The temperate deciduous forests of north america have different zones: North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa
(Madagascar)(Bahamas). All of these trees lose their foliage at the end of the typical growing season. There are two types of deciduous forests: Temperate deciduous forests and Tropical and subtropical deciduous forest.
