Deciduous Ecosystem

Hey its me Emmanuel,Here are some facts from the Deciduous Forest

The temperate deciduous forest biome is characterized by its leaf-shedding trees and its seasons.
This biome experiences all four seasons - winter, spring, summer, and fall.
The temperate deciduous forest biome is located in the United States, Canada, Europe,China, and Japan. There are also some Parts of Russia that contain this biome.
The leaves of deciduous trees change color in the fall because the plant or tree stops producing chlorophyll which is what gives them their green color.
The temperate deciduous forest gets its name because the temperatures are temperate meaning they are not extreme.

Hello my name is Emmanuel from Ms,Occhpinti's class and here are the definitions!

Ecosystem:A biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.
Habitat:The natural home or enviorment of an animal, plant, or other organism.
Population:All the inhabitants of a particular town, area, or country.
Community:A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
Niche:A shallow recess, especially one in a wall to display a statue or other ornament.
Biome:A large occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat, e.g., forest or tundra.

Hello everyone, its me Allan from Ms.Occhipinti's class. Here are some definitions for ecosystem!

Ecosystem:A biological community of interacting organisms and their physical environment.
Habitat:The natural home or enviorment of an animal, plant, or other organism.
Population:All the inhabitants of a particular town, area, or country.
Community:A group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

Biome:A large occurring community of flora and fauna occupying a major habitat, e.g., forest or tundra.

Here are 5 facts about the Deciduous Forest

1)People named the Deciduous Forest that because every season the leafs change to the main color for that season for example,in summer the leafs turn into a bright green color.
2)The Deciduous Forest experiences all for seasons
3)This ecosystem is located in the USA,Canada,Europe,Japan, and China.They can also be found in parts of Russia,
4)The biome/ecosystem is subdivided into 5 zones. The zones are based on the height of the trees.
5)The Deciduous Forest is temperate which means the temperatures aren't extreme.This is also another way this forest earned its name!

Here are some images on the Deciduous Forest Energy Pyramid, Food Web, and Food Chain (in order)

In the Deciduous Forest Energy Pyramid when the primary consumers eat the producers they get 10% of energy.When the
Secondary Consumers eat the Primary Consumers they get 1% of energy which is 10x less energy than the Primary Consumers.
When the Tertiary Consumers eats a Secondary Consumer they get 0.1% of energy. They have to eat a lot!

As you can see here this is a Food Web. When the arrow is pointing to an animal that means that animal eats
the other animal on the opisite end of the arrow. For example the Mice eats the grass, and so on.

This is the Food Chain. Its less complicated than the Food Web.Like I said when the arrow is pointing to an animal that means that animal eats
the other animal on the opisite end of the arrow!

Hi my name is Jorge and im posting facts about the Deciduous Forest.

1.Wolves and Bears are at the top of the food chain/web.

2.Deciduous Forest gets its name by how it goes with the season.

3.Deciduous Forest can be found in the us.

4.Wolves hunt in packs.

5.Worms are Decomposers

Hello deciduous forest team my name is keilani and my ECOSYSTEM is the Deciduous Forest and you will find useful information here about the deciduous forest such as were , what , and animals and plants that come from the deciduous forest.

What does deciduous mean?

The word Deciduous means falling off or out at a certin season.
But the word deciduous to me means for somthing to fall off like leaves or even branches. So I think or know now that that explains why thry know call it the deciduous forest and that is why there are so many deciduous forests. Thats becacuse leaves from trees at theese places the leaves fall off every year.

Where is the diciduous forest?

The deciduous forest can be located in Aisa,Eroupe, Australia,Japan, and even in the south and north America.

Hello my name is Shaniya and my ecosystem is The Deciduous Forest.Here is some info I found:

Deciduous forests are closer to the equator than the coniferous forests of the tiaga, and so they have a longer growing season. This gives the plants more time to produce food, and the forest yields about 6000 Kilocalories per square meter per year for animals to eat. These primary producers form the first trophic level.
The trees in the deciduous forest shed their leaves in winter. This prevents their branches from being broken by the weight of the snow, but also means that they have to grow leaves anew each spring. The trees and shrubs produce flowers, seeds, and fruits, such as wild cherries and persimmons. Many of the shrubs beneath the trees also produce fruit, such as huckleberries, blackberries, and thimbleberries. below the shrubs there are wild flowers, clumps of grasses, and ferns.
Herbivores eat the leaves and fruits of the forest. Some of the animals that live in coniferous forests also live here. Squirrels, small rodents, and deer find food in the deciduous forest, and other plant eaters, including many birds and insects, are also members of the community of primary consumers. These animals are on the second trophic level. These animals can use the 6000 Kilocalories per square meters per year produced by the plants, but the most of this energy is used up in the processes of living, such as breathing, circulating the blood, growth, and reproduction. Only about one tenth of the energy is stored in the bodies of the herbivores, so animals eating these herbivores can only get 600 Kilocalories per square meters per year from their bodies.
The small carnivores, the secondary consumers, form the third trophic level. Many of these animals, such as woodpeckers and skunks, eat insects, while others, such as racoons, foxes, and snakes, eat the small rodents and frogs. The small carnivores have 600 kilocalories per square kilometer per year to eat, but, again, nine tenths of these Kilocalories are used up in keeping the animals alive. The bodies of the secondary consumers contain only 60 Kilocalories per square meter per year.
This biome can support a fourth trophic level. Large carnivores, such as bears and cougars, form a layer of tertiary consumers. These animals can eat the larger herbivores, such as deer, as well as anything else in the biome. However, only 60 Kilocalories per square meter are passed up to them from the lower levels, so they have to be able to cover a lot of ground to be able to find enough food to stay alive. Because these animals are at the top of the food chain, they are called top predators.
No animals prey on the top predators. This is partly because these animals are so big, strong, and fierce, and partly because the nourishment in their flesh represents only one tenth of the 60 Kilocalories per Kilometer per year that they capture. This is only 6 kilocalories per square Kilometer per year!

Here is a diagram that shows the energy numbers:

hello my name is jance from ms.nieto's class and I am showing you the deciduous forest food chain

hello my name is bryan crisostomo and my teamates are ,louis,tyshawn.

we are working on the deciduous forest. our animal is the salamander. some facts about the salamander are

The spotted salamander is about 6–7.5 inches (15–19 cm) long. The spotted salamander's main color is black, but can sometimes be a blueish black, dark grey, or even dark brown. There are two rows of yellowish orange spots that run from the top of the head (near the eyes) to the tip of the tail. These rows are uneven. Interestingly, the spotted salamander's spots near the top of the head are more orange, while the spots on the rest of its body are more yellow. The underside of the spotted salamander is slate gray and pink

The spotted salamander usually makes its home around hardwood forest areas. They must have a pond as that is the only place they can lay eggs.during the winter salamanders hibernate underneath ground.

Their defenses from predators include hiding in leaf litter or logs, and a poison, which is not harmful to humans.

the spotted salamanders diet includes crickets, worms, insects, spiders, slugs, and millipedes.

Spotted salamanders have been known to live up to 32 years.spotted salamander favor cool temperature.

step1-keep the salamander in cool temperatures

step2-make sure the tank has space for the salamander to move around

step3-feed the salamander 3 times a day

step4-always make sure the salamander feels at home

step5-enjoy
