1 By Matt Francis and Justin Franklin

2 Biotic-plants(algae, seaweed), animals(fish crabs, coral, plankton) Abiotic- sand and water Climate-Warm ocean water

3 Biotic-plants (ferns, trees, flowers, vines), Animals(birds, snakes, insects, monkeys) Abiotic-Soil and Rocks. Climate-warm and humid

4 The limiting factors are pollution, disease, overfishing, dynamite and cyanide fishing, and sedimentation.

5 The limiting factors of a rainforest are deforestation, darkness on the forest floor, human activity, natural disasters, and tropical storms.

6  Variations, tolerances, and adaptations  There are 30 variations of clownfish such as cinnamon and striped maroon clownfish.  Tolerances- a clownfish needs warm salty water, algae, zoo plankton and isopods to survive.  Adaptations- a clownfish has a coating of slime around its body to keep it safe from anemone stings. The male can switch to female if the female dies.

8  Variations, tolerances, and adaptations  There are 850 variations of crab such as the Japanese Spider Crab and the Pea Crab.  Tolerances – a crab needs saltwater, plankton, sea worms and the ability to scavenge.  Adaptations – crabs have a hard exoskeleton to protect themselves from predators. Antenna that can sense vibrations, and pinchers for defense and getting food.

10  Variations, tolerances and adaptations  There are many types of coral such as blue coral, brain coral, tube coral, and table coral.  Tolerances – coral needs warm salty water, firm sand, and phytoplankton to survive.  Adaptations – certain toxins in soft coral make it unappetizing for predators. Some types of coral produce toxins that eliminate predators and increase their living space.

12  Variations, tolerances, and Adaptations  There are 7 variations of Spider Monkeys such as the Black-Faced Spider Monkey and the Red-Faced Spider Monkey.  Tolerances- a Spider Monkey needs a warm climate, fruit, and trees to survive.  Adaptations – Spider Monkeys have powerful tails to grip the trees. They also have extremely long limbs to swing from branch to branch.

13

14  Variations, tolerances, and adaptations  There are 28 variations of Boa constrictors such as the Imperator and the Emerald Tree Boa.  Tolerances – a warm climate and a variety of small animals to eat.  Adaptations – eat sensitive scales to locate prey and sensors on their tongue to detect odors.

15

16  Variations, tolerances, and adaptations  There are 6 variations of sloths such as the Brown-Throated 3-Toed Sloth and the Pigmy 3- Toed Sloth.  Tolerances – warm climate, trees, foliage.  Adaptations – long curved claws to latch on to tree branches, and a complex stomach to digest foliage.

17

18  Clownfish have a symbiotic relationship with sea anemones. They benefit form each other’s company for food and protection. (mutualism)  Decatur Crabs snip pieces of sponges and imbed them in their shells. (commensalism)  Cleaner Shrimp clean out fish mouth. The fish gets a clean mouth and the shrimp gets and easy meal. ( mutualism)

19

20  Agouti opens the Brazil nut tree’s nuts and eats some of them, but scatters the rest of the seeds. (mutualism)  A Boa Constrictor hunting a bat is predation.  Two monkeys fighting over a mate is competition.
