Katherine chen extra credit presentation-1

  1. 1. K A T H E R I N E C H E NEnvironment Ecology
  2. 2. Philippines Archipelago of 7,107 islands Known as the country with the 5th longest coastline in the world Bordered by the Philippine sea to the east, South China Sea to the west andwith the Celebes Sea to the North. Mountainous islands mainly consist of tropical rain forests
  3. 3. Climate Tropical Maritime Climate Three seasons: tag-init (hot dry)- Happens around March – May tag-ulan (rainy)- Happens around June – November tag-lamig (cool dry) – Happens around December- February
  4. 4. Climates of the Philippines
  5. 5. Wildlife and Environment Around 1,100 land vertebrae species 100 mammals & 170 bird species found only in the Philippines Endemic species: The Tamaraw of Mindoro The Visayan Spotted Deer Philippine Mouse Deer Visayan Warty Pig Philippine Flying Lemur Lacks large predators, except: Snakes – Pythons, cobras, saltwater crocodiles and prey birds
  6. 6. Birds Have large beaks to loose more heat Can Afford to have large beaks than birds intemperate regions Different sized beaks allow for different adaptationsaccording to use. Toucan- cutting up pieces of fruits and nuts Philippine Eagle- hooked beaks to tear small prey apart
  7. 7. Environmental Relationship
  8. 8. Factors: Abiotic and Biotic
  9. 9. Abiotic Factor Warm Sunlight- photosynthesis Light is the main source of energy Most of he sunlight is absorbed by the upper canopy Photosynthesis- plants uses chlorophyll to change energy from sunlight into chemical energy Water- affects living animals, plants Greater than 80 inches of rain each year Transpiration- Loss of water through parts of the plant (leaves, stems, roots) Climate Control: 20-34 degrees Celsius Precipitation- The correct amount of rain Temperature and Soil Soil is shallow and thin- few nutrients and soluble minerals Nutrients are largely found in roots and leaves of living plants and decomposing vegetation on theforest floor
  10. 10. Water
  11. 11. Temperature and Soil
  12. 12. Transpiration
  13. 13. Temperature & Climate Normal range is 93-68 degrees High constant temperature increases the rate ofevaporation and keeps humidity high Warm temperatures – quick growth Animals
  14. 14. Biotic Factors Factors that is living in a biome (plant or animal) Producers- uses photosynthesis to create it’s ownfood Consumers Primary- consumes plants Secondary- consumes meat
  15. 15. Biotic Factors
