Web. 06 Apr. 2011. <http://www.srl.caltech.edu/personnel/krubal/rainforest/Edit560s6/www/where.html>. Energy Pyramid Producers Secondary Consumers Jambu and Strangler Figs Primary Consumers Silvery Gibbon Bengal Tiger The Bengal Tiger hunts medium-
sized animals such as Oxen and
Monkeys. The Bengal Tiger's population is not only determined by their prey but by the poachers who hunt them for their furs and whiskers. The Dawn Bat feeds off
of the Durin Tree The Dawn Bat and Durian Tree have a mutually benificial relationship. The Dawn Bat pollinates while the Durian fruit feeds. An Overview... There are two types of Rain Forests: Tempral and Tropical, we will be focusing on Tropical.
The Rain Forests are all centered around the earths equator and cover a total 6% of the world. However they are home to half the worlds species.
There are five major Rainforests: The Amazon, The Congo, Central America, Southeast Asia and Australian Three layers of the Rainforest A: Emergant, widely spaced trees, small leaves, 100-120 ft tall. B: Canopy, moderate light exposure, 60-80 ft tall C: Ground level, low sunlight, shrubs, bushes. Conclusion THE RAIN FOREST The rainforest is a very delicate biome. There is so much biodiversity, scientists believe there are countless of organisms yet to discover! The rainforests have so many different niches that a wide variety of organisms can live there. If we destroy the rainforests by deforestation, destruction of habitat, poaching, over fishing/hunting, and indirectly through climate change, we will destroy an essential biome of the world. The Amazon Rainforest alone provides more than 20% of the oxygen "Lungs of the World" We loose 137 species every day due to deforestation Around 80% of all the food we eat origniated in the rainforest.
