    For the — white-tailed deer-hunting season, some areas only allow for the hunting of antlerless white-tailed deer. Population growth and poverty encourage poor farmers to clear new areas of rainforest, and their efforts are further exacerbated by government policies that permit landless peasants to establish legal title to land that they have cleared. Another factor for the strength in rutting activity is competition. The seeds take root, seedlings sprout, and the process begins again. Their large nests are built of sticks, leaves, and fur about feet 50 meters above the ground.

    For the station Republiek the length of the longest yearly dry period varied in the last 50 years between 0 and days fig. Atmospheric humidity and evaporation at various levels in mesophytic forest and in the open were discussed in the sections 1. Although it is admitted that some sort of phytosociological classification of the types of mesophytic forests found in Suriname is necessary, and also that it will be possible after much more data have been collected, the vegetational continuity will render any classification highly arbitrary III. Reproduction Most reptiles lay eggs. Primary succession Primary succession of some forests in North America usually begins on bare soil or sand where no plants grew before. The variation in these factors closely followed the rather irregular pattern of rainfall distribution.

    Algae Most algae are single-celled organisms, although quite a few are multicellular. Seeds that lie on the forest floor may remain dormant inactive for many years. Most animals live in the trees, especially high in the canopy. Trees take up some of this rain water through their roots and use it for their own life processes.

In a study of eastern hemlock forests, browsing by white-tailed deer caused populations of three exotic plants to rise faster than they do in the areas which are absent of deer.

These scrapes are used by bucks as a sort of "sign-post" by which bucks know which other bucks are in the area, and to let does know a buck is regularly passing through the area—for breeding purposes.

Goupia glabra; IV. At higher altitudes upper montane the cooler weather is favored by coniferous trees and myrtles. Komodo dragons can measure up to 10 feet 3 meters in length and weigh up to pounds kilograms. The very lowest layer consists of small plants, like mosses, that live atop the soil.
