Restoration of Deciduous Forests | Learn Science at Scitable

Restoration of Deciduous Forests | Learn Science at Scitable | Temperate Forests APES | Scoop.it
Deciduous forests have been threatened by logging and agricultural expansion, but there are ways to restore them to their original condition, either actively or passively.
Hsj3847's insight:

Currency, Accurate, Authority, Purpose: This case study is important because Liette Vassuer in nature education observed and researched specifically on different types of temperate forests and the resoration of them. This was done a year ago, in 2012 which passes the currency test. The purpose was to show the forests and the need to restore them, and it helps us understand a little more on temperate forests and the importance of them .

Hsj3847's insight:

Accurate and Authority: Although written in 2006, the information in this article is very helpful because it talks specifically about the environment in temperate forests and how animals are affected. This is important and accurate. The authors who wrote this information also are trustworthy which makes the information even better and trustworthy to use.

Biomes of the World :: Forests | Temperate Forests APES | Scoop.it
The forest biome takes up one third of the Earth's surface and is home to millions of plant and animal species. 3 types of forests: rainforests, temperate or deciduous forests and boreal or taiga forests.

Environmental Science : Biomes - Deciduous Forests

Manuel S. Enverga University Environmental Science Year II Bachelor in Science Major in Mass Communication - Cinematography. Made by John Ondra.
Hsj3847's insight:

Accurate, Purpose, Authority, Current: This video matches and passes a lot of the CRAAP tests. It is very current, published on January 7, 2013. The information found in the video is very accurate, showing the seasons and how the temperate forests actually changes throughout the year. Authority is there because of who its by, a Bachelor in Science Major, which makes the information more trustworthy. It's purpose is to teach us specifically aout the temperate forest biomes in environmental science - which fits for us and our purpose.

Climate change's effects on temperate rain forests surprisingly complex

Climate change's effects on temperate rain forests surprisingly complex | Temperate Forests APES | Scoop.it
Longer, warmer growing seasons associated with a changing climate are altering growing conditions in temperate rain forests, but not all plant species will be negatively affected, according to new research.

Hsj3847's insight:

Accurate and Authority: This fits in these two categories because it is from Science Daily, which is a site by scientists and they look over the information every single day. The information is also very accurate because of this. It talks about the climate change's effects and how it effects the temperate rainforests, more specifically.
