Transcript of Rainforest Choco

Rainforest Choco
Abiotic factors
The Chocó has a wide variety of animals, many of them are endangered.
Among the animals that inhabit the Chocó are:
-Carnivores: Ocelot, Jaguarundi, Armadilo,
Tamandua, Kingfisher, Frog, Churrinche
-Reptiles: Green Iguana (Iguana iguana)
lizard unidentified, unidentified snakes
-Herbivores: Howler Monkey, Tamandua, B Bees, Grasshoppers, Azuleja Tangara, Guaco

Average of Precipitation
Continents or Oceans
Distribution of the biome: The tropical rainforest is found between 10° N and 10°S latitude at elevations below 3,000 feet. There are three major, disjunct formations:
• Neotropical (Amazonia into Central America)
• African(Zaire Basin with an outlier in West Africa; also eastern Madagascar)
• Indo-Malaysian(west coast of India, Assam, southeast Asia, New Guinea and Queensland Austarlia)

Symbiotic Relationships
Competitive Relationships
Human Impact
Precipitation is any form of liquid or solid water particles that fall from the atmosphere and reach the surface of the earth. We can see that Choco forest is very rainy. The most rainy seasons are in the moths of October and November, with a precipitation of 173.8 in October and a precipitation of 176 in November. The least rainy seasons are in January February and august. In January we find a precipitation of 85.7 , in February we find that is of 98.1 and in August it is of 66.9.
The other months precipitates almost the same amount of rain. In march tha precipitation is of 141.6. In April is of 144.2, in May of 148.6, in June is of 143.1, in July it is of 118.3, in September is of 117.9 and in December is of 129.5.
In conclusion the average of precipitation in the choco rain forest during all the year is of 128.6416.

The north side of the Choco: The average of temperature during the year is of 26,33 ºC.
In choco Comlobia the tempertures are very high.In the first 4 moths of the year, January , febrary, march,and april, we can se that the temperture is of 27C. The next two moths the temperture doesnt fall that much. The temperture is of 26C.The next three months the temperture rises again to 27C.The finally three months are not that much coller. The temperture is of 26C. In conclutions the temperture varies between the 27 and 26 deggrees during all the year wich means that the temperture is very high.
They have the community leaders Baudó that entry of multinationals has been dissolving Chocoano culture, while promoting social corruption, environmental damage and displacement: "The river pollution is destroying fishing , children hired to work on the megaprojects leave the study in exchange for a pittance, and the use of mercury for mining has brought diseases such as vision loss, skin irritation and birth defects, "says one of the leaders.
Deforestation has been responsible for the erosion of riverbanks which have affected the levels of river beds, which has had negative impacts on aquatic life and fish stocks as well as on transportation and navigation because of silting. This forest clearing also accounts for great habitat destruction for creatures dwelling in the Colombian forests.
The territory of the Choco Department is conformed by the basins of the rivers Atrto, San Juan and Baudo, mainly covered by the equatorial forest. In this geographical framework they distinguish several physiographic units. The coastal strip divided by the Cabo Corrientes, considered the most important accident on the Paccific Coast, divided into two sectors, north of it, is rocky and steep, with numerous accidents, including Humbolt bays, Chirichire, Nabuga and Solano, who favor the establishments of ports, to the south of the before mentioned cape, the coast is low, swampy, covered by mangroves, canals and streams that make the deltas of the rivers flowing into the pacific.
This area is made up of sedimentary and volcanic rocs, the soils are poor in bases. The predominant vegetation are mangroves.
The serrania of Baudo parallel to the coast is made up of volcanic rocs from the tertiary. Soils developed on the slopes of the Serranía, are of low fertility.
Floor warm Neuropol vegetation corresponds to the mosaic of forest tropofilo.
Leaf cutter ants and fungus are an example of this relationship. The ants protect the fungi from pests and mold and also feed it with small pieces of leaves. The ants keep their larvae in the fungi which protects it and feeds it.

The strangler fig starts out life growing on a branch of a tree. It grows both downwards towards the ground and upwards to the sky, while also winding around the tree. The strangler fig kills the tree by stealing sunlight and root space after enveloping it.

Bromeliads, to get enough light, grow on high branches of trees. This does not do any damage to the tree itself, but it allows the bromeliad to survive.

In the dense tropical rainforests, there is fierce competition for sunlight. The taller, older trees that have established a spot in the forest shadow the ground. Due to that, new trees and other plants on the forest floor can't grow.
What would happend to the organisms if the sours ran out?
Both the older trees and the small plants will die. Also because the world needs sunlightso the temperture will fall wich will cause many organisms like planta stop to grow.The animals that live from these plants will die too.The bigger animals also will die because of these dead animal.Also if the plant die they wont produce oxigen wich means that all the living this that breath oxigen will die sooner or later.
What would happen if the organism suddenly had twice the number as the organism its competting with?
If the the old trees double the size they will cause more shadow wich means that the small plant will die all and all the species will extinguish.
If the small plants become double the number of its species they will expand the territory and they will provide more food to some animals that may eat them.They wouldnt affect that much the old trees because they are stonger and higher
The summer months (dry season) are usually January, February, March and mid-August. The rest of the year is the rainy season, which is strongest between October and early December. Colombia's Pacific coast is a region with high rainfall, which is directly responsible for the endless amounts of tropical species of flora and fauna. Of course, the rain shouldn't hinder those who come to rest, share with nature, enjoy sports fishing, surfing or whale watching.
