Caty bianca rainforest. EDLC 3rd. year

  1. 1. By Catalina Ruiz & Bianca Manera
  2. 2. MOST IMPORTANT CHARACTERISTICS Rainforests in the tropics are places where it rains every day. These areas are covered with thick, lush forests called tropical forest
  3. 3. TEMPERATURE AND RAINFALL Temperature: hot and wet during all the year. It rains 4,000 mm a year. The hot climate makes the water evaporate quickly. Inside the rainforest it is dark and damp.
  4. 4. Rainforest people The people who live here survive by hunting animals and collecting plants.
  5. 5. THE PEOPLE  They have moved to these areas for commercial reasons. They chop down trees and burn them in order to clear land.  Many trees have disappeared and this affects the natural habitat, plants and animals died because of that.
  6. 6. Areas which have been chopped down and burnt
  7. 7. ANIMALS  Around 40% to 75% of all biotic species are in the rainforest. It has been estimated that there may be many millions of species of plants, insects that haven’t been discovered yet.  Many animals live in branches of trees, such as monkeys. Due to the destruction of their habitats some animals and plants have died out.
  8. 8. Rare Species
  9. 9. THE IMPACT IN THE WORLD  Rainforests are also responsible for 28% of the world’s oxygen through carbon dioxide and consuming it through respiration.  The disappearance of so many trees affects the balance of gasses in the atmosphere. This may cause an increase of global warming.
  10. 10. Conclusion To finish with our presentation we want to point out that we have to protect these areas because they are the “lungs” of our planet. Trees let out oxygen that is fundamental for all living creatures.
