Acid rain caused by industrial and vehicle emissions damages the leaves of trees, and causes them to produce smaller and fewer seeds. It also reduces the trees' resistance to disease, pests, and frost. Clear cutting of forests is also a threat to this biome. Trees are cut for timber and land cleared for agriculture.

How does climate change affect the temperate deciduous forest?

Due to the higher temperatures, deciduous forests in some areas are receiving more rainfall than they used to and others are receiving less. On the whole, climate change is causing dry regions to get drier and wet areas to turn wetter.

How do plants adapt in the temperate deciduous forest?

Plant Adaptations in the Deciduous Forest Biome Trees have thick bark to protect them in the cold winters. Deciduous trees drop their leaves prior to the winter which lets them store water/moisture and survive the cold winter. When the leaves are dropped, the trees and plants seal the open area to retain moisture.

Do roses grow in the forest?
