Helping Brazil The tropical rainforests of South America, Africa, Asia and the north of Australia are all distributed evenly between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn. The Equator run through some of these rainforests and is also close to some of them. The map below illustrates all the rainforests in the world. The tropical rainforests of the world are all global ecosystems. An ecosystem is the link between plants and animals and the habitats in which they live in, so this is why we call tropical rainforests ecosystems because they link the animal life with the plant life. Another word for global ecosystems is biomes. [IMAGE] Map illustrating the biomes of the world An example of a biome that I will be referring to is the Amazon rainforest. This tropical rainforest is one of the largest tropical rainforest in the world and is home to 10 per cent of all known plant and animal species. To describe the rainforest in briefer terms, we can say that it is a type of system’; it has four main parts, which classify it as a system. The rainforest has an Input - material or energy moving into the system. An Output - material or energy leaving the system. Stores - places where material or energy is kept and Flows - movement of materials or energy between the stores. All these four parts are vital to the system and if one part of the system is taken away, then the whole system will fail to proceed and will stop. There are many natural chains and cycles, which take place in all rainforests, such as, the food chain, the nutri... ... middle of paper ... ...ther than the trucks, this will cause less damage to the rainforest and will take less time. Lastly, by introducing a rainforest university, Brazil can educate its people on how to take part in sustainable development. This can then keep the Brazilian population well informed on sustainable development. Overall, these techniques are much more sustainable and effective towards the rainforest and its ecosystem. These ideas will also not interfere and disturb with the water and nutrient cycle because, unlike the techniques that Brazil is using now in the rainforest, not as much damage is being done with the ideas that I have listed. Finally, all of these sustainable ways to provide Brazil with money will help Brazil pay of debts and it will help the countries people to live a better quality of life.
