Alexis Gonzalez The Tropical Rainforest Precipitation and Temperature
of Rainforest The average precipitation of a rainforest is greater than 150 cm. In a month it receives 4 inches of rain. Producers Bengal bamboo http://www.google.com/imgres?hl=en&tbo=d&biw=1280&bih=923&tbm=isch&tbnid=yCmTMRsgFSlUEM:&imgrefurl=http://www.srl.caltech.edu/personnel/krubal/rainforest/Edit560s6/www/where.html&docid=5HS4hi-JoKLS2M&imgurl=http://www.srl.caltech.edu/personnel/krubal/rainforest/Edit560s6/www/images/where/whemap.gif&w=598&h=437&ei=otHnUOezDcTTigKVkoHgBg&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=4&vpy=162&dur=3143&hovh=192&hovw=263&tx=116&ty=103&sig=101622486273536198924&page=1&tbnh=136&tbnw=186&start=0&ndsp=27&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:128 40-80 feet, dark green Its adaption is growing tall fast. This lets it get a lot of rain and sunlight. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/images/bambusa_tulda2.jpg Bougainvillea This bamboo is mainly used by the Indian paper pulping industry. Some of its uses are for furniture and baskets. 30 or more feet, pink, white, red, orange, and yellow This plant adapts by having hooks so it can cling to other plants for support and leaves that have drip tips so the rushing water won't weigh it down. People use this flower as a houseplant. http://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%A7%D7%95%D7%91%D7%A5:Starr_030418-0058_Bougainvillea_spectabilis.jpg Producers Coconut Tree Curare about 24 inches, green They adapt in the rainforest by having their roots in the ground and climbing very high into the tree canopy to reach available sunlight. One of its interactions with other abiotic factors is using it as a light syrup. Indians from South America also use it as medicine. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_plant_page.htm 50-80 feet , brown One of its adaption is a basal trunk. This allows it to stay stable. This plant is a food source. The white meat in the coconut is eaten.Its coconut milk is also drinkable. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_plant_page.htm Producers Durian 90-130 feet, dark brown An adaption it has is its rough bark with vertical splits. It peels off easily which prevents other plants from growing onto it. Durian is a food source to animals and humans. The plant depends on a nocturnal bat, called Dawn Bat, for its pollination. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_plant_page.htm Jambu 10-20 feet, pink and yellow-green Jambu is adapted to having a crown that is to help collect water. open and non-symmetrical Jambu is a sweet fruit that is edible.That is why it is a food source. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/images/jambu3.jpg Producers Kapok Tree 150 feet or more, pinkish white to ashy brown
It's able to survive in the rainforest by growing tall to reach sunlight in the canopy.
This tree is a home for birds and a medicine for many sicknesses. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_plant_page.htm http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_plant_page.htm Mangrove Forests Mangrove forests are a home to many animals like lizards, sea turtles, and fishing cats. One of its adaptions is its support roots. They grow directly into the mud to anchor the tree. Producers Strangler Figs 148 feet, green In the rainforest many plants compete for water so figs adapt to avoid these difficulties. Strangler figs start out as epiphytes and as they grow they send out roots that encircle the host tree. The roots grow thicker and squeeze the trunk so it cuts off its flow of nutrients. Many animals like monkeys, parrots, and toucans feed on the fig tree. About 70% of rainforest animals eat figs for their diet. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_plant_page.htm Tualang 250 feet, bright green Tualang is a food source to humans. Its honey combs hang from the bottom of its branches. Its adaption is its slippery surface so it keeps away sun bears from trying to get honey. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_plant_page.htm Consumers Chimpanzee Chimpanzees are mammals. They are a secondary consumer. They are 3-5 feet tall and their fur is black. They survive by being able to climb trees so their predators can't reach them. They eat honey, bark, seeds, and nuts. Its predator is a leopard and a chimpanzee hunts monkeys. Females offspring one at a time and wait 3 or 4 years later. Their maximum life span is about 60 years in the wild. They are an endangered species and some people illegally kill or hunt them. There may be about 35,000 chimps in the wild left. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm Consumers King Cobra The Cobra are reptiles. It is a tertiary consumer. It can grow up to be as tall as 12-18 ft and its color is olive brown or black. It adapts by sinking its fangs into its prey and releasing the venom. It eats lizards, some frogs, and sometimes small mammals. One of their main predator is a human and Cobras hunt snakes. They lay 18-50 eegs and mate once a year. The newborns venom is as strong as an adults venom. The King Cobra population is put into a risk because we are are cutting down the rainforest. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm Consumers Dawn Bat Bats are mammals. Bats are secondary consumers. They are 6-8 cm. long and have dark brown fur. Bats adapt by hearing the sounds of their prey instead of seeing because they are blind. They eat flowers from the Mangrove Apple and the Durian. Their predator are humans and bats hunt for plant nectar. Bats have 1 baby at a time and they mate any time of the year. Baby bats are not completely weaned until after 3 months. Each day they are threatened to death if they post a threat to our crops. Many people think they are fruit pests. They may bring diseases, but they often make up more than half of the mammal species in a rainforest ecosystem. Consumers Bengal Tiger http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm The Bengal Tigers are mammals. They are tertiary consumers. Bengal Tigers can go up to 10 feet long and 3 feet tall. Their fur is orange and brown and their eyebrows, cheeks, mouth, and stomach are white. They also have black stripes. Tigers adapt by running really fast to catch its prey so it can eat. It eats boars, wild oxen, and many more. The Bengal tiger can kill larger animals, but prefers killing either young or old animals because they do not run as fast as the Bengal Tiger. Nothing eats the tiger because its on the top of the food chain in a rainforest and the Bengal Tiger also hunts monkeys. They have about 4 cubs any time in the year.Female mothers gestation period is about 3 months and 10 days. In the year 1900 there were 50,000 tigers existing, but now there are only 4,000 left in the world. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm Consumers Orangutans Orangutans are mammals. It is a secondary consumer. They can grow up to 5 feet tall. Females are 3 ft. tall and males are 4 ft. tall. Their fur is reddish brown. Two of their adaptions are their curved feet for balance and their strong arms for traveling among trees. They eat mainly fruits and plants like figs, nuts, and bark. Humans is the only predator to them and orangutans prey upon insects and birds. The orangutans are an endangered species. Humans poach, trap, and sell them as pets. The governments of Hong Kong and Singapore prohibited the killing and selling of those poor animals, the orangutans. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm Toco Toucan Consumers The Toco Toucan is a bird. Its role in the ecosystem is a scavenger. A toucan can grow to 24-26 inches in length and their bill is 8 inches. They have many beautiful colors like bright orange and black on their bill and their body is black with touches of white. One of their adaptions is its bill because when predators try to attack toucans can hit back with their gigantic bill. A Toco Toucan eats fruits and, sometimes, young birds, eggs, or lizards. One of its predator is a jaguar and toucans hunt insects. They have 2 or 4 eggs at a time and mate once a year. It depends where they live so they can mate and their babies are born featherless and blind. Toco Toucans are not an endangered species because it can adapt to man made habitats when the rainforest is destroyed. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm Consumers Linn's Sloth Linn's Sloth is a mammal. It is a scavenger. Their face color is white/tan face and the fur is black/dark brown. They are 28-29 inches tall. One of its adaptions they use is camouflage. Their fur grows algae so the green helps it camouflage. They eat leaves, bark, buds, and fruit. They sometimes eat mice and squirrel. A jaguar is its predator and the sloth hunts kangaroo rats. The Linn's Sloth have 1 baby at any time in a year. They are not on the endangered species list and the only threat they have is deforestation. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/linns_sloth.htm Consumers Jambu Fruit Dove The rainforest has many temperatures, but its average is 77 Fahrenheit. It never drops below 64 Fahrenheit. Decomposers Fungi Fungi has no type. It is an original fungi.
It fits in because it breaks down dead plant matter. Millipede Millipede is an invertebrate.
It fits in the rainforest because it can break down the log into the soil. Ants An ant is an invertebrate.
It fits into the rainforest because it can break down the leaves into the soil. Resources and Uses There are many resources and uses from them in the rainforest. For example, Annato is used as a red dye and coconuts are made into coconut oil for shampoo and suntan lotion. Bamboo is used for making baskets and furniture and Palm oil is used for shampoo and detergents. There are also edible resources to use. For example, Jambu is a sweet fruit that you can use for eating and Durian is also a delicious fruit that bats use as their nectar. At last there is the Tualang tree that is used for its sweet honey. There are a lot of great resources for many uses and we use these resources as medicine, food, or body care. That is why we have to stop chopping down any kind of forest because we destroy the home of many animals and our natural and useful resources. The Jambu Fruit Dove is a bird. It is a primary consumer. It is about 9 inches long, their wings are 3-6 inches, their forehead is pink, upper part of their throat and chin is black and their underparts are white with a pink breast patch. Their upper parts are a forest green. They adapt to the rainforest by camouflage because of their green feathers. It mainly eats Jambu fruit. Their predator is anything that can catch it like a weasel and their prey is fruit. They may have 1 or 2 eggs at a time and at any time of the year. The egg is incubated by both parents for 2-3 weeks. They are listed as threatened even though they aren't listed as an endangered species. The Jambu Fruit Doves are rapidly losing their homes from all the chopping down of rainforests. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm Consumers Slender Loris The Slender Loris is a mammal. It's a primary consumer. It's between 6-10 inches long, black or dark brown circles of fur, and grey-brown or light red-brown coat. One of their adaptions is to rub urine on them to soothe or defend against their predator. The Slender Loris eats mostly insects. They also eat young leaves, slugs and flowers. Their predator is the Barred Eagle-owl and it hunts insects. They normally have 2 babies at a time and mating occurs twice a year. The females gestation is 166-169 days. The Native people believed that there is some kind of medicinal or magic powers in all the parts of a Slender Loris. That has contributed greatly to the decline of these poor animals. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/slender_loris.htm Consumers Kinkajou Bibliography Title-Holt California Earth Science, Author- Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Copyright 2007, Publisher- Holt, Rinehart and Winston, Page- 590.
http://prezi.com/ The Kinkajou is a mammal. It is a primary consumer. It grows 16-30 inches and they have golden-brown fur. One of their adaption is sharp claws help them climb trees and their tail is to grip on trees. It is an omnivore. They eat insects, fruit, and honey. One of its predators is a big cat and the Kinkajou hunts birds. they have 1 baby at a time, rarely 2, and they mate year round. An interesting fact about them is their life span is 23 years. http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_animal_page.htm
