  • Tropical Rainforest! (How does it look like?)
  • Slide 3
  • Location Map!
  • Slide 4
  • Bengal Bamboo! (Plant) You can find the Bengal bamboo in the biome of the southeast Asian rainforest. It often grows as an undergrowth plant or in patches in the forest. It grows very well from the environment around it, and from a lot of rainfall. It grows in a temperature between 40 degrees Fahrenheit and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Adaptations: The Bengal bamboo is adapted to its environment because it only grows in tropical rainforests. bamboo bamboo bamboo

  • Bromeliads! (Plant) There are 2700 and more species of bromeliads. The most known specie is the pineapple. Bromeliads have bright colored flowers like red, orange, blue, or purple. Bromeliads grow in different ways like growing on the ground, growing on rocks, or growing on other trees and plants. When they grow on other plants and trees they have the ability to absorb nutrients and moistures from the atmosphere, so sometimes they are called air plants. Hundreds of them grow on tropical trees, sometimes they make the branches break from their weight. profiles/bromeliad profiles/bromeliad profiles/bromeliad Adaptations: Bromeliads are a family are tropical plants that grow in tropical rainforests, Bromeliads also include pineapples. Many animals drink from the bromeliads, some animals like tree frogs live in them. The plant collects moisture and nutrients that is very important because many bromeliads are epiphytic and cant handle these essentials from their soil through their root system.
  • Slide 6
  • Mangrove Trees! (Plant) Mangroves are woody trees, they live in the edge where rainforests meet oceans, they grow on brackish wetlands between land and sea, where other plants cant grow. They protect and prevent the coastline. Adaptations: the roots of the adaptations increase the change of mangroves in the soft organic matter along the shoreline. Red mangroves have roots that are descending from the trunk and branches. Shallow roots surrounds the trunk of black mangroves adding change to the mangrove tree. In drier soils mangroves do not require special root structure.
  • Slide 7
  • The Red-Eyed Tree Frog! (animal) Many scientists believed that the red eyed tree frog developed his vivid to shock predators at least to make them know that its going to be killed. These rainforest animals daily sleep stuck to the leaf-bottom with their eyes closed body marking covered. when something disturbs them they open their eyes and scare them by attacking them the frog does that for its safety. eyed-tree-frog/ eyed-tree-frog/ eyed-tree-frog/ Adaptations: The red eyed tree frog sleeps at day time and is active at night time. The frog goes hunting at night so he could easily catch his pray. He has feet that are sticky so he could climb up trees, also strong legs, big eyes, and a beautiful color to help him camouflage during the day hours. When it is born, it lives with other frogs for a short time, and then for the rest of his life he lives alone.
  • Slide 8
  • The Capybara! (animal) The capybara is a rodent that looks like a big guinea pig, all mixed up with hippopotamus. The largest rodent on earth is the capybara. The capybara is 20-24 inches tall and 42-53 inches body length and male capybara is 77-140 pounds and the female capybara is 80-145 pounds. The capybara has wetted feet, which help him swim searching for food.
  • Slide 9
  • Chimpanzee (animal) Chimpanzees are about 3 to 5 feet tall and weighs from 99 to 176 pounds. They have lack hair. The adults are often bald, usually there will be a triangle on the male forehead, and more baldness in females. There is no hair on their faces, the faces turn darker every time they grow up. Chimpanzees have no tail, but they have white tail tuft. animals/list/Chimpanzee.html animals/list/Chimpanzee.html animals/list/Chimpanzee.html

  • How humans affect tropical rain forests?! The biggest impact on the tropical rainforest are the activities the humans do. People cut down trees because they need jobs, and wood makes a lot of money. They also cut trees because they need paper. We destroy other animals habitat and food just for our benefit. Together we can save the rainforests. _the_tropical_rain_forest_biome _the_tropical_rain_forest_biome _the_tropical_rain_forest_biome
  • Slide 11
  • What can be done to prevent this?! Preserving tropical rain forests involve more than just choosing not to cut trees. Social, political and economic factors all need to be taken into consideration. Researchers found that if the current rates of deforsation keeps going on, rain could drop 21 per cent in the amazon basins dry season by 2050. 2198809/Cutting-rainforests-dramatically-impact- rainfall-researchers-find.html 2198809/Cutting-rainforests-dramatically-impact- rainfall-researchers-find.html

  • Abiotic! Temperature: The temperature of the tropical rainforest is normally 41 degrees and drops down to 31 degrees and at night it drops to between 20 25 calicoes. rainforests rainforests rainforests Climate: The total of rainfall for the year is between 1500 and 2500 mm. there is no dry season. Rainfall: An average of 50 260 inches which is 125 660 cm of rain falls every year. Soil: Soil in the tropical rainforest is very poor/little. The soil is only 1-2 inches which is 2.5 5 cm deep. st.soil.html st.soil.html st.soil.html
