Characteristics:1)The forests are found in areas where warm, moist summers alternate with mild winters.

2)The average annual temperature in a deciduous forest is 50° F. The average rainfall is 30 to 60 inches a year.

4)During the fall, trees change color and then lose their leaves. This is to prepare for the winter season. Because it gets so cold, the trees have adapted to the winter by going into a period of sleep. They also have thick bark to protect them from the cold weather. Trees flower and grow during the spring and summer growing season.
