The daddy long leg can vary between being a nocturnal or diurnal species which in turn contributes to their various body colorations. They only have one pair of eyes with is situated in the middle of the head and is orientated to the side. They cannot make webs as they have no silk glands and also does not produce venom as it has no venom glands. They generally eat small insects or they can feed on fungi, various plant materials, dung or dead animals. They don’t have well developed vision, as their single pair of ... ... middle of paper ... ... provide the mites protection.
The minerals found in the rain forests of Brazil are estimated to value 1.6 trillion dollars, while the lumber that the rain forests can provide total 1.7 trillion dollars (“In the Forest” 1). Nutrients from decomposing organisms can be found throughout rain forests, including in soil and in trees. To continue destroying forests also destroys the important materials that they are providing to humans. The rain forests also provide important exports such as oil, nuts, and rubber. Brazilian nuts have become an important export and coffee has been South America’s main source of money.
The leaf-cutting ants have a very important role in the tropical forest. They create and manipulate the environment around them. They also can do major damage. The leaf-cutting or fungus-growing ants are distributed from northern Texas to central Argentina. These ants are injurious since they cut the green vegetation from trees, shrubs and crops, and carry it into the nest, where they cultivate fungi on it.
Nicaragua is one of these countries. Two main reasons why Baird’s tapir is endangered are habitat loss and been hunted for meat. In Nicaragua, Baird’s tapirs mostly live in rainforest located in Caribbean lowlands. Deforestation is the main concern for Baird’s tapir, as well as for many wild animals live in rainforest. In order to protect Baird’s tapirs, as well as many other wild animals that rely on the rainforest to survive, deforestation has to be stopped.
Working remotely reduces cost and effort of extensive sampling, and allows us to obtain landscape-wide measures of forest features . Remote sensing is therefore ideal for studying wide scale effects of disperser loss on forest structure and regeneration. A natural experiment in the Northern Mariana Islands allows us to study the effects of intense frugivore loss on forests. Bird populations on Guam have been decimated since the 1980s, after the accidental introduction of the predatory brown tree snake (Boiga irregularis) in the 1950s.
Endangered species that live in forests, such as bonobos, giant pandas, and Asian elephants, are especially at risk of extinction because of deforestation. When one certain species is wiped out of an area, it impacts the whole food chain in that ecosystem. This is known as the domino effect. If a certain plant is removed from an ecosystem, the insect that relied on that plant will die out from a lack of food. The snake that ate said insect will also have no food.
As most should know plants do not have legs. Thus they depend on rodents and natural weather changes to move their seed from one area to another. They do not bloom all year so their seeds cannot be spread year round. Diet The Emerald Green tree boa feeds on small rodents such as rats, lizards and small birds. The animal does not have a venomous bite and relies only on its strength.... ... middle of paper ... ...s mutualism due to gaining from the relationship and causing success in the plant’s life as well.
The chemicals kill the bacteria in their stomachs and without the bacteria; proboscis monkeys cannot eat other foods. Since proboscis monkeys have bloating problem, they cannot top up their diet with sweet succulent fruits and because of that, half of their diet is made up of non-sweet fruits (Sha et al., 2011). This type of diet is typical for colobine monkeys, non-sweet fruits, mixing young leaves and seeds. This is different compared to other primate with a simple stomach like orang-utans and
Basically every nutrient and food of this diet should not be processed and undergone any chemical or genetically modified. Based on the research of Dr. Frassetto, the Paleo diet mostly are lots of fruits and vegetable, some nuts and ... ... middle of paper ... ...the trace of nutrients, the results are that the contemporary Paleo diet contains 38% of protein, 29% of fat, 23% of carbohydrate by energy are now considering from current western values. This told that if this diet is a long-term diet, it will be not that good since the amount of carbohydrate is lower than fat. The fact is that carbohydrate is the long-term storage for energy in our body. Thus if the body is lack of carbohydrate, the body will get tired easily.
One fine example of a critically endangered animal is the Cotton-top Tamarin who is very close to becoming extinct due to the declining forest areas in South America, where the tamarin lives. Fortunately, there have been many projects that have been created in order to protect this majestic primate. One well-known conservation project is Proyecto Tití, or Project Tamarin in English, which is centered primarily in Colombia. This project, while not as popular as many others, has helped to protect the Cotton-top Tamarins, which are one of the most endangered primates in the world, by an immense amount and they continue to aid the tamarins and the local villagers of Colombia every single year. Explanation of Project Tamarin Project Tamarin is a unique conservation project which combines field research with educational and community programs, placed in Colombia.
