Temperate Deciduous Forest East russia

The climate of this temperate deciduous forest.

The temperature of this climate ranges from 36 degrees fahrenheit to 75 degrees fahrenheit . The rainfall per year ranges from 40 inches to 70 inches. Temperate Deciduous Forests have 4 seasons. (Spring(wet), Summer(hot and dry), Fall(moderate), Winter(cold))

The Net Primary Productivity

The Temperate Deciduous Forest Biome is the 4th most productive biome based off of kilocalories per square meter per year. It is also the fourth most productive biome based off of kilocalories per square meter per day. This biome has a growing season greater than 120 days out of the year. On average there are 30-60 inches of rainfall per year, and this biome covers 22% of the Earth's land surface.

Soil Quality

The soil of temperate deciduous forests is usually very rich. This is because as the leaves decompose the soil takes in the nutrients in those leaves. This biome has a very long growing season. (5-6 months) Many temperate deciduous forests have been converted into agricultural regions.

Invasive and Endangered Species

The red wolves are endangered in temperate deciduous forests. They are found in the Eastern United States and Eastern Russia. This endangerment was on accident. Red wolves play an important role in the temperate deciduous ecosystem. They prey on nuisance animals, like rabbits, deer and small rodents. Deer and rabbit numbers are declining so the red wolves are having harder times finding food which causes them to starve and die out. They are also dying out in the United States due to habitat loss and deforestation.

The yellow burrhead is an invasive plant species from Europe. The invasion of this species was intentional. Russian farmers thought that these plants were very pretty and wanted to add some pretty colors to their forests so they planted a lot of them.

An adaption that allows the Siberian Tiger to live in the temperate deciduous forests of East Russia is it has a thick layer of fur which allows it to survive the harsh winters of this biome.

An adaption that the Eurasian Lynx has that helps it survive in the temperate deciduous biome is it has really good hearing. This helps it hunt at night and this really good hearing helps it protect itself from predators.

An adaptation that the Asiatic Black Bears is it has a thick coat of fur to give it warmth during the harsh winters of this biome. It also has long claws which helps it catch prey.

Oak trees have very deep roots which helps them resist falling over by wind and it helps them find water easier

An adaptation that birch trees have is the small, triangular, toothed leaves have minimal surface area, reducing water loss in drying winds while still taking advantage of the intense summer sunlight for photosynthesis.

An adaption of lichen that allows them to live in the temperate deciduous forests of East Russia is their tiny cellular structure is able to withstand extended periods of freezing.
