Transcript of Going Inside The Tropical Dry Forest Biome

Geographic Distribution Tropical dry forests are located in India, Indochina, Western Africa, Southern Africa, South and Central America and Northern Australia Climate The Climate of a Tropical Dry Forest is seasonal and tropical
The average temperature is more than 65 degrees farenheit.
The average rainfall is 40-100 inches. Abiotic Factors Warm for the majority of the year.
Wet and dry seasons that alternate
Rich soils that are subject to erosion Dominant Wildlife Tigers
Monkeys
Elephants
Hog Deer
Pied Harrier
Spot-Billed-Pelican
Termites
monitor Lizards
Mountain Lions
Coyotes
American Alligators
Tasmanian Devils Symbiosis Mutualism: The Acacia Tree and the ants. The tree provides the ants with tunnels and fruit while the ants defend the tree.
Commensalism: Cactus Wren are beginning to nest inside ant Acacia Trees which interrrupt the ants being able to gain food from the tree. This will force the ants to find food elsewhere which means the tree will lose protection.
Parasitism: Epiphytes are plants that attach to tree limbs. The Epiphytes extract the moisture from the tree and slowly kill the tree. Endangered Species Jaguars
White Tigers
Nightingale reed-warbler
White-winged Guan
Puerto Rican Parrot Producers Shrubs
Fungi
Mainly Deciduous plants
Orchids
Bromeliads
Aloes
numerous succulents Consumers Herbivores include deer, elephants and rhinos
Carnivores include mainly tigers, and jaguars and cougars
The main omnivore in a tropical dry forest is a bear. Human Impact Deforestation: While humans are depleting the forest vegetation is being destroyed. Deforestation also disrupts the relationships and habitats that animals have.
As habitats are lost so are animals which leads to a drop in the diversity in animals.
Hunting has also negatively impacted tropical dry forests. Tigers and other wild cats have been hunted to near extinction.
Much of the land is being cleared because tropical dry forests are the most desired places to live.
Pollution that is heavily found in tropical dry forests comes from mining, specifically gold. Sources of Information http://www.botany.wisc.edu/courses/botany_422/Lecture/Lect08TropDry.html
