Daintree Rainforest is located at the coast of Queensland, Australia.
Australia's Largest Rainforest
By: Madeeha, Alex, and Sadie
In the summer, there is little to no rainfall, and when there is rainfall, then they have flash flood warnings.
In the winter, is best to visit Daintree, and that is the time period when trees grow intensely and have to fight for survival because they do not get enough sunlight because they are so big.
Free energy allows the organisms to obtain the energy needed to carry out daily life routines. For example, photosynthesis in the rain forest which allows the plants to live, and continues to benefit other organisms.
Leaf cutter ants and fungus are an example of mutualism. The ants protect the fungi and also provides it with food. The fungi, in return, allows the ants keep their larvae in them.
The strangler fig originates on the branches of trees, but it spreads up, down, and around the tree.The strangler fig kills the tree by stealing sunlight and root space after enveloping it.
Bromeliads grow on the tops of trees so they can obtain enough sunlight. This has a positive affect for the Bromeliads but no affect on the trees.
There is a large fight for sunlight. The taller, older trees have more sunlight and the new trees and plants have to compete with them for the necessary amounts of sunlight they need.
Carbon: This moves from the environment to organisms and it helps make carbohydrates, proteins, lipids or nucleic acids.
Nitrogen: This moves from the environment to organisms, and it helps build proteins and nucleic acids.
Phosphorus: This moves from the environement to organisms, and it helps build some certain types of lipids and nucleic acids.

-Energy flows from:
1. Primary Producers
2. Primary Consumers
3. Secondary Consumer
4. Tertiary Consumer
-The farther along the food chain you go, the less energy can be obtained by the consumer.
How does the populations stay stable?
The climate and conditions in the rainforest remain constant for 3/4ths of the year. Because of this, the abiotic factors of the ecosystem don't seem to affect many of the organisms in the area. However, biotic factors such as other organisms cause constant interspecific and intraspecific competition which can cause a population to fluctuate.
Potential Invasive Species
-It is equipped with specially developed chemical toxins, a fast attack, and the ability to easily navigate across both water and land.
-Has the potential and abundance to wipe out many different species seeing as how it has no natural predators
Humans are tearing down trees and the habitats of organisms that have lived in these areas for years. This not only is bad for the environment, but also causes a decrease in biodiversity in the areas as well as leaves organisms without a niche. This can also be a detrimental factor to the ecosystem.
