WHAT'S THE TEMPERATE
DECIDUOUS FOREST LIKE?
One of the most interesting features of the temperate deciduous forest is its four changing seasons. And as the seasons change, so do the colors of the leaves of the deciduous trees.
The average rainfall here in the forest is 30 to 60 inches a year.
During the winter months water is generally not available to keep the leaves of some plants alive. Therefore, the leaves of some plants fall off and grow back in the spring. Those plants, like evergreens, that keep their leaves during the winter have special adaptations to stay alive. You can learn more about these adaptations in the taiga biome.
