Transcript of Rainforest Biome

The Rainforest Biome By: Hannah Eng, Mira Spizzirri, Tori Pyle Central and South America (0-30S)
Southern Asia
(0-30N) Locations Climate Rainforest Fun Facts Biotic Factors Hot and Humid Average temperature is about 25 degrees Celsius (77F)

Never drops below 18 degrees Celsius (64F) Rainy! About 50 to 260 cm per year Sunlight mostly hits canopy.

Hardly any sunlight reaches the plants in the understory. Plants that grow in the understory have to adapt to little sunlight. Most rain does not get through the canopy, which is the tops of the taller trees, because it is so dense.

Plants on the forest floor, or the understory, receive very little rain. Animals Consumers Decomposers · Earthworms

20S-25S) Mostly located around or near the Equator because that's where the ideal climate conditions are. In the herb layer there are non- photosynthetic plants that feed off off fungi that feed off of trees. "TROPICAL RAINFORESTS." Rainforest Information for Kids. N.p., n.d. Web. 21 Sept. 2012. <http://kids.mongabay.com/>. Tropical Rainforest." N.p., n.d. Web. 22 Sept. 2012. <https://php.radford.edu/~swoodwar/biomes/?page_id=100>. Canopy Is made up of overlapping branches and leaves of rainforest trees.
100 feet (30 meters) off the ground.
During the day the canopy is hotter and dryer than other parts of the forest. Animals Found Here monkeys
small cats Emergent Layer Is at least 200 feet off the forest floor.
Most of these trees are evergreens. Animals Found Here Eagles
Butterflies Understory Layer Gets little sunlight
plants grow broader leaves
Plants rarely grow 12 feet. Animals Found Here Jaguars
Red eyed-tree frogs
Large concentration of insects Immature Layer "Rainforest Facts." Rainforest Facts. N.p., n.d. Web. 23 Sept. 2012. <http://www.rain-tree.com/facts.htm>. The Amazon rainforest covers over one billion acres.
More than half of the worlds estimated 10 million species of plants, animals, and insects live in tropical rainforests.
At least 3,000 fruits are found in the rainforest.
The Amazon rainforest has been described as "The Lungs of our Planet".
1 million acres of rainforest are deforested every week. In one year, the amount of rainforest lost equals about the size of Great Britain. Herb Layer Some of the plants that grow here are ferns, grasses, and wildflowers.
One of the thickest layers.
Gets just enough sunlight for plants to grow Animals Found Here Insects
Deer Interesting! Also known as the shrub layer
Where small trees grow.
Depending on how thick the canopy layer is, the immature layer will be large or small www.blueplanetbiomes.com http://rrms-biomes.tripod.com/id4.html
