Vocabulary

- Because organisms in an ecosystem have different niches, many different species can exist together.- The different populations of a community interact with and depend on each other and with the nonliving parts in their ecosystem.

- A tropical rainforest has living parts (howler monkeys, orchids, poison arrow frogs, etc.) and nonliving parts (water, sunlight, soil, temperature, etc.) so it is an ecosystem.- Rain falls often and humidity is always high.- Tropical rain forests get about the same amount of sunlight every day, all year.- It's always warm in a tropical rain forest.- Tropical rain forests carry ot more photosynthesis per square kilometer than any other land ecosystem.- Tropical rain forests have poor soil.- More than 300 different species of trees live in an area of tropical rain forest about the size of two football fields.- Even though there might be a lot of different types of species in rain forests the size of each species population is usually small compared to other types of forests.

Notes

A howler monkey's habitat is high in the trees. Its niche is to search for and eat new leaves.

A squirrel monkey's habitat includes many different levels in the trees. Its niche is searching for and eating leaves, fruit, insects, spiders, and other small animals..
