3 Describe the abiotic factors of your ecosystem  80 inches (200 cm) of rain a year  The air is moist  The rainforest is very humid  Temperatures range from 64 degrees F to 95 degrees F  The rainforest gets about 12 hours of sunlight every day

4 Producer: Bromeliad. How does your producer rely on other organisms in the Tropical Rainforest to survive?  The producer is the bromeliad  Gets nutrients from tadpole droppings  Nutrients from leftover (not eaten) poison dart frogs eggs

5 How do other organisms of your ecosystem rely on your producer to survive?  Tree frog, snails, tiny crabs live inside the bromeliad  The bromeliad is pollinated by nectar gathering birds  Bird monkey and bat droppings is full of fruit seeds and plant more bromeliads  Tree frogs lay their eggs in pools of water in the bromeliad

6 How do humans affect your ecosystem?  People eat the bromeliad  People are working hard to prevent tropical rainforest from extinction  Poisoning animals and plants  Burning plants and trees

7 Choose one biotic or abiotic factor in your ecosystem & describe how a change in one of these could your ecosystem.  Cut down all the Sapodilla trees  There would be no gum in the world because the bark is called “chicle” which makes gum chewy.  The Sapodilla tree is also a home to many small animals

8 Other interesting facts  Rarely in some Tropical Rainforests you can find pink dolphins  The Tropical Rainforest holds the record for the biggest flower, it’s in southeast Asia, measures three feet across and smells like rotting meat  The Amazon rain forest has been called the lungs of our planet because it produces about 20 percent of the worlds’ oxygen
