Biotic Factors

Jaguars, Monkeys, Sloths, Toucans, Red Eye Tree Frogs, and I so much more! There are some plants that are in the forest too not just animals because without the plants the animals wouldn't be able to breath. Some of these are the: Orchid, Rubber Tree and a lot more. These plants are from www.ecorazzi.com.

Abiotic Factors

Dirt( clay ), Rocks, Water( 80 to 100in of rain ), Air( humid ), Clouds

Caring Capacity-  largest number of individuals of one species that an environment can support. Resources- food, water, shelter, and space.

If the rainforest floods the jaguars will decrease because the food will all be gone or it will be in the rivers.

Limiting Factors- any factor or condition that limits the growth of a population or an ecosystem. EX: predators, weather conditions, etc.

Birds eat berries and if it floods then the birds wont be able to eat the food.

Energy Role

Producer: A thing that produces its own food (rubber tree)

Producers are needed everywhere because a lot of the animals need them to survive and us humans need it to breath.

Consumers: Is a animal that eats plants or other animals (jaguars, monkeys, red eye tree frog)

Decomposers: An animal that eats dead animals (mushroom)

Food Webs/Food Chains

Food webs are more realistic because they give you more than one food chain in the ecosystem.

If the butterfly gets taken out then the bird will have nothing to eat and will die out

TROPHIC LEVELS: Using a pyramid is better because it would get smaller and smaller than a cube because a cube you would get the same amount.

PHOTOSYNTHESIS:

Water: H2O

Glucose: C6H12O6

Oxygen: O2

Carbon Dioxide: CO2

Photosynthesis: CO2 + H2O ----------> C6H12O6 + O2

The things for photosynthesis are  carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight. It produces glucose and oxygen.

In the cells photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplasts.

Radient energy transforms into chemical energy.

Tropisms

Tropism is turning or bending movement of an organism toward or away from an external stimulus, such as light, heat, or gravity. Plants are an example: Phototropism, Geotropism, Thigmotropism.

These tropisms help the plants survive because it gets them the sunlight and water they need.

ROLE OF DECOMPOSERS

They help my ecosystem because they give it new soil. If there are no decomposers they there would be no fresh soil for the plants.

Some decomposers in my ecosystem: Mushrooms, worms, fungi.

Adaptation

The organisms adapt to the enviorment like monkeys because they have to learn to climb the trees.

If you take a monkey out to where there are no trees they would not know what to do. If you put a venus fly trap they would have to eat different bugs than what they are used to eating.

Natural Selection

The process where by organisms better adapted to their environment tend to survive the produce more offspring. It is important because the animals or plants wont.

A leopard is a good example because they will die out if there is no more food and if that change is made then they will be gone.

What might happen if the amount of rain in the forest abruptly decreased?

I agree with this because you have a lot of pics to support your facts. 👏

I recommend adding some more abiotic factors
