the southeast asian rainforest
Transcript of the southeast asian rainforest
the geography is, fairly warm lots and lots of trees and a thick layer of canopy
the climate doesn't change much, the surrounding oceans provide moisture for the rain
there are many rivers and streams Southeast Asian Rainforest. adaptation: grows very tall to reach the sunlight through the thick canopy
adaptation: ten feet long, thick roots to soak up lots of water very fast for photosynthesis adaptation: covered in green mosses to blend into the ground so they do not become an animal's meal.
adaptation: these long think roots grow deep underground to soak up all of the nutrients Plant: Rafflesia Arnoldii measures more than three feet across
worlds largest flower
grows on ground
dark brownish orange
adaptation: has spines in the center of the flower to protect
adaptations: rotten meat smell to ward off pretators By: Emma b. & Caleigh j. ~ The southeast Asian Rainforest gets 69-79 inches of annual rainfall.
~ The average temperature is 64 degrees fahrenheit all months of the year.
~ This climate has 4 seasons; the winter, summer and two intermediate seasons.
~ This is a humid subtropical climate. a dark green leaf with a shiny coat.
grows in big clusters.
the slick coats to shed water is an adaptation because in the rainy months too much rain can be bad.
this leaf has a drip tip. a drip tip pulls the water to this point and then drips the water off. Plant: Pitcher Plant dark ruby red speckled leaves.
leaves in the shape of pitchers
adaptation: very deep so potential prey that falls in cannot escape.
adaptation: can hold up to two quarts of fluid, which is enough to drown a rat. Animal: sloth adaptation: moves slowly to protect its self from keen eyes of predators
adaptation: a sloth's hair grows towards its back so that rain drops will roll off as it hangs upside down
adaptation: algea grows on the hairs to help that sloth blend into the trees Animal: poison dart frog adaptation: brightly colored to ward off predators
adaptation: carries enough poison to kill 10,000 mice or 20 humans Animal: chameleon adaptation: can change color to blend into it's surroundings
they have long sticky tongues that can shoot out with great accuracy to catch insects and spiders Animal: Green Tree Python adaptation: green to blend into the canopy
adaptation: wraps around it prey to suffocate the victim Animal: bangle tiger adaptation: its teeth are designed to tear raw flesh
the tiger grabs and sufficates its prey by breaking its neck or crushing its windpipe
adaptation: has very strong legs to run fast to grab its victim cellular respiration presses in which the chemical bonds of energy are converted into energy usable for life processes.
all form except viruses carry out respiration photosynthesis a process by which plants use to create their own food.
light from the sun creates cloroplast. (the suns energy and CO2 with water combined)
these combinations create sugar and oxygen.
the plant lets off oxygen in to the atmosephere and uses the sugar for food. Green Tree Python Chameleon Indian Plum Tree Decomposers:
Break down cells of dead plants and animals into simplier substances. (Ex: Fungi) Endangered Species: Lar Gibbon the gibbons are unlike other apes
they act as seed carriers for the fruits they eat
they swollow most of the seeds in their diet
several fruits are dependent on the digestive process both remove the outer cover of the seeds and to despers them throughout their environment
without out the gibbons many of the fruits they eat would also become extinct
looks like a small ape with a white and black face Height: Up to four feet long.
Weight: 220-330 pounds
Population: less than 1,600 left.
Color: black and white.
Scientific name: Ailuropoda Melanoleuca Endangered Species: The Giant Panda Why are they Endangered?
low reproductive rate
human traps (snares)
Assist China and influence policy level conservation decisions.
Give information collection
Demonstrations of conservation approaches
Conservation plan: Description: Description: people are cutting down the trees they live in Conservation plan: they are now making new villages for the lar gibbon to save them Reason for endangerment: Cited Sources: Blueplanetbiomes.org
