The Amazon Rainforest

The Amazon Rainforest

The biome that I have chosen is the rainforest and the jungle. The particular area I have chosen is the Amazon Rain Forest. It is located in the following countries: Brazil, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Guyana, and Suriname. It includes the second longest river in the world the Amazon River. It is also the largest contiguous rainforest in the world. The largest part of the Amazon Rain forest is located in Brazil; it covers about 60% of the country. Some of the things that I researched about were how the biotic and abiotic factors in the ecosystem interact, where is the energy that powers the ecosystem coming from, what adaptations do the organisms have that allow them to survive in the ecosystem, and how would this ecosystem change if one abiotic or biotic factor changed? I will answer these in my paper about the Amazon Rainforest.

How do the biotic and abiotic factors interact in the rain forest? One example of this is a monkey and a tree. The monkeys interact with the trees by most of the time monkeys are living in the trees. They swing from tree to tree trying to get food or to get away from predators. Another example of this water or rain and the plants in this ecosystem. It's very simple how they react it rains on the plants and it gives them the strength to grow. It goes up to the roots and then into the plants to quench its thirst. Without water plants would dry up and die.

Another question that most people would wonder about is where the energy that powers the Amazon rainforest is and what pathway does it take? Well I think that I will show you in a picture for this one.

I will explain my picture. The energy starts from the sun and goes into plants and grasses, it then goes in to animals that eat the plants and then it either goes into animals or things that the other animals eat. If they do not eat anything than that energy if there is any left it just disappears not to be found again.

What adaptations do...
