The green shows where this biome can be found.


Rainfall in tropical rainforest

Rainfall in Tropical Rainforest

  • An average of 50 to 260 inches (125 to 660 cm.) of rain falls yearly. In other climates, the evaporation is carried away to fall as rain in far off areas, but in the rain forests, 50 % of the precipitation comes from its own evaporation. The rainfall is all year long. Some seasons just might not have as much rain as others.


Plants

Plants

  • Strangler Figs- Grows up to 148 feet in height to reach the sunlight.

  • Bengal Bamboo

  • Bougainvillea- Has many hooks so it can hold onto other plants

  • Coconut Tree

  • Jambu- The crown of it is open so it can get rain.


Herbivores

Herbivores

  • Capybara- adapts to live in rivers and bodies of water.


Herbivores1

Herbivores

  • Asian Elephant- uses fingers, at the end of its trunk, to pick up and eat small food.


Herbivores2

Herbivores

  • Gorillas- long hair protects them from biting insects.


Herbivores3

Herbivores

  • Okapi- They have large ears to hear large predators.


Herbivores4

Herbivores

  • Fruit bat- the webbing between the bats fingers, creates wings.


Carnivores

Carnivores

  • Chimpanzee- At nights they construct nests of leaves and branches in a tree.

  • Dawn Bat

  • Orangutan- They have curved feet to help them balance when standing on trees.

  • Kinkajou

  • Golden Lion Tamarin- They have strong legs to climb up to their nests.


Tropical rain forest1

Tropical Rain Forest

The tropical rain forest cover about 6% of the earths surface. They are mainly located at the equator. It is mainly rainy and humid. They hold the most plants and animals in such a small area. The latitude is usually 15-25 degrees

Predator and Prey

  • Predator- Anaconda

  • Prey- Capybara


Parasitism

Parasitism

  • Rafflesiaarnoldi


Competition

Competition

  • Humans tearing down trees which are homes for monkeys.

  • Fungi and ants

Benefits of tropical rainforest

Benefits of Tropical Rainforest

Rainforests help stabilize the world's climate by absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is believed to contribute to climate change through global warming. Rainforests are home to a large number of the world's plant and animals species, including many endangered species. As forests are cut down, many species are doomed to extinction. Some rainforest species can only survive in their natural habitat because they have adapted to it.


Biggest threat to tropical rainforest

Biggest threat to Tropical Rainforest

Man is the largest threat. We destroy everything in the rainforest. Humans cut down trees and destroy animal homes.


Wetland

Wetland?

  • Yes, it is considered a wet land because it rains all year long. They can average between 6 and 30 feet of precipitation per year.
