LEARN ABOUT THE AMAZON RAINFOREST THIS IS MY FINNAL PRODUCT. My story is going to be about what is happening in the Amazon rainforest and what is there to learn. What is a rainforest? A rainforest is a place for animals and plants to live and also the rainforest produces 20% of oxygen that we breathe.


Where is the rainforest? South America Brazil, French, Peru, vienuzla, Ecuador FrenchGuianna, Guyana, Suriname, Columbia. What is the Physical Feature? Southwest and northwest longitude 45- 75 west 0- 15 latitude it is hot and humid the average temperature is 79 degrees Fahrenheit for the entire year. What is the layers and description? The tallest trees are the emergent trees towering as much as 200 feet above the forest floor with trunks that measure up to 16 feet around. Most of these trees are broad leaved hardwood evergreens. Canopy layer this is the primary layer of the rainforest and forms a roof over the two remaining layers. Most canopy trees have Smooth, oval leaves that comes to a point. It`s


A maze of leaves and branches many animals live in this area has a since of food that is Abundant those animals include snakes, toucans, and tree frogs. Understory layer little sunshine reaches this area so the plants have to grow larger leaves For each the sunlight. The plants in this area seldom grow to live here including jaguars red eyed tree frogs leopards. There is a large concentration of insects here. Forest floor it`s very dark down here almost No plants grow in this area as a result. Since hardly any sun reaches the forest floor things begin to decay quickly a leaf that might take One year to decompose in a regular climate disappear in 6 weeks giant ant eaters live in this layer.


Golden lion tamarind facts there adaptation is they are related to the marmosets and live in swampy coastal rainforest. Predators are large boa constrictors and also tribes hunt the golden lion tamarind and eat it. Bromeliads and facts bromeliads are related to the pineapple family. Their thick waxy leaves Form a bowl shape in the centre for catching Rain water some bromeliads can hold several gallons of water and are miniature ecosystem in themselves providing homes for several creatures including frogs and their tadpole’s salamander’s snail’s beetles and mosquitoes larvae those that die decompose into nutrients.


My tribe that I researched on was called the Yanomami tribe. In their tribe a family member goes out and hunts for food to support the family some hunt for snakes, spider monkeys, gorilla, chimpanzees and other animals that the yanomami tribe eat. Their culture is like Indians. Close that they were little girls were skirts boys wore shorts but they all don’t wear shoes wile ther hunting that’s all the information for the yanomami tribe. Ladies and gentlemen listen up know I have knew because the rainforest been telling me that yaw have been down their trees so I told them that I will handle this right now so please stop cutting down there trees if you don’t know why you shouldn’t cut down the trees because the rainforest helps us breathe by the oxygen that they give so if you cut down all the trees animals, plants, tribes they would start to dyeing


so lumber people please stay away from the rainforest just not one rainforest all the rain forested. Mongabay.com Pilotguides.com Opposing news.com Worldbook.com Discoveryeducation.com Wise owl.com Alantlazoo.com Junglephotos.com
