  2. Tropical RainforestGeography & Climate • Location:30 degree north and 30 degrees south longitude and latitude. • Description: Central and South America, West Africa, East Madagascar, Zaire Basin, Indo Malaysia, Assam, Southeast Asia, New Guinea, and Queensland Australia. • Soil type: Shallow soil. • 80 to 400 inches of rainfall a year. • 70 to 85 degrees ferinheit. • Climate: Lush and warm all year round. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://library.thinkquest.org/11353/media/trforest.jpg&imgrefurl=http://library.thinkquest.org/11353/trforest.htm&

  3. Tropical RainforestBiodiversity • Plant species: Ephiyte, mosses, ferns, coniferous trees(10 to 20 species) ,and broad leaf trees. • Animals: mammals, birds: Toucans, reptiles, amphibians, butterflies , mosquitoes , stick bugs, ants, chipmunks, and Spider monkeys. • Plants and animals: 3,085 species http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.srl.caltech.edu/personnel/krubal/rainforest/Edit560s6/www/images/animals/animals.gif&imgrefurl=http://www.srl.caltech.edu/personnel/krubal/rainforest/Edit560s6/www/animals.html&usg=__dsavoXViNsh5vsoHyonpF3DTo9U=&h=655&w=500&sz=250&hl=en&start=4&zoom=1&tbnid=pKMKAGHZzMYCvM:&tbnh=138&tbnw=105&ei=DJ35UKWMJ8LS2AW6o4HACA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drainforest%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  4. Tropical RainforestAdaptations Needed for Survival • Plants: Epiphyte- grows on tree branches to take advantage of sunlight. • Animal: New world monkey: has prehensile tails that curl around branches to hold on. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.rainforesteducation.com/whitefaces.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.rainforesteducation.com/&usg=___p0tqMwMsj5XPlnZSxKbLJUINmg=&h=471&w=715&sz=238&hl=en&start=7&zoom=1&tbnid=xjuYHakQM4fFsM:&tbnh=92&tbnw=140&ei=DJ35UKWMJ8LS2AW6o4HACA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drainforest%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  5. Tropical RainforestInteractions of Biotic and Abiotic • Biotic: Plants feed the animals. Animals hunt other animals. T he large trees compact soil holding it in place. • Abiotic: Heavy rain helps trees grow. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.bergoiata.org/fe/trees/Hoh%2520Rainforest,%2520Olympic%2520National%2520Park,%2520Washington.jpg&imgrefurl=http://room42.wikispaces.com/Rainforest%2BClimate&usg=__PEARTiHtsjPYSTutNjRJHvYqejI=&h=1200&w=1600&sz=623&hl=en&start=20&zoom=1&tbnid=2AyfsCs9bt4DXM:&tbnh=113&tbnw=150&ei=DJ35UKWMJ8LS2AW6o4HACA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drainforest%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  6. What is Biodiversity? • Biodiversity is the variety of plants and animals. They can be studied on many levels. Highest level is the scale of all the different things on Earth. On small scales you can study small areas like a pond. Greatest challenges in science are identifying and understanding the relationships between one another. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.australia.com/contentimages/explore-itineraries-rainforest-way.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.australia.com/explore/itineraries/rainforest-way.aspx&usg=__20751ITQSZXGGSsVaAx7SEwKjOs=&h=1080&w=1920&sz=634&hl=en&start=14&zoom=1&tbnid=lfn129VG4_dXkM:&tbnh=84&tbnw=150&ei=DJ35UKWMJ8LS2AW6o4HACA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drainforest%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

  7. How does biodiversity contribute to the sustainability of an ecosystem? Biodiversity helps and ecosystem by providing food for all the animals. Helping to keep sustainability is key for a ecosystem, plants and animals help do this. Too many of a certain population can be a bad outcome. For example: a wolf needs to control the deer population so they are not overcome with the deer. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.islands.com/files/_images/201102/Dominica_Calendar_Wallpaper_1920x1200.jpg&imgrefurl=http://www.islands.com/wallpaper/rainforest-waterfall&usg=__OWW_9o5ST50k3epDKCyg2kp4Pyc=&h=1200&w=1920&sz=3165&hl=en&start=10&zoom=1&tbnid=wXiKVvrdjPM8AM:&tbnh=94&tbnw=150&ei=DJ35UKWMJ8LS2AW6o4HACA&prev=/search%3Fq%3Drainforest%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client%3Dfirefox-a%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Dorg.mozilla:en-US:official%26tbm%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1
