My Glossary A biotic Factor A nonliving condition or thing; influences or affects an ecosystem and the organisms in it Biotic Factor A living thing as an animal or plant that influences or affects an economic system Organism A form of life composed of mutually interdependent parts that maintain various viral processes Population Total number of persons inhabiting a country, city Community a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality, share government, and often have a common cultural and historical heritage. Herbivore Animal that gets its energy from plants and only plants CarnivoreAn animal that eats flesh Omnivore A kind of animal that meats plants and meat Decomposer an organism, usually a bacterium or fungus, that breaks down the cells of dead plants and animals into simpler substances. Producer An autotrophic organism Consumer an organism, usually an animal, that feeds on plants or other animals Food Chain a series of organisms interrelated in their feeding habits, the smallest being fed upon by a larger one Food Web a series of organisms related by predator-prey and consumer-resource interactions
Tropical Rainforest The tropical rainforest is earth’s most complex biome in terms of both structure and species diversity. It occurs under optimal growing conditions: abundant precipitation and year round warmth. There is no annual rhythm to the forest; rather each species has evolved its own flowering and fruiting seasons. (https://php.radford.edu/~swo odwar/biomes/?page_id=100) Monthly temperatures are above 64degrees Fahrenheit with precipitation of 100 inches a year.
CLIMATE! Tropical Rainforest are near the equator so they are generally hot. The Tropical Rainforest is has an average temperature of 77 degrees, temperature will not reach lower than 64 degrees Fahrenheit and will not go over 94 degrees.
Plants Bamboo Banana Plants Pineapples Coconuts The trees grow to about 60 to 150 feet. The canopy is so thick it creates somewhat of an umbrella on the ground shading out some of the sunlight. Even without the sunlight the massive amount of rain help the growth of plant life.
Animals Jaguars Tarantulas Parrots Toucans Gorillas They have adapted to living in this environment and with the excessive amounts of water isn't an issue.
Tropical Rainforest are located around the band of the equator. There are Rainforest in the South and Central America, Africa, Oceania, and Asia.
Humans and The Tropical Rainforest Deforestation of tropical rainforests has a global impact through species extinction, the loss of important ecosystem services and renewable resources, and the reduction of carbon sinks. Five Basic Steps to Saving Rainforests "TREES" is a concept originally devised for an elementary school audience but serves well as set of principles for saving rainforests and, on a broader scale, ecosystems around the world. Teach others about the importance of the environment and how they can help save rainforests. Restore damaged ecosystems by planting trees on land where forests have been cut down. Encourage people to live in a way that doesn't hurt the environment. Establish parks to protect rainforests and wildlife. Support companies that operate in ways that minimize damage to the environment.
My Biome This Biome is my favorite it is full of beautiful plants, even though the animals are dangerous the Tropical Rainforest is an overall beautiful place. The sight is breathtaking and I would love to see it in person.
