TROPICAL RAINFOREST ECOSYSTEM
Transcript of TROPICAL RAINFOREST ECOSYSTEM
Abiotic Characteristics of our Ecosystem
The climate of our ecosystem is mainly humid all year.
Average temperature of the rainforest is 77 degrees Fahrenheit.
When it is winter in the USA it is summer over in Australia.
Air fluctuates about 24-30 degrees.
Daintree Rainforest usually receives vast amounts of rain, when it is not raining the sun is highlighting the rainforest and sea.
Secondary consumers, carnivores, omnivore, or scavenger
Primary Consumers, herbivores
Bull Kauri (Plants)
Lemon aspen (Fruits)
Brown Tamarind (Nuts)
Onion wood (Berries)
Humans impact on our ecosystem
The Daintree rainforest is located in Northern Queensland, Australia. The Daintree is also called "Hot Tropics. " The Daintree Forest is also the oldest intact tropical rainforest living on earth.
The Gondwana Rainforest is located in Southeast of Queensland and Northeast of New South Wales. This rainforest provides habitats for threatened species of plants and animals.
Deforestation is happening by us humans. This is causing major problems to the rainforests and is destroying it's beauty and these animal's homes.
Us humans can take care of the rainforest and keeping it's history. We can plant more plants for the animals and rescue any injured animals in need. The best thing us humans can do is to leave the forest alone while maintaining it's beauty.
Ways To Help Our Ecosystem:
Don't take short cuts through the forest as man-made walking trails because it could cause erosion and die back.
Use elevated boardwalks if possible.
Don't pick the flowers.
Leave the forest seeds where they lay.
Don't pollute the water and don't FEED the wild life.
LEAVE THE FOREST AS YOU FOUND IT.
Stangler Fig to Tree Host- Stangler fig wraps around the tree and cuts off light from the tree and stops photosynthesis. Eventually the tree would die.
Leaf Cutter Ants to Phorid flies- Phorid flies lay their eggs in ant’s heads. The egg hatches, and the flies burrow into the ants body while feeding on the ant, to the point where the ant dies. The Phorid Flies benefits and the ants do not.
Ants to Fungi- The ants protect fungi from mold and pests, and feeds them little pieces of leaves.
Butterfly to Flower- Butterfly gets nutrients & the flower gets pollinated.
Stag Horn to Tree Host- The stag horn uses the tree to get closer to the sun and the tree is unaffected.
Bromeliads to Trees- Bromeliads grow on branches to get enough sunlight. The tree is unaffected.
Decomposers gets energy from every dead thing.
Definition: When one organism benefits and the other doesn't get harmed and doesn't benefit.
Definition: When both organisms benefit their interaction.
Definition: When one organism benefits from the interaction, while the other suffers or die.
