Temperate deciduous forest

Green: Temperature Deciduous Forest


  • This biome is found on the eastern half on North America, the middle of Europe. Some major areas in Asia involve Russia, Japan and China. Also in South America are Chile and the Middle East Coast of Paraguay. Also located in New Zealand and the Southeastern part of Australia.


  • 5 Different Zones in the Deciduous Biome. They are The Tree Stratum Zone, The small tree and sapling Zone, The Shrub Zone and The Herb Zone.

  • This includes the different landscapes, it is mostly moist woody area with many zones.

Tree stratum zone
Tree Stratum Zone

  • This zone contains oak trees, beech, maple, chestnut, hickory, elm, basswood, linden, walnut and sweet gum trees. This zone represents the supplies that come off, in or a tree.

The small tree and sapling zone
The small tree and sapling Zone

  • The small tree and sapling zone contains young and short trees. This zone represents the trees in growth or baby trees.

The shrub zone
The Shrub Zone

  • The shrub zone contains rhododendrons, azaleas, mountain laurel, and huckleberries.

  • Rhododendrons means an evergreen or shrub.

  • Azaleas means a bunch of shrubs together.

  • This zone represents the different shrubs in this biome.

The herb zone
The Herb Zone

  • The herb zone contains short plants known as herbal plants. This zone represents the different herbs and small plants in this biome.

The ground zone
The Ground Zone

  • This zone contains lichen, club mosses and real mosses. This zone represents the mosses and lichen in this biome.

The impact
The Impact

  • Many humans cut down trees for wood and farmland. Without the trees the animals would not survive. Pollution and smog also effect the woods by changing the climate of soil. The best thing we can do is just leave it be. Also trees are being cut down to make farmland.

Description of the weather and climate
Description of the Weather and Climate

  • There is approximately 28 inches of rain per year.

  • There is no dry season

  • Precipitation falls threw out the year

  • Some of the forest are near the ocean and that impacts the weather by making it windy

  • Average temperature is 75 to 86 degrees

  • Wind blows from southern to the north which causes wind and rain.

  • It is very humid in the summer there is 60 to 80 percent humidity

  • In the summer it can get up to 90 degrees so it makes it very humid.

  • Temperature and humidity can change in a day, an hour, or in a few minutes.

  • It is hard to predict the weather because it can change very quickly.

  • Rain is distributed evenly through the year

  • Has more rainfall than any other biome, except the rainforest.

  • Yearly snowfall is about from 8 – 96 inches.

  • Plants grow

Significant weather patterns
Significant Weather Patterns

  • Has four different seasons – spring, summer, fall and winter

  • The seasons are equal in length.

  • Winter is the coldest season, with the shortest days.

  • In winter, artic air is blown down into the US where it makes it cold.

  • Spring the days get longer, and temperature is warmer.

  • Summer has the highest temperature that are often muggy,

  • Fall brings back lower temperatures and shorter days.

Impact on the environment
Impact on the Environment

  • Plants adjust to the four seasons through growth and activity

  • In the summer, trees have adapted to the low light and have big and green leaves.

  • In the fall, as days grow short the leaves turn color and fall off the trees.

  • For almost six months, trees and plants seem leafless and seem as if they are not alive.

  • In the forest, plants have to compete for light, space and nutrients.
