Temperate Forest Biome

In the Temperate Forest, the Earthworm and the mushroom are two common decomposers found. The earthworm is found mostly in the soil of gradens and feeds on dead matter. It's size can range from 9-30 cm. The mushroom is a type of fungus that can grow on live or decaying trees, or soil that has decaying plant matter.

Introduction

Temperate Forest

Food Web

The temperate forest, also known as the deciduous forest is where we live today. It includes all four seasons and is located between the polar and tropic regions. The climate is often moderate and between 30 to 60 inches of precipitation is recieved each year.

Producers

Consumer

Recommendations such as using cloth towels instead of paper, buying recycled products, using the front and back of a paper before throwing it away, and simply educating yourselves in the biome and what's going on can make a huge difference in protecting and caring for the biome.

The raccoon is a secondary consumer in the temperate forest. It lives in wooded areas near water and it adapts by also living in cities and making caves their homes. Raccoons have gray to brown fur, have a black mask around their eyes, a bushy tail and black paws with 5 toes. The rattlesnake is also a secondary consumer and adapts to the cold weather by digging out burrows in the ground. Their habitat is mostly grasslands, meadows or praries. Their lifespan is usually 20-30 years in captivity, and in the wild the lifespan is less because of disease, hunters, and predators. Lastly, the Northern Cardinal is a primary consumer in the temperate forest. When its cold, the birds migrate to a warmer place and find a new home until they return in the spring time. The adult male is black with a red beak, and the female is buff-brown with a red crest, wings, and an orange beak. They live in shrubby areas(mostly backyards) and theire average lifespan is 15 years. Their predators are cats, squirrels, owls, etc.; they are not endangered and have been more commonly spotted over the past 200 years.

The american beech tree adapts to its surroundings because it has a wide shallow root system that adapts well to its soil locations.

The birch tree adapts to cold climates and the leaves trun from green to yellow when the seasons change. On the other hand, because the maple tree doesn't get large amounts of sunlight in her life, the tree drops its leaves that "helicopter" to the soil when the climate gets cold to plant their seeds.

Elements that have hurt the temperate forest would consist of deforestation to create new buildings, and air pollution caused by man-made materials and natural events in the ecosystem such as smoke from forest fires, and volcanic eruptions. By clearing lands for farming, it is destroying the trees, and the homes to many animals.
