The terrain and soil is crucial to the environment that grows upon it
The composition of the soil affects the entire ecosystem. The soil in Bee Crossing is acidic and rich in humus (decomposed organic matter) which helps special plants like Skunk Cabbage and Jack-in-the-pulpit grow. The area is also considered a marshland. Marshlands are characterized by the plant life and how wet the soil stays year round. The soil type has a huge impact on what plants are able to grow. If the soil was less acidic, different plants would grow which would lead to different animals to inhabit the area. If the Sahara could grow a rainforest, there’d be no camels!
