Introduction:

Do you like the astonishing colors of the changing season’s leaves?! Do you need a break from life and all of its technology?! If you answered yes to either of those, the deciduous forest is the right place for you! Broad deciduous trees cover a vast part of this land providing nice shade for you in the hot summer sun (Overview). You'll be able to see the color of the leaves change from a vibrantgreen, to yellow then to a fiery red. The land here is very suitable for farming which can be a very fun adventure for you and your children (Overview). This is the place to be, it is fun and adventurous, for the whole family or just a couple of friends. Come visit the amazing deciduous forest, you will make memories you will never forget.

Climate & Terrain:

In the deciduous forest the climate is know for varying. In the spring plants grow and the days are longer. At this time animals come out of their homes to collect food. I recommend you to bring a camera to take pictures of all the beautiful animals; also you should bring light layers of clothing since it gets warmer by the day. There is many insects, especially mosquitoes so bring repellent. Unless you like [[#|bug bites]], you will regret not bringing it. The sun comes out during the summer making it extremely hot. Bring your swim suit because there are many lakes and rivers to explore, you don't want to miss out! Remember to bring lots of water to stay hydrated. At this time many fascinating animals walk around looking for food and water, if they are not dangerous you may be able to go near them or even pet them. During the fall, the tree leaves change color and eventually fall as winter nears. Leaves from the trees fall of because the trees take the nutrients back from the leaves and replace it with waste, causing them to eventually fall off. The temperature also decreases and daylight shortens. Since it gets colder I recommend bringing a coat and an umbrella since it rains at this time too. Come and watch how the animals prepare for winter and discover new things. Finally In winter, it gets very cold so unless you like the cold, I advise you to not come out. If you are an extreme skier you are going to love it because there is a lot of snow here. You won’t be able to see many animals since they have move to the south for warmer climates.

Average Temperature: The temperature ranges down from 20 [[#|degrees]] C down to freezing.


Dysart Woods, Ohio

The Dysart Woods is a 50-acre old-growth oak deciduous forest in southern Ohio. If you like to hike, this is the right place for you! There is an area that is characteristically hilly with [[#|local]] relief exceeding 200 feet! If you're a person who enjoys summer, going during the summer is recommended because it so so alive! If you're not a summer person and you enjoy cold winters, there is a season for you too! Even though there will be snow and the temperature during the winter may sometimes be at or slightly above freezing, you can pack a couple of blankets, snow boots and a good winter jacket, you will still have a blast!

Highlighted Species: Eastern Chipmunk

The eastern chipmunk is an extremely cool animal. Most of it's food are nuts and seeds that they get from trees. It stores large amounts of food in their burrows called caches (Stephen). They hibernate in the fall and eat from their cache. They communicate with each other using chatter. It is not against climbing trees which could be a amazing attribute for avoiding predators. It gets food for itself and provides food for certain animals.It has great speed, making it hard to catch. It predators include hawks, owls, Red Fox, Raccoon's and house cats. They help fungi by spreading seeds and spores (Stephen). Without them it fungi would not be able to be helped.

The Dysart forest of Ohio is very peaceful place. there is a complete working ecosystem that can be entered by humans. There is first the Bactria. then the plants which are eaten by the the eastern chipmunk.then there are the final consumers in the fox it doesn't have many
predators but has some. the Ohio dysart woods is a friendly are where you can walk through by yourself and see the views of the forest or with your family.

Deer: Another animal in the deciduous forest is the deer. It is a factor to the ecosystem of the deciduous forest. It's majority of food it eats are plants, and leaves off of trees. They important role is they are apart of the food chain and are eaten by a species like a cougar for example which would primarily eat meat.The deer are not relatively large and they are quick, they are herbivores and are found in more grassy areas.




Brown bears are omnivorous. Their food varies with the seasons and also by where they live.

They eat grasses, roots, berries, nuts, insects and grubs, birds and animals. Bears catch and eat fish in lakes, rivers and the sea. If they find dead animals, called carrion, they eat that too. They are found in deciduous forests. (Sydenham, S. & Thomas)
