Endangered Giant Pandas
Mostly this species is found in China's deciduous forests. Bamboo is limited to certain areas which results in the Panda species being limited too. During the Ice Ages 12,000 years ago when climates were cooler, Giant Pandas had a far larger distribution but now they are extremely endangered. Climate change, population, and limited resources are the parts of HIPPCO that apply to this species.
The White-tailed deer are highly adaptable. They are grazers and the deciduous forest plants help satisfy their hunger.
Red-tailed hawks are also very adaptable. Most of their prey are located in deciduous forests. They stay high in the trees and use their eyesight to stay away from predators. This biome is perfect for them since survive in all different climates and altitudes.
The Snowy Owl also eats species that only live in Deciduous Forests. With the ability to also adapt anywhere, they stay quiet throughout the night hunting for their prey deep in the forest.
Lichens survive in some of the most barren and severe regions of the world. They survive through extreme cold and dry conditions. They actually require little rainfall to survive which is why they adapt in Deciduous Forests.
Wildflowers can be found blooming before the trees have leafed out in Deciduous Forests. They also adapt highly to conditions and are one of the most popular flowers found in the forests
Maple trees can tolerate a wide range of habitat conditions and uses many different types of resources in Deciduous Forests.
