Tropical Ocean

By: Lyla, Donny, and Pete

Three places our biome is located around are Africa, Australia, and South America. The annual temperature range is 72-82 degrees farenheit. The annual precipitation is about 115 inches per year. The latitude range is from 30 degrees degrees south. These are the seasonal changes: there is a wet season and a dry season. Here are some possible extreme weather events: hurricanes and typhoons.

The plants and facts are: 1. plankton. There are two types of plankton animal and plant. 2. kelp. Kelp are very long seaweed. They usually grow between 40-200 feet below the surface of the ocean. 3. caulerpa. Caulerpa is an attractive seaweed with a feather-like pattern that grows very well in artificial aquarium conditions.

Here are our animals and facts: 1. the brown booby bird. The brown booby's diet is fish. It grows from 25-29 inches long. The range of places it lives are the tropical and Atlantic oceans. 2. the smooth hammerhead shark. The smooth hammerhead's diet is fish and rays. It lives in coastal and inshore waters. 3. the finless porpoise. The finless porpoise's diet is mollusks. It grows from 1.4-1.8 meters (4 1/2-6 feet) long. One subpopulation in the Yangtze River is endangered. Its habitat is coasts, estuaries, and rivers. It lives in the Yangtze River, the Eastern China Sea, Pakistan to Borneo and Korea, and East and Southeast Asia.

The natural resources found in our biome are: minerals, vegetation, fish, and all different types of rocks.

These are our threats and how to save our biome: 1. litter. We can stop this problem by not throwing garbage in the water. 2. pollution. We can solve this problem by not using motorboats powered by gas, but instead using non gas powered boats.

My additional information (abiotic factors) are: sand, salt, water, and calcium.

This is the end, so now you learned about the tropical oceans biome.
