  • JOSE LOPEZ
    Tropical Dry forest
  • Plants
    Orchids
    Orchids can take you from the worst day at work to tropical jungles in an instant.  Many varieties bloom for a long time - some flowers will last months before fading which makes them a perfect way to spice up a home or business environment.
  • bromeliads
    Bromeliads are a Neotropical family which means they grow virtualy exclusively in the New World tropics (and subtropics). Most come from South America with the greatest number of species found in Brazil. They range from Chile and Argentina in South America through Cental America and the Caribbean reaching their northern limit aroung Virginia in the southeastern United States.
  • succulents
    Succulent plants, also known as succulents or fat plants, are water-retaining plants adapted to arid climates or soil conditions. Succulent plants store water in their leaves, stems, and also in roots. Geophytes that survive unfavorable periods by dying back to underground storage organs such as tuberous roots, corms, bulbs, and rhizomes, may be regarded as succulents
  • aloe
    Many species of Aloe appear to be stemless, with the rosette growing directly at ground level; other varieties may have a branched or unbranched stem from which the fleshy leaves spring. They vary in color from grey to bright-green and are sometimes striped or mottled. Some Aloes native to South Africa are arborescent .
  • canopy
    Dominant and co-dominant canopy trees form the uneven canopy layer. Canopy trees are able to photosynthesize relatively rapidly due to abundant light, so it supports the majority of primary productivity in forests
  • Animals
    Rhinoceroses
    Rhinoceroses are universally recognized because of their massive bodies, stumpy legs and either one or two dermal horns. But this animal is most famous for the fact that it has got a very thick hide.
    Great pigreat Hornbill is a large bird, which grows to a height of around 100 to 120 cm. It wingspan measures somewhere around 150 cm and the tail feathers are 36 inches in length. The Great Hornbills of India have an average weight of 6.5 poundsed hornbills
  • Animals
    Snakes Many snakes, such as pythons, have lots of sharp teeth, but none dedicated to delivering venom.
    The Hog Deer (is a small deer whose habitat ranges from Pakistan, through northern India, to mainland Southeast Asia.
  • Animals
    “The tiger's striped coat helps them blend in well with the sunlight filtering through the treetops to the jungle floor.”
    Tiger
    Tigers have great hearing and they use it to communicate over long distances.
    They are the largest species of felines.
  • Facts
    Keystone Species
    Quercusoleoides (live oak) is the dominant tree species in these remnant forests and its ability to recolonize abandoned pastures will play an important role in the restoration of tropical dry forest in the Área de Conservación Guanacaste (ACG) of northwestern Costa Rica.
    Characteristics of Tropical Dry Forest
    With a well defined dry season, tropical dry forests have high temperatures throughout the entire year.
    A home to such animals like the Tasmanian devil and the American alligator, this biome occurs in areas of slightly lower rainfall next to tropical rain forests. Found primarily in Central America, southern Asia (forests here are known as Monsoon Forests), and some portions of Australia, their well defined dry season limits plant growth and the activity of animals.
  • Climate & Location
    Climate
    Generally warm year-round alternating wet and dry season rich soils subject to erosion.
    Locations
    Parts of Africa, South and Central America, Mexico, India, Australia, and Tropical Islands
  • Characteristics
    Tropical Dry forests grow in places where rainfall is highly seasonal rather than year-round. During the dry season nearly all the trees drop their leaves to conserve water. A tree that sheds its leaves during a particular season each year is called deciduous
  • Agriculture
    Tropical Dry Forest has good soil to grow crops such as:
    sugar cane
    corn
    Beans
    Tropical Dry Forest have good soil for cattle to graze.
  • Tourism
    Hiking
    Camping
    Swimming in the river,
    Bird watching
    Fishing and Hunting
  • Exploits and Conservation
    Human Exploits
    Deforestation
    Hazardous pests introduced by humans
    Species Extinction
    Conservation
    More efficient agriculture on suitable farmland
    Efficient forestry practice including plantations
    Reserves to protect species and ecosystems.
