Deciduous Forest Biome

Deciduous Forest

Deciduous forests exist in areas with a moderate amount of precipitation and where temperatures are also generally moderate. These ecosystems typically have long warm summers, and short cool winters. The most noticeable feature is the abundance of deciduous trees. A deciduous tree is a tree that loses all its leaves in autumn.

Many other plants and animals live in these ecosystems as well, including birds, deer, and insects.
