Temperate Rainforest

Temperate Rainforest are coniferous or broadleaf forests that occur in the temperate zone and recieve high rainfall, they are found along some coasts in temperate zones. The largest temperate rainforests are found on the Pacific coast of North America. The temperate rainforest have two distinct seasons. One is long and wet, and the other is a short, dry and foggy summer.

2.Salmonberry

3.Dogwoods

1.Lady Fern

(1)-Often abundent in damp shady woodland, swamps, or moist woods-Animals that depend on this plant are the Grizzly bear, and elks.-Native American also depend on this plant, they have many uses for it.Ex: They use this plant to make tea to help breast pain mothers got caused by childbirth.-This plant is not endangered but it is threatened in some areas like New York and Florida.

(2)- They provide partial shade for some organisims-mostly found in wet moistered areas-Animals that depend on this plant are hummingbirds, many other birds, fox, and chipmunks.-The salmonberry is not endangered but it is threatened.

(3)-grows best on rich, well-drained soils on middle and lower slopes.-The animals that depend on the plants fruit are the gray squirrels, fox squirrels, cardinal, mocking bird, etc.-The white tailed deer depends on the animals leaves, and twigs.

The berries were eaten plain by the native americans or with some salmon and eggs.-This plant is threatened, acid rain may be spreading deadly fungus that is attacking dogwood trees in various areas in the northeast.

(1)Elk

(1)-Stomach has 4 parts("super stomach"). The elk stores about 15 pounds of food.-Appearance: Antlers, red deer.Male:300-500kgFemale:220-240kgNewborn:15-16kg-habitat:like being around herbaceous plants,forest openings, glades and woodland areas.-Life Span: 14-26 years-Not threatened

(2)Adaptations: They have good eyesight to see anything, and they blend in with the trees and leaves.Appearance: Olive upper parts with white bellies and bright yellow throats and breasts.Size:Total length(6.7 to 7.5 in)wing span(9.1 to 10.6 in)Habitat:scrubby areas and woodland edgesThreats: Endangered; disappearing habitats,human occupations.Life Span: 5-8 years

(2)Yellow-breasted chat

(3)Box Turtle

(3)Adaptations:Bony shell provides protection against predators and injury. Thick scales on the head and limbs protect against injury. Sharp beak to slice vegetationAppearance: it has a domed shell, hinged at the bottom;yellow brown shell marksSize: 4.5 - 7 inchesHabitat: Mesic woodlandsThreats: low reproductive output, habitat loss, removal from wildlifeLife span: 50 years

(1)Banana Slug

(2)Shelf Fungus

(1) Appearance'Size: Bright yellow, sometimes greenish,tan,brownish,white,and some may have black spots. 25 cm or 9.8 inches longHabitat:They have small teeth that are on it's tongue which they use as a file so it can eat its food. They have 2 pairs of tentacles to sense their envoirnment. They process leaves, anial droppings, moss, and dead plant material, and then recycle them into soil.

(2)Appearance'Size: Has a woody, leathery, or fleshy texture. May reach up to 40 cm (16 inch in diameter). Their pores range in size. Habitat: They produce spores above the ground. They can severly damage lumber and timber.

Natural leaching of soil elements over time lead to the acidification of the soil. Primary source of acidity comes from the acid precipitation.

The Future of this Biome

According to the WWF Global they've worked with goverments,timber and paper companies, retailers and consumers to save habitats from destruction by making sure they're managed sustainably.

I predict that if us humans dont acknowledge or pay attention to the temperate forest and other biomes then we could possible cause damge to ourself because we use a lot of the worlds resources. We take but we dont give. We should be more informed on how to take better care of our enviorment.
