Brazil Tropical Rainforest

The tropical rainforest climate also known as the equatorial climate. The average temperature yearround is 80 to 90 degrees Farenheit. Regions along the equator are warm, wet and have no seasons. All months have a precipitation value of at least 60mm. The annual rainfall is about 2500 to 4500mm.

The anaconda has several adapted traits that allow it to survive successfully in a tropical rainforest environment. One adaptation they have is the patterns on their body make it perfect for camouflage which helps them hide from predators. Also, the spotting on their body also helps them blend into muddy waters, specially when they want to catch a meal. They are most comfortable in water, and if it stays on land for an extended period of time, will become infested with ticks.

The Bengal Bamboo is very well adapted to the Tropical Rainforest because it is a moist environment with a lot of rainfall. It also reduces soil erosion. This plant also likes temperatures between 40 degrees Fahrenheit and 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Human ImpactOne of the biggest problems in the Rain Forest of Brazil is deforestation. Cutting trees in Quiandeua, Brazil for grazin and croplands is one of the many activities that loggers and cattle ranchers are doing to grab land just for money. Cutting trees at this fast pace is already having a strong impact on the forest climate. The Rain Forest produces lots of nitrogen and oxygen for the enviroment and the ecosystem around it and without it many animals, plants and humans will start dying. We all should be concerned about this because it will not only affect Brazil but the rest of the world mainly because it will disrupt the natural balance causing more global warming. Some of the solutions will be to educate people/farmers about the importance of the forest and that the goverment will implement some strict laws against deforestation.

We can find Tropical Rainforests in Africa, Asia, Australia, and South and Central America. However, the largest rainforest in the world is the Amazon rainforest in Brazil.
