Transcript of Untitled Prezi

What are the consequences if rain forests are destroyed?
Experts expect that over the next thirty-five to forty years the worlds plants, animals, and microorganisms in the rainforests will decrease their life expectancy.When the trees are cut down it takes away the habitat of the plants and animals. Over the longer term, deforestation of tropical rainforests can have a broader impact, affecting global climate
How many different kinds of rainforests are there in California?
There is one kind of rainforest in California. There is the temperate rainforest in California. The obvious element of climate in the temperate rain forest is precipitation. At least 200 cm of it, perhaps up to 350 centimeters in warmer areas. The precipitation can fall in the form of rain or snow The average annual temperature is above 32 degrees F largely influenced by the nearby ocean. The warmest of the temperate rainforests may have average annual temperatures around 68 degrees F.
It has been estimated that there may be many millions of species of plants, insects and microorganisms still undiscovered in tropical rainforests.
rainforests are being called "the jewels of the Earth" and the "world's largest pharmacy", because over one quarter of natural medicines have been discovered there.
Temperate forests cover a large part of the globe, but they only occur in few regions around the world.
What is the importance of
Lots of plants and animals live in rainforests. Plants in rainforests provide food and shelter for many rare animals that live there.Rainforests store water like a huge sponge. In fact, it is believed that the Amazonian forests alone store over half of the Earth's rainwater! Rainforest trees draw water from the forest floor and release it back in to the atmosphere in the form of swirling mists and clouds. Believe it or not rainforests are continually making water to make rivers, lakes, and irrigation systems. People drink water and feed their crops from lakes and rivers. Without rivers and lakes people would not have water for them or to feed their crops witch could cause widespread hunger and disease.
