Biotic factors-animals(exotic birds, monkeys, snakes, all kinds of crittrs) plants, sloths, bamboo trees and anteaters
Abiotic factors- soil, water, light, rocks and climate
Limiting factors for the animals are water because it can get dry and there can be a drought. Sunlight is another limiting factor; this is due to a very dense canopy, sunlight is blocked from the rainforest
Energy Roles Solar energy/climate- hot and humid
Changes in population have increased through out the years from humans and animals
Photosynthesis for rainforest
The rainforest has 3 tropisms including phototropism, chemotropism and thigmotropism. Phototropism is when plants produce a light sensing hormone. Chemotropism is when roots grow away from harmful acid type soils. Thigmotropism is common; it is when the vine will bend towards whatever it is touching, coiling the cells around the object.
A decomposer is a device or installation that is used to break a chemical substance. For example, saprophytes are decomposers for the rainforest. They are organisms competing with the heavy rainfall which constantly washes away nutrients.
Adaptations- with warm temperatures, water and food support thousands of species. They have crafty camouflage so they can blend into trees and dirt. Creature of the night is when the sun goes down, some animals sleep; others bright eyed and lookout for food.
