To begin, climate plays a major role in the creation and maintenance of soil. Firstly, wind can blow soil to a different area. In the 1930s, there was a drought in the prairies and topsoil blew away. The soil was dry and all the vegetation died, so it was light and the wind blew the topsoil away, exposing the subsoil. This greatly reduced the amount of topsoil in the prairies. Secondly, rain supports growth of plants, creating more humus from plant decay. In the west coast forest vegetation region, there is a lot of precipitation, which supports plant growth. The large amounts of precipitation in the west coast of canada supports the plant growth. After the plants grow, they eventually die and decay, turning into humus. This fertilizes the
It all started when I decided to go to the rainforest to explore new animal species. My helicopter had a random malfunction and fell into into the middle of nowhere, leaving me stranded in the middle of the rainforest. My only supplies that I could find was a single flare shot, emergency food rations and some rope. My first concern is finding water. I grabbed my supplies and started heading down a trail of mud and flattened grass. After about an hour of walking the sun started to set. I noticed a large tree that had huge wide leafs. I could use these leaves and sticks to form a temporary place to sleep. I started to gather up sticks to shape sort of a tipi. Then I laid the large leaves on the top and sides, and put one inside the fort to lay
The story Ferngully is a fairy tale that teaches us the moral lesson of the importance of protecting wildlife. The story is about a fairy named Crysta that lives in a rainforest named Ferngully. Crysta saves Zak, a human logger, which she shrinks to save his life from a falling tree. She does not know how to return him back to normal. As time goes on, Zak starts to have feelings for Crysta. More humans come to destroy the rainforest but Zak doesn’t tell Crysta that he was one of the human destroyers’. Crysta’s fairy community starts a battle against the human loggers and they eventually stop the machines. Crysta gives Zak a seed as a reminder to remember all the wrongdoing that the deforestation and pollution caused before she returns him back to normal size.
The Amazon Rainforest is home to a vast amount of biological diversity as well as many important ecological communities making it an important region to conserve and protect from damaging, extractive practices (Bowles 1998). However, many people, including myself, rely on this region for more than its environmental benefits. I use the forest for mining gold, a hugely important part of our country’s economy and future (Cremers 2013). I understand the importance of preservation but the government needs to set aside some land for miners like myself to use legally as well as make it easier for miners to go about their work in efficient, productive ways.
The depletion of tropical rainforests by third world countries, as well as by American industry, has been a growing area of concern for many environmental organizations. Animal rights activists are livid at the frightening rate in which species are becoming extinct in these regions. Conservationists argue that the foliage is disappearing at rates that replanting programs will never be able to compete with. Environmentalists and Meteorologists fear that the elimination of enormous quantities of acreage will result in a long list of problems, including global warming, abnormal precipitation patterns, and unpredictable weather systems, just to
From the outside, Ecuador looks like a prosperous country. Its top exports include shrimp and oil, and it is the number one producer of bananas in the world. If you walked into a local market, you would be overcome with the variety of foods, colors, and smells. According to Britannica, Ecuador is also among the most diverse countries in the world, being one of nine countries to house the Amazonian Rainforest, as well as two deserts and four mountain ranges. While this country, 400 square miles smaller than the U.S. state of Nevada, seems to face little difficulty, it is the most food insecure and fifth most corrupt country in South America according to the Food Security Index and Transparency Intl. surveys in 2015. The problem lies buried six
Students will work in groups to read about and research the rainforest during a habitat unit. They will read a magazine article that teaches about the animals and characteristics of the rainforest. The article will also discuss the deconstruction of the rainforest and why these rainforests are important to take care of. Students will read each section of the article and highlight the key words that they believe are important to each section. Students will then record these key words on their main idea graphic organizer which they will go back to after reading the whole article. After reading the whole article the students will use the highlighted key words and the text to develop a main idea statement to record. Students will then record three important facts from each section and record these on sticky notes. Students will transfer these sticky notes onto their group’s main idea graphic organizer where these will serve as the supporting details. The group’s graphic organizer will serve as a scaffold for the four squares foldable each student will make. This four square foldable will eventually be used by students to help guide them throughout their expository writing piece on

The ecosystem of a tropical rainforest is comprised of different functions and structures. There are abiotic and biotic components that make up the ecosystem along with the biogeochemical cycle. There will be an investigated look on 1 natural and 1 human cause of disturbance to the tropical rainforest ecosystem and how sustainability can be applied and humans can act as good stewards to support in the reclamation efforts of the tropical rainforest.
Rainforests have been declining rapidly over the last few decades. There are various factors responsible for this decline, resulting in serious impacts on the environment and the economy. Critically discuss the causes of deforestation and solutions to it.
The Amazon is the largest rainforest in the world it covers 6.7 million square kilometers which are larger than the area of Europe (About, 1). It extends from the low slopes of the Andes to the Atlantic coast of Brazil and supplies 20% of the world’s oxygen (Why is, 1). It is home to thousands of species of flora and fauna and hosts indigenous tribes who rely on the land to survive. In recent years, with the development of science and technology, the rapid growth of standards of living across the world the more resources are needed at an alarming rate to keep up with demand. Industrialization has brought the world countless luxuries which many would argue are modern necessities. In order to meet the needs of others; in Brazil, there is currently a financial crisis plaguing the country and is faced with the moral dilemma to provide employment opportunities for millions or protect their ecosystems which are vital for the health of the Earth. Today, the Amazon rainforest faces various problems such as deforestation, extinction of flora and fauna, desertification, and the interruption of indigenous tribes.
