Transcript of Planet Libero

The Planet of Libero By Sarah Burgett Description The planet Libero is a lot like Earth and has a tropical monsoon forest all over its surface. The biome has a temperature of 28 degrees Celsius. These tropical forest have two seasons, which are a dry season and a rainy season . These seasons are caused by the monsoon winds that occur on the planet. The biome also has an average rainfall of 3420 mm per year. The Tropical monsoon forest biomes are located at elevations that are under 1,000 feet and at 30 degrees south of the equator. The greenhouse effect (caused by the natives of the planet) is making the climate warmer and more water is being evaporated and some of the species are dying out because of the drought. Common biotic factors found in the forest are Lions, giraffes, bamboo and earthworms. Both the abiotic and biotic factors and necessary for a healthy biome, without the abiotic factors the biotic factors would not be able to survive. Abiotic Factors The highest elevation is The temperature: The forest has an average temperature of 28 degrees Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit) and has a temperature range of about 2 to 6 degrees Celsius. The planet maintains this temperature because of its location near its sun and the way the planet rotates. Elevation: The elevation of the tropical monsoon forest are under 1,000 feet.
Sunlight: More sunlight shines through the canopy during the dry season because the tree lose their leaves to conserve water and during the rainy season less sunlight reaches through the dense leaves.
Latitude: The common latitude line is 30 degrees South on Earth and are located near the equator, but on Libero the biome is located throughout the entire planet. Rainfall: The average amount of rainfall is 3420 mm. The majority of the rain comes during the wet season
Seasons: There are two season on Libero. The dry season occurs during the winter months and the wet season occurs during the summer months.
The Greenhouse effect: The greenhouse effect is heating up the biome, which is causing droughts in the outer parts of the forests and animals have had to move closer together so there is more competition for food.
Biogeochemical Cycle of Matter: The biogeochemical cycles that are on the planet are the water cycle, nitrogen cycle, and carbon cycle Biotic Factors Producers: Producers are the organisms at the bottom of the food chain. They get their energy from the sun. Some common producers are bamboo, ferns and epiphytes Herbivores: eat plants only
Pandaroos eats different producers but its main diet consists of bamboo. The pandaroos is preyed upon by the tigers and they keep the producers' population under control.
Spotted deer eat epiphytes that they find near the ground they also eat other shrubs on the forest floor. They are the main prey for leopards
Giraffes eat the ferns and leaves off of the tall trees that other species cannot reach. Their main predator is the tigers and keep the plant population under control.
White Elephant eat the leaves and fruits off of the trees. They are hunted by the Libroians and by large groups of tigers. Biogeochemical Cycles Human Impact Works Cited Problem: The natives of the planet Libro are adding CO2 and ripping down forest for building more volleyball courts. The CO2 is adding to the greenhouse effect which changes the climate and causes droughts in certain areas of the forest.

Solution: One solution is to put a limit on how many trees the natives can cut down for courts and they need to become aware of how much CO2 they are putting into the atmosphere and natives will get extra playing time and money for reducing the amount of CO2 they put in the air. They could also use other resources, such as sand, to make more courts and buildings. Omnivore: eats both meat and plants such animals that are in the biome are,
Liberoians the native people of the planet and are at the top of the food chain they eat a lot of meat (such as tigers) and epiphytes and bamboo.
Howler Monkeys eat fruits, epiphytes and insects which make them omnivores. They are preyed upon by leopards. Symbiosis:
Mutualism - when two species live together and both benefit, an example of mutualism is between the bees and the orchids
Commensalism - where one animal benefits off the other but does not harm the other, an example is between a tree frog living in the tubular flowers for shelter.
Parasitism - where one animal benefits off of another animal while hurting the other one, an example is of a tapeworm living inside the tiger. Detritivores/Decomposers: The decomposers are the organisms that break down other dead organisms, while detritivores break down decaying material such as leaf litter. A few examples are, saprophytes, earth worms and pulmonate snail. The decomposers jobs is important. They release nutrients back into the soil and keep the forest clean. Water Cycle the water cycle plays a key role in the monsoon forest. The ocean water is evaporated and then when it rains the water is soaked up by the plants and goes into the rivers and lakes. The rivers then flow back into to the ocean. Nitrogen Cycle supports the producers and the nitrogen in the ground is converted by the bacteria that grows in the forest for the plant uses. Once the plants have used the nitrogen it is released back into the air and the process is started over again Carbon Cycle - the animals in the biome release carbon dioxide into the air. Plants then uses the carbon dioxide to function and they release oxygen back into the air. This is a crucial cycle for life anywhere. Carnivores: There are many different carnivores on the planet some of the major ones are,
Tigers - are one of the top predators in the forest. They are just under the Liberoians in the food chain.
Leopards - are also on of the top predators
The carnivores will get 1% of the original energy from producers since most of the energy is lost as heat, while herbivores get 10% of the original energy. Food Web Energy Pyramid The energy pyramid shows how the energy from the sun is lost as the levels go up. The producers (bamboo, ferns etc.) get 100% of the energy. On the next level, herbivore, (pandaroos, giraffes, etc.) get 10% and the level above that carnivores get 0.1% and if the Libroians eat the carnivores they will get 0.01% of the original energy.
