Average Temperature Rain forests belong to the tropical wet climate group. The temperature in a rain forest rarely gets higher than 93 °F (34 °C) or drops below 68 °F (20 °C. Average Precipitation Average humidity is between 77 and 88%; rainfall is often more than 100 inches a year. There is usually a brief season of less rain. In monsoonal areas, there is a real dry season.
Introduction Tropical rainforest, temperate coniferous and deciduous woodland forests are the three main categories of forest type. Tropical rainforests are considered a much richer species that the other two, and temperate vegetation is one that grows fastest. The rainforest ecosystem is very weak and easily unbalanced, making this type of forest more “permanently destroyed” than the other two. The importance of tropical rainforests lies within the fact that they are the earth’s richest source of life as they play a vital part in the earth’s natural cycles of soil, water and air through the process of photosynthesis. In this case study we will be looking closely at the tropical rainforest in the Amazonia region of South America.
Today London is the largest metropolitan area in the United Kingdom and the largest urban zone in the European Union by most measures. England's population is about 53 million, around 84% of the population of the United Kingdom, and is largely concentrated in London, the South East and conurbations in the Midlands, the North West, the North East and Yorkshire, which each developed as major industrial regions during the 19th century. Meadowlands and pastures are found beyond the major cities. CLIMATE: England has a temperate maritime climate: it is mild with temperatures not much lower than 0 °C (32 °F) in winter and not much higher than 32 °C (90 °F) in summer.  The weather is damp relatively frequently and is changeable.
It is home to the worlds largest rainforest and river, the Amazon; the highest waterfall, Angel Falls; the longest mountain range, the Andes Mountains; the driest place on the planet, the Atacama Desert; the highest capitol city, La Paz Bolivia; and the most southern city in the world, Puerto Toro, Chile. The landscape is a diverse plethora of vegetation that supplies many sources of food and medicines. It is also home to indigenous people and unknown tribes that still live in the Amazon Rainforest. History of the People and the Food. Before the Spanish explorers came to the Americas around the 16th century, there were existing thriving civilizations.
Give details about the sources, time scale, and types of change. The biggest change that is happening in Madagascar that is posing challenges to Lemurs in Madagascar is the deforestation of the rain forest. The reason this is a challenge is it disrupts the economic system, its home, and the food supply. The Tropical Rain Forest is the Biomes in Madagascar. There is no real 0domination of one particular species in the Rain Forest and the Trees are typical evergreen trees.
Pongo pygmaeus, found in Borneo, and Pongo abelii in Sumatra. The population of wild orangutans has been recently estimated at around 7,300 for Pongo abelii, and between 45,000 to 69,000 found in Borneo. Both species of orangutan are found to inhabit peat swamp forests, tropical heath forests, and mixed dipterocarp forests and are the largest arboreal animals on the planet spending close to 95% of their time in trees along the forest canopy. Populations of orangutans are seen to be directly related to the amount of food available in their environments with higher numbers in forests with greater amounts of fruit and vegetation. The diets of orangutans involve a variety of ripe fruit as well as leaves, bark, flowers, honey, insects, vines, and plant shoots.
e. both are fiercely competitive and cannot coexist. 1 18. The pioneering work of Nalini Nadkarni in rain forest ecology revealed that: a. epiphyte mats in some tropical forests contain nutrient quantities equal to the nutrient content of the canopy foliage. b. the epiphyte mass in temperate rain forests may be four times the mass of leaves on their host tree. c. in both temperate and tropical rain forests, trees obtain nutrients by extending roots into epiphyte mats.
The process to create the paper does not involve releasing harmful toxins like tree paper processing does. The largest benefit of using hemp as paper is the fact that hemp can harvest in just four months after being planted. Trees can take tens to hundreds of years to be ready for harvest. The fact that deforestation due to tree paper processing destroys the habitats for thousands of animals also must be taken into consideration and adds to the list of reasons why hemp needs to be grown in the U.S. In addition to the use of hemp as paper, an equally valuable and environmentally friendly use of hemp is as a source of
TABLE OF CONTENTS INTRODUCTION Location of the Equatorial Rainforest Equatorial forests are located right above the equator and have very hot temperatures. The major Equatorial Rainforests are found in South and Central America, West Africa and Eastern Asia. • South and Central America – Amazon Rainforest • West Africa – Congo Rainforest • Eastern Asia - South Eastern Asia Rainforest • The Amazon is the largest rainforest in the world. The Congo is the second and the South East Asia the third. See Diagram 1.
