Transcript of Bamboo Forest of China

Bamboo Forest of China
Plants in the Chinese Bamboo Forests
- Bamboo
-Small plants
Bamboo forests are located in Southern China
The abiotic factors in a bamboo forest are sunlight, water, temperature, rocks, soil, air, and oxygen levels
Some animals native to bamboo forests are:
Giant Pandas
Red Pandas
Stick bugs
Golden Monkey
Adaptions of each native plants:
Bamboo- ability to grow back rapidly after eaten or used
Moss- Ability to function using very little sunlight
Small plants- ability to reproduce rapidly to make up for lost plants
Adaptions that a Giant Panda
has made are that it has powerful jaw
muscles for crunching bamboo also, it can digest cellulose.

The adaptions Red Pandas have are
claws to climb trees, strong jaws to eat
bamboo, and a striped tail for camouflage

Adaptions that
stick bugs have made is
that they look like bamboo
The adaptions that
golden monkeys have made
are that they have claws for
climbing, a tail for hanging on, and
strong jaws for crunching bamboo.
Two interactions between organisms are:
Competition between Red panda and Giant panda for bamboo. Both panda want the same bamboo in the same place.
Cooperation between the Giant panda and bamboo. When Pandas eat bamboo, they get energy and bamboo is benefited and becomes stronger and healthier when it grows back.

The average rainfall in this area of China
is ranges from 1000-2000 mm annually.
Thats about
40-80 inches.

Some great places to visit if you go to a bamboo forest are:
A Bamboo forest with long paths in throughout and a wooden bridge
Anji bamboo forest-
A bamboo forest where you can ride a "roller coaster" through the forest. Also, there are several lakes in the forest.
The average temperatures in this area are
77 degrees
68 degrees
. (annual average)
Some gear/clothing you would need to go to a bamboo forest are:
rain jacket
rain boots
Some Recreational Activities in Bamboo Forests are:
Fishing in ponds.
Two Nearby Biomes Are:
Broad leaf forest
The main threats to the bamboo Forest biome are:
Threatened species in Bamboo forests:
Giant Panda
The Endangered species in Bamboo forests are:
Giant Panda

Red Panda

Golden Monkey
If the Climate on earth was to change, than the bamboo forests of china would be greatly impacted. Bamboo can only survive in a very limited range of temperatures. If the world climate decreases, it would not be good for bamboo. Bamboo dies usually at around freezing, so a snowfall in the forest would be disastrous. Also, a drastic increase in temperature would be bad. Giant Pandas are rather large and would not do well in hot weather and would die off. Then, with Bamboo's main "predator" gone, it would grow enormously, therefore depleting its water sources, and it would all die.
Bamboo Forests are very important worldwide.
Bamboo is an excellent material from everything from houses to mats. Also, it grows so quickly, that it is ready to harvest 6 months after it is harvested last. this makes it an excellent renewable material.
