Net Primary Productivity
Temperate Deciduous Forests are located between 40° and 60° north and south of the equator. They are known to have warm summers with trees with leaves and cool winters with trees that have lost their leaves. The Temperate Deciduous Forest has the fourth highest net primary productivity of kilocalories per square meter per year , fourth most kilocalorie per square meter per day, it has more than 120 days of forest free nights, it is considered a Temperate Forest, they take up 22% of the earth's surface.
The soil quality of Temperate Deciduous Forests is very rich and nutritious because during the winter the trees leaves fall and then decompose making very nutritious soil.
