Plants: 1. African Teak
-grows up 50m tall, thick tree trunk, thin branches and lots of small leaves.
- it produces lumber for the people there to collect and it can be used to make boats, buildings and other useful items.

2. Moabi
- Rough tree trunk, long leaves connected together to form some kind of flower shape, thin long branches.
- it produces essential oils and hard wood that can be used.
3. Lobelia
- a flowering plant, petals droops, something like a bush, short, thin branches.
- it can be used as border plants in home gardens. Source: http://www.gardenguides.com/103986-plants-flowers-congo.html

Natural Vegetation
Geography Project 2013
Done By: Georgia Jacinta Lee (17)

Where are the tropical rainforests?
a) Map of the global distribution of tropical rainforests...
1. Africa
-about 9% of Africa's land is comprised of rainforests.
2. Indo-Malayan region/South and Southeast Asia
-the plants and flowers in these areas are the most populated and prettiest of any rainforests.
3.Neotropics (Central and South America)
-Amazonia is the most populated region and 60% of the trees
are nitrogen-fixing.
c)Latitudes and climates where tropical forests are found.
a) One location where tropical areas can be found mentioned in Q1b)
b)Size, location, three species of plants found there, three species of animals found there, two types of insects that are found in the forest

b) Three areas where tropical rainforests can be found.

Characteristics of tropical rainforests and adaptions...
4. Conservations of the rainforests
a) ‘The rainforests in the world are disappearing.’ Explain the meaning.
It means that humans are destroying and clearing rainforests, using the method of deforestation, to use it's land for development to make money.
bi) Should rainforests be conserved?
bii) Two reasons why rainforests should be conserved.
Congo Rainforest
3. Human uses of the tropical rainforests...
a) Two news articles about the Congo rainforest.
1. http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/jul/01/penguin-biscuit-makers-palm-oil

Rainforests should be conserved.
1. Trees give out oxygen and takes in carbon dioxide. This helps us to have enough supply of oxygen and less carbon dioxide.
2. If we clear all the rainforests, the animals who lives in the rainforests would have nowhere ese to go as the rainforests are their natural habitats and they would eventually be extinct.
Earth is our home
Where the sky is our dome.
With the birds chirping happily
This is where we're meant to be.

But people are harming the earth
In all types of ways.
It causes global warming
And it continues for days.

We pollute the air
Water and land
But the most important and hardest
Is indeed the rainforests

We should all do our part
To protect our rainforests
It will not be easy
But we must definitely try our best

Earth is our home
Where the sky is our dome
With the birds chirping happily
This is where we're meant to be

c) A poem
Three species of animals:
Two types of insects:
b)Two ways in which humans have used the rainforest.

1. Humans use the plants in the rainforest for oilment, medication, spice and many more.

2. Humans hunt for animals in the rainforests for food and clothes.

Thank You
c) Describe the tropical rainforest.
Structure of a tropical rainforest:
-Emergent layer: 45–55 m
-Canopy layer: 30–45 m
-Understory: 3m
-Forest floor: 0m
Leaves of plants in the tropical rainforest:
-Trees have thin smooth barks instead of thick rough ones,
-It doesnt need thick rough barks to slow down water loss as the climate is hot and wet.
Root of plants found in the tropical rainforests:
-They have roots called Buttress roots.
_They spread out wider instead of growing deep down into the soil to collect more water and nutrients and other useful things.
