Invasive Species
• Tropical Ash Tree. These trees are taller than
the native trees, ohia trees, and causing the
native trees to get less sun exposure. This
makes the ohia trees grow less, ultimately
reducing their population.
Animal Adaptations
• Camouflage- smaller animals in the tropical
rain forest have adapted with camouflage to
blend into their environment.
• Nocturnal animals- when the sun goes down,
these animals go and prey on other animals
because there is less competitions.
Common Plants
• Trees are the most prevalent plants in the
rainforest, making up at least 60% of the
plants in the rainforest. One of the largest tree
species is the big leaf mahogany.
• Temp: It rarely gets above 93 degrees F or
drops below 68 degrees F.
• Prec: An average of 50-260 inches of rainfall a
Abiotic Factors
Amount of water
Hurricanes (August – October)

Indicator Species
Ecological Services
• The Amazon forest makes as much as 50% of
its own rainfall.
• Rainforest help maintain balance by regulating
numerous natural processes, without rain
forests droughts would be more common.
• Rainforests regulate air quality while locking
away CO2 that would contribute to planetary
Economic Services
• Over 120 medicines have been derived from
rain forest.
• Beneficial foods found.
• Eco-tourism
• Global Locations
• Location, Location, Location
Symbiotic Reationships
• Mutualism- Harpy Eagles eat berries and
fruits The Seeds are spread for future berry
and fruit producing plants.
Plant Adaptations
• Bark- Thinner and smoother bark to prevent
vines from Climbing the trees.
• Drip Tips- Drip Tips on leaves allow the arge
amount of rain that falls to slide right off of
the leaves, preventing bacteria and fungal
