trees change color in the fall and the leaves fall off in the autumn and in the spring they grow back , In the winter because the grounds are frozen it make it hard for the trees to absorb water
-Temperate deciduous forests can be found in the eastern part of the United States and Canada, most of Europe and parts of China and Japan.
Water - Water is nonliving, and plants and animals rely on it for survival.
Temperature - Warm spring months ease the plants and animals back to life, encouraging animal reproduction with the development of new leaves and plants.
Sunlight - All plants need sunlight to survive, and it is this basic building block of life that has formed much of the structure of the deciduous forest.
- -30°C to 30°C, yearly average is 10°C, hot summers, cold winters
- Millions of acres of forest have suffered from the effects of acid rain.
-Global warming has definite debilitous effects on the Earth's Deciduous forests.
Because of people cutting down trees for paper ,houses ,ships , and furniture and the forest have gotten smaller . And farmers cut down trees for more farming space its a benefit for them but not for the forest , they will have amazing crops and everything but the forest will never grow back
