Woodland Biome

WOODLAND BIOME - The woodland biome is representative of native forests. It consists of a tree canopy that shades the forest floor and a ground layer consisting of smaller woody and vegetative plants. You are likely to encounter plants such as native sedges and ferns, along with earlier flowering perennials and bulbs that take advantage of the light early in the season before the overstory canopy fills in. The shade that follows through the hotter part of the season provides a great reprieve from the sun for both humans and the animals that inhabit the neighboring space.
