Temperate Deciduous and Temperate Coniferous Forests

Tropical rainforests:
- high rainfall
- location: nearer to the equator (23.5 degrees North and South)

Temperate forests:
- not so hot all year round
- 4 seasons
- location: northern hemisphere, higher latitudes (60-70 degrees North and South)
- less rainfall

Temperate Deciduous Forests
- Distribution: found widely in Japan, China, Europe, North America, New Zealand
- Characteristics:
1. Deciduous leaves- very broad, has a larger surface are to get more sunlight in summer and spring, leaves fall off in autumn and winter to minimise water loss due to transpiration
2. Layers- canopy is thick in summer, shrubs and small trees, forest floor grows rapidly in spring and summer and disappears in autumn and winter
3. colour changes- chlorophyll production stops
4. not very dense
5. 3 or 4 varieties in an area

Temperate Coniferous forests
- Distribution: Similar to temperate deciduoud forests but in the northern parts and mountainous area
1. Coniferous= cone shaped
2. Supple/soft branches
3. Evergreen, do not drop their leaves
4. Small, needle-like leaves. Because there is a smaller surface area, less water is lost and therefore there is no need to drop leaves.
5. One layer, little undergrowth
6. Usually homogenous (1 type) in variety within an area

I feel so blessed and fulfilled. I've been reluctant in applying for a loan i heard about online because everything seems too good to be true, but i was convinced & shocked when my friend at my place of work got a loan from Progresive Loan INC. & we both confirmed it and i also went ahead to apply, today am a proud owner of my company and making money for my family and a happy mom. Well i'm Annie Joe by name from Pauls Valley, Oklahoma. As a single mom with three kids it was hard to get a job that could take care of me and my kids and I had so much bills to pay and to make it worst I had bad credit so i couldn't obtain a loan from any bank. I had an ideal to start a business as an hair stylist but had no capital to start, Tried all type of banks but didn't work out until I was referred by my co-worker to a godsent lender advertising to give a loan at 2% interest rate. I sent them a mail using their official email address ( and I got a reply immediately and my loan was approved, and I was directed to the Bank site where I withdrawed my loan directly to my account. To cut the story short am proud of my hair stylist company and promise to testify to the world how my life was transformed.. If you are in need of any kind of loan, i advise you contact Progresive Loan INC and be financially lifted Email: OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565
