Transcript of "Tropical rainforest project "

  1. 1. TROPICAL RAINFOREST Yoanna Rodriguez
  2. 2. LOCATION Tropical rainforests are located in a band around the equator . This 3,000 mile wide band is called the ‘’tropics”.
  3. 3. CLIMATE Their average temperature reaches up to 24-30c.It is always warm , and there is no real seasons.
  4. 4. RAINFALL The tropical rain forest is very humid because of all the rainfall it gets . It receives about 200-450cm of rain per year. That is about 8 to 14 feet of rain.
  5. 5. SOIL The soil in a tropical rainforest is very low in nutrients . It is also very thin.
  6. 6. PLANTS The tropical rainforest is the most biologically diverse biome . It has many plants like Bengal Bamboo , coconut tree , strangler figs , Lianas , Epiphytes , Bromeliads , boigainvillea , etc.
  7. 7. ANIMALS There is a wide variety of animals that adapt to their surroundings in many ways. Most of the animals camouflage to their environment like the Poison Arrow frog , 2-toed sloth , Orangutan , spider monkey , cicada , bullet ant , walking stick , bird eating snake , whip tail lizard , chestnut- mandibled toucan , etc.
  8. 8. LEVELS OF RAINFOREST There are 4 layers of the Tropical Rain forest. #1The emergent layer-The tallest trees are the emergents , towering as much as 200 feet above the forest floor with trunks that measure up to 16 feet around. #2The canopy layer-This is the primary layer of the forest and forms a roof over the 2 remaining layers. #3Understory layer- little sunshine reaches this area so the plants have to grow larger leaves to reach the sunlight. #4Forest floor-Its very dark down here . Almost no plants grow in this area .
