FC: Ecosystems: Forests By: Daria and Cody
1: The forest is a place of wonder, full of natural surprises. Aside from its beauty, the forest is essential to Earth's ecosystem. Trees and plants filter out the carbon dioxide in the air, making it breathable for humans.
2: The forest is a place of great wonder. Many animals call it their home. Forests cover about 30% of all land area, and vary in life.
4: Forests are unique and special. Like every other ecosystem, they also have abiotic and biotic interactions. For instance, trees provides a home for animals like birds and chipmunks, while streams give hydration to many animals.
5: The forest is an abundance of wildlife, as well as dangerous. It contains many predator/prey reactions.
7: Animal life is a large part of forest life. These pictures are examples of animals that would die in the ocean, but live a comfortable life in the forest.
8: The forest is made of mainly trees. The trees provide homes for woodland creatures, bark for claws, and keeps the air clean. The forest has many different species f trees, and they are, in fact, a population.
10: Deforestation is a major problem. People cut down trees for many reasons. One is to make homes. Another is to make lumber. Simple, everyday items, like paper and cardboard, destroy trees and leave animals nowhere to build their homes.
11: Without tress filtering the air, more carbon dioxide is left in the atmosphere, while oxygen is still being constantly breathed in.
12: Deforestation is a serious problem, but can be prevented if we limit tree destruction and find other materials to make our homes and common paper products.
