Transcript of rainforest
factory's dump stuff into the ocean and eventully reaches a rainforest causing animals to get sick, plants to die and beautiful streams to be muddy
SMALL AND LARGE
shade dwelling plants
plants that need sunlight
Interesting Fact: we destroy about 80,000 acres of rainforest per day.
How many layers of the rainforest are there?
What is the tree speed average for a sloth?
What are the names of the layers of the rainforest?
What is the food chain?
What do you think we can do to save our rainforests?
LAYERS OF THE RAINFOREST
each layer includes different plant and animals
BY WHAT YEAR DO YOU THINK RAINFORESTS WILL NO LONGER EXIST?
HINT: OVER 5 YEARS
ACCORDING TO ONE WEBSITE THE RAIN FOREST WILL ONLY LAST
MORE YEARS BEFORE EXTINCTION.
THIS IS ONLY A PREDICTION.
BLUE MORPHO BUTTERFLY
sloths ground speed averages 6 to 8 feet per minute. In trees, they move double that rate,traveling an average of 15 feet.
almost no plants grow
only shade dweller plants grow
plants begin to decay quickly
leaf might take year to decompose in regular climate
on forest floor it will disappear in 6 weeks
ant eaters, tigers, and many other animals live in this dark layer
ferns and vines are just two examples
plants have to grow larger leaves to reach the sunlight
many plants in area grow to
many plants + animals live here including: jaguars, red eyed tree frogs, leopards, and much more
lots of insects
hot and damp
shrubs, young trees, palms, and woody plants
lots of vines
have to compete for sunlight
TREES IN LAYER MAY BE AS HIGH AS
FORM ROOF OVER FOREST BELOW
LIKE AN UMBRELLA OR CANOPY
BUSIEST PART OF RAINFOREST
LEAVES, FLOWERS, AND FRUIT PROVID FOOD
FOR MONKEYS, BIRDS, SLOTHS, INSECTS, AND MUCH MORE
CANOPY PROTECTS GROUND FROM SUNLIGHT AND RAIN
RAINFALL WILL GET TO THE GROUND
LOTS OF BUTTERFLIES
AND BIRDS :)
BABY TREE KANGAROO
FEW TREES BREAK THROUGH CANOPY
THE TALL TREES BECOME THE EMERGENT LAYER
TREES IN EMERGENT LAYER CAN BE AS TALL AS SKYSCRAPERS
TOP OF TREES SHAPED LIKE UMBRELLA
GET LOTS OF SUN
HAVE TO PUT UP WITH WIND AND RAIN
LEAVES TO PROTECT THEM FROM THE
HARPY EAGLES AND MANY OTHER BIRDS LIVE IN LAYER
MANY BUTTERFLIES AND INSECTS
FEET ABOUVE FOREST FLOOR
RAINFORESTS NOW ONLY COVER A 1,OOO TH OF THE LAND THEY ONCE DID.
The word platypus means "flat feet"in greek.
Some plants adapt when they don't have much sun. For example the Venus flytrap lives on the forest floor and has to adapt to having little sunlight. Another example is a pitcher plant. They adapt to eating bugs because the food is scarce on the forest floor.
there will be a quiz at the end.
MUGGY, DAMP, COLD, STORMY, HUMID, FOGGY
The sun gives energy to the producers.
This tropical plant produces nector for the birds.
This bird eats the nector from the flower.
This anaconda eats the bird.
This tiger eats the anaconda.
IT IS RAINY. I MEAN DUH.THATS WHY THEY CALL IT A RAINFOREST.
The food chain is when a plant eats the energy from the sun, an animal eats a plant, an animal eats an animal and so on.
Reminder: there is no wrong answer to this question.
Deforestation ruins animals homes but it also gives us paper products, houses, wood products, and much, much more. This is a 2-sided situation. In my opinion each time you cut down a tree you should plant a new one. According to Oregon.gov , in Oregon replanting after deforestation is not a law, however it is a law in other states. This is a big problem considering some animals are either on the red list or on the endangered list. If one animal or plant goes extinct it could ruin the food chain.
For example the coatimundi has fur that will keep it warm in rainy or cold weather. The boa is the color of dirt which makes it hard to see. This protects it from predators and they have a great advantage on sneaking up on their prey. Chameleons adapt by changing colors. Anything they touch they automatically change that color. Nocturnal animals have to adapt when it becomes night and when it becomes day. All of these animals have one thing in common... They all adapt to change.
Light energy goes into the plant. The carbon dioxide goes in and the oxygen is released into the air and then glucose is stored in the plant as food.
