Whenever the community has a green appreciation or conservation event, be a part of it. Planting trees is an easy way to start and is very beneficial to the Earth as a whole. There are ways to help, getting involved is the first step (Savedge 1). Rainforests are Earth’s most intriguing and important biome due to its species’ diversity, the many benefits it yields, and the unfortunate degradation that has been thrust upon it. While being home to the most complex variety of both plants and animals, the rainforest also houses imperative products needed for everyday life including food and medicine.
That’s why they are called rain forest, because they receive a lot of rain fall each year. Why do people need to protect our rain forest? Rain forest should be protected because they provide an enormous benefit to human kind. It is home to fifty-million Indigenous people. Also is a habitat for over a thousand species of plants and animals and birds.
Rain forest biome is very complex. It includes a myriad of different species of plants and animals that are all adapted to rain, and lots of it. There are different levels of plants in the rain forests. The highest are the tall trees that often, particularly in tropical rain forests, form a closed canopy. On the next level are vines, orchids and epiphytes that grow high up in trees to reach more sunlight.
Chimps are smart and have figured out what plants help treat diseases. About one half of all animal species living in Africa find their home in the rain forest. Chimpanzees have to share their habitat with all these other animals. Luckily chimps adapt to changing conditions very quickly, so they can live in multiple climates while other animals cannot. Chimpanzees have opposable thumbs and strong arms that help them move around and get to different habitats.
Most of us know what rainforests are, and how they can benefit us. But, only few of us know what rainforest do, and how they are most important to Earth. There are two types of rainforests; tropical and temperate rainforest. Tropical rainforest are known mostly for its rich evergreen vegetation. Also, being a home for over 50 percent of the Earth’s living species.
This rainforest has a great variety of plants and animals. 1/5 of the world’s plants and 1/10 of all mammal species are found there. Africa: Central Africa has the world’s second largest rainforest. In the southeast, in the large island of Madagascar, the land was once intensively forested, but sorrowfully much of it has vanished. The island of Madagascar is home to many unique plants and animals not found anywhere
To determine the value of a forest, one must ask oneself the question “How does a forest affect you?” Forests affect us in ways of aesthetics, monetary gains, product supplement and any other utilization that proves beneficial. This is true of both tropical and temperate forests. Tropical rain forests Tropical rain forests or evergreen rain forests are located predominantly around the equator. They are found in very humid lowland climates such as the western areas of the Amazon, the western side of Africa that is centralized at the equator and most of Indo-Malaysia. Evergreen rain forests are found in just about every area that does not exhibit an annual dry season.
In a rainforest there can be low altitude since the forest is close to sea level. Little people know that a rainforest provides 40% of earths oxygen. A rainforest has a variety of things such as plants, soils, animals, and microorganisms. Plants that are found in the forest are coconut trees, bamboo trees, fig trees, durian trees, jambu trees, avocado trees, and banana trees. Trees in the rainforest are about 70% of plants.the trees are very important and the trees actually give us almost a quarter of the medicine we us today.
The Role of Human Activity in Modifying Characteristics of a Biome A biome is a large scale or global ecosystem where biotic and abiotic elements interact with eachother producing a stable system that is in equilibrium. An example of this is the hot, wet equatorial climate where tropical rainforest is the dominant vegetation. Here the biotic elements such as the trees and animals for example sloths interact with the abiotic elements such as the poor soils and hot climate. The rainforest is millions of years old and remained undisrupted and in equilibrium for much of this time. However, as people exploit the rainforests resources, in particular its valuable trees, the equilibrium is changing.
As a matter of fact, rain forests support 90,000 of the 250,000 identifies plant species. A tropical rain forest has three layers: the canopy (treetops), the understory (young trees, ferns, shrubs), and the forest floor. Rain forests have been known as the "womb of life" (1) because they are home to so many species. Temperate (much younger, and more full of nutrients, located along Canada and the United States, among others) and sub-tropical rain forests also contain many ranges of animals (monkeys, birds, snakes, jaguars), however they are not as different. Regardless, the rain forests possess an array of foliage and fauna.
