A temperate deciduous forest, as seen in New York State has organisms that are adapted to four seasons including  a cold winter, and moderate amounts of annual rainfall. Plants include deciduous trees such as beech, maple, and oak. These trees are broad leaved and they are shed each autumn. This is an adaptation to survive during winter when there is little available water. There are also coniferous trees such as pines and other evergreens and these retain their needles all year long. Fauna include: deer, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, foxes, beavers, songbirds, hawks, eagles, owls, bears. All of these organisms interact with the flora in a wide variety of food webs.
