Transcript of The Temperate Rainforest Biome

The Temperate Rainforest Biome
A terrestrial ecosystem
Biotic Factors
Some consumers in the temperate rainforest that are predators are lynxes, bears, wolves, cougars, hawks, and racoons. Somme consumers that are prey are deer and weasels. Weasels can also be predators. All of the listed animals can be hosts.
Abiotic Factors
Some abiotic factors of the temperate rainforest are climate, precipitation, soil, location, rocks, light, and wind.
A Food Web for the Temperate Rainforest
Some examples of competition in the temperate rainforest biome are: -The birds and the bears compete for fish.
-The cougars and the wolves compete for the elk.
-The weasel and the raccoon compete for the shade.
-The shrew and the amphibians compete for the same insects.
Ecitoninae and antbirds is an example of commensalism. The Ecitoninae (ants) take food and leave behind leftovers. The antbirds follow the ants and eat the leftovers. The ants also shake the floor when they walk, making insects fly up, then the antbirds eat them.

Some Ecitoninae
An example of mutualism is butterflies and flowering plants. Butterflies pollinate flowering plants. The plants get their pollen spread and the butterflies get food.

An example of parasitism is the relationship between a mosquito and an animal, such as the lynx. The mosquito sucks the lynx's blood. The mosquito is benefited while the lynx is harmed.
