Transcript of Environmental Project - Southeast Asian Rainforest

Producers Strangler Fig Strangler Fig Produces a fig that is then eaten by animals like pigeons, parrots, hornbills, toucans, monkeys, and gibbons Gathers nutrients from the air, ground, and sunlight
Life span of 25 to 40 years
Native every major rainforest in the world Jambu Jambu Grows naturally from Southern India to Eastern Malaysia
Member of the myrtle family
Small tree/large shrub grows between 10 to 20 feet
Acquires nutrients from the soil, air, and sunlight
The seed themselves are known to be poisonous, along with the roots. This plant is avoided by most of the wild life because of its hidden poisonous attributes
Humans still are able to eat it since they have the knowledge of where the poison is located
The Silvery Gibbon and the Jambu Fruit Dove both rely on this plant for their main source of nutrients It consists a 3,100 mile long chain of about 20,000 islands strung between Asia and Australia
Has a constant wind blowing through
Has long periods of rain
The daily temperature range is 10° C to 30° C.
High average humidity
The latitude range of this climate is 16° S to 20° N latitude, and the longitude range is 95° to 130° E. Decomposers Carnivores Herbivores Silvery Gibbon Silvery Gibbon Spends most of its time foraging for fruit
“Sings” a song to establish territory (about 42 acres) Herbivore: The majority of its diet comes from eating fruits found in trees and from drinking water found in the forest floor rivers and streams
Spends most of its time up in the tree tops, being part of the Hylobate genus meaning “dweller in the trees” Jambu Fruit Dove Jambu Fruit Dove Inhabits the forests of the mangrove swamps and the rainforests one the islands of Sumatra and Western Java as well as in Thailand and Malaysia
Herbivore: Eats fruits found up in the trees and shrubs of the rainforest such as the Jambu fruit and figs Feeds from the trees throughout the day Bengal Tiger Bengal Tiger The total weight of a Bengal Tiger can reach up to 575 pounds and can get up to ten feet long and three feet tall
Resides in India, Bangladesh, China, Siberia, and Indonesia
Life span is about 15 years Carnivore: Eats boars, wild oxen, monkeys, and other animals.
Part of the endangered species due to poachers
Believed that their eyes, bones, and even whiskers are valuable to curing human ailments and giving people longer lives Wagler’s Pit Viper Wagler’s Pit Viper Found in many of the rainforests around southeast Asia
Prefers hot temperatures with humidity around 90%
Grows up to about 4 feet in length
Arboreal species: Lives up in the trees Carnivore: Uses its poison to kill both medium and small prey such as lizards, birds, and rodents
Has a highly potent venom from the moment it is born
Able to fend for itself from birth Asian Earth Worm Asian Earth Worm Decomposer: Breaks up detritus from the soil and from dead organic matter to obtain nutrients from them
Most earth worms can regenerate lost body parts
Earth Worms are hatched from cocoons Earth Worms are some of the most invasive species
Live underground
Many different species all around the world Bracket Fungi Bracket Fungi Decomposers: These fungi cling onto dying trees and fallen foliage and then break them down into usable nutrients
Most of the Fungi is found in small strands that go deep into the organic material that they are decomposing Brings a lot of bugs to it from the nutritional value it is creating from the decomposing material Climate Climate By Daniel Porter
