Tropical Rainforest Carson D., Aaroon O., Cooper S.
Where is ecosystem located? South America North America Central America Australia Europe
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
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
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
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
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
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
