A temperate seasonal forest biome, also known as a temperate deciduous forest, is a type of forest characterized by distinct seasons and trees that lose their leaves in the winter. These forests are found in temperate regions, such as North America, Europe, and parts of Asia, and are often dominated by hardwood trees such as oak, maple, and beech. The climate in temperate seasonal forests is moderate, with warm summers and cold winters. During the summer, the forest is lush and green, while in the winter, the trees lose their leaves and the forest takes on a more barren appearance. Wildlife in the temperate seasonal forest includes deer, squirrels, bears, and a variety of bird species. Human activities such as logging, urbanization, and agriculture have greatly impacted these forests, and many areas have been converted to other uses or are threatened by development. Despite this, temperate seasonal forests are important ecosystems and provide valuable resources and habitats for a wide variety of species.
Building the Atlas
We launched the Agrivoltaic Atlas on April 12, 2023 for the AgriVoltaics 2023 conference in Daegu, South Korea. We launch with the goal of demonstrating the idea and gathering interest from partners around the world to contribute. If you would like to contribute, contact email@example.com.
