Energy Pyramid 10% Energy is transferred, 90% of transferred energy is used for heat.

Symbiotic Relationships Mutualism – Ex. A Fungus provides the plant with an increased ability to absorb nutrients and water and often offers disease resistance to the plant. Commensalism – Ex. Moss or Algae live on the bark of a tree. The tree is unaffected by this and the moss and algae have a place to live. Parasitism – Ex. Beech Drops in Ohio, they have no chlorophyl and live entirely on the sap of the beech tree.

Environmental Damage A huge problem in the Temperate forest is deforestation. Deforestation is the loss of forests due to over cutting of trees. One consequence of deforestation is soil erosion, which results in the loss of protective soil cover.
