Why is the rainforest both an ecosystem and a biome

Why is the rainforest both an ecosystem and a biome?

A biome is

An ecosystem is

The rainforest is both because



What are the two main factors that affect where different biomes occur?

What climatic conditions do rainforests need to grow?


Productivity in the rainforest
Productivity in the rainforest biomes occur?

What is the climate of the rainforest?

What causes it to rain so much?



Which area (Africa or Europe) did we say had the sun directly overhead?

Which area has the sun spreading out over a larger area?

Which area

is hotter then?





Why do these four layers grow up? lush vegetation in the rainforest?



More than 50% of the world's plant and animal species inhabit the 7% of the world that is covered in rainforest.A four-square mile patch of rainforest contains as many as 1500 species of flowering plants, 750 species of trees, 125 species of mammals, 400 species of birds, 100 species of reptiles, 60 species of amphibians, and 150 species of butterflies.

  • Using what you now know, explain why the rainforest has such a high species diversity.


? is inhabit the 7% of the world that is covered in rainforestthe total amount of CO2 that is fixed by the plant in photosynthesis.

? is the net amount of primary production after the costs of plant respiration are included.

Therefore,NPP = GPP ? R






What role do the producers (plants) have in this ecosystem? productivity?What role do the decomposers have?What role do the consumers have?




Where are nutrients stored in this cycle? ocelots?

Where do nutrients come from?

How can nutrients be lost from this system?




What are the energy transformations in photosynthesis and respiration what happens to light energy

What are the energy transformations in photosynthesis and respiration?What happens to light energy?






How does the water cycle work
How does the water cycle work? the rainforest ecosystem?

  • Fact: the rainforest ecosystem? We lose 50 species everyday due to deforestation of tropical forests.Fact: Over 2,000 tropical forest plants have been identified as having anti-cancer properties.Fact: Less than 5 percent of the world's tropical forests are protected.
