CYPRESS STRANDS AND CYPRESS DOMES

True/False

Food for thought

Cypress domes and strands can create their own micro-climates. The shade of the tree canopy helps to keep the air a few degrees cooler than open prairies, while also trapping moisture. This helps to create a habitat that tends to be a bit cooler and more humid year round.

How do you think this cooler, more humid micro-climate makes for an ideal habitat for certain species of plants and animals throughout the year? Give some examples.
