  • 1. UKE MASANGO-DIBO BEN EDDY SARAH GADBERRY MAX THORNTON (BENEDDY@YMAIL.COM) Tropical Rainforest
  • 2. Where is it? <ul><li>Tropical Rainforest is in the southernmost parts of North America </li></ul>
  • 3. Climatic conditions <ul><li>The rainfall is between 57.7 and 96.2 in. per year. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There is no dry season. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The temperature ranges from 68° F to 95° F, mostly getting colder at night. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>There is very little difference in temperature between months. </li></ul></ul>
  • 4. Dominant plants <ul><li>The dominant plant species of tropical rainforests are: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lianas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Palm trees </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tall evergreen trees </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mahogany </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Orchids </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ferns </li></ul></ul>
  • 5.  
  • 6. Plant adaptations <ul><li>There are three different layers of plant life: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Canopy (the top layer) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It contains giant trees that grow as tall as 75 m or more. This prevents much of the sunlight from reaching the ground. Vines are also found in the canopy. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Understory (the middle layer) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It is made up of vines, smaller trees, ferns, and palms. They generally receive very little sunlight because of the shade of the canopy. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The floor (the bottom layer) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>It is covered with wet leaves and leaf litter which decompose quickly making the soil very fertile. </li></ul></ul></ul>

  • 8. Plant adaptations <ul><li>With the great deal of rainfall, plants have adaptations that help them shed water off their leaves quickly. In order to absorb as much sunlight as possible on the dark understory, leaves of these plants are very large. Some trees grow large leaves at the lower canopy level and small leaves in the upper canopy. Many plants grow in the upper canopy on larger trees to get sunlight. </li></ul>

  • 12. Animal adaptations <ul><li>Toucan </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A specially adapted bill that helps them to eat food </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Feathers that help them to blend into the forest </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Poison Dart Frog </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Very small to prevent being eaten </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Skin that secretes poisons </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Sloth </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Limbs that allow them to climb easily </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Extremely slow meta </li></ul></ul>
