Transcript of The Philippines

Humans affect the biome of this region because garbage/wastes are not disposed of properly, and waste is being disposed into watery areas (such as sewers, rivers, lakes and oceans.). We’re also threatening and removing tropical animal habitats, by cutting down trees for logging and burning of forests. Humans use dynamite to blow fish from the oceans, and use them for marketing, which is why coral reefs and any land within range are being affected.

13,500 species of plants.
1,000 varieties of orchids, and 3,800 types of trees.
Other floral plants include jasmine, aurora, kalachuchi, gumamela, roses and ilang-ilang.
Since the Philippines has a Tropical Forest biome, here are the plants' adaptations in this biome:
They have large spanning leaves, with a waxy coating on them to catch and absorb the rain.
They also have large roots to collect all of the water from the soil.
However, there are different layers in a tropical rain forest so you would have to accommodate for each layer.

Some animals are very specialized which means, they adapted to eating a specific plant or animal that few others eat. Some trees depend on animals to spread the seeds of their fruit to distant parts of the forest.
Birds and mammals eat the fruits, and travel some distance before the seeds pass through their digestive systems in another part of the forest. Many rainforest animals use camouflage to 'disappear' in the rainforest. Some animals are poisonous, and use bright colors to warn predators to leave them alone.
In the waters of the Philippines there are more than 2000 different kinds of fish. Added to that figure, the country counts about 200 different kinds of reptiles and 25000 different insects. The smallest monkey and the biggest fish in the world, they both live in the Philippines!
