My food web

In my rainforest food web, the producers would be the orchids, seeds, bananas, and bamboo. The primary consumers are the macaws, monkeys, and grasshoppers. The secondary consumers are the fruit bats, sloths, and monkeys. The tertiary consumers are the Python and Jaguar. And the decomposes would be mycorrhizal or fungi.

The symbiotic relationships

There are 3 types of symbiotic relationships. They are called: Mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism. Mutualism means both organisms are benefited. Commensalism means one organism is benefited and the other gets no benefit and no harm. Parasitism means one organism benefits from the host. For example, in the rainforest, a ticks symbiotic relationship would be parasitism because it feeds off of its host.

negative and positive impacts humans have on rainforest biomes

As the population grows, the need for land and agriculture increases. Each year, over 90,000 sq. miles of the rainforests get harvested for humans. This act is called "deforestation". Deforestation has become a worry because of the release of carbon from the machinery and vegetation. Some people believe this deforestation increases the effects of global warming and is transforming the rainforest climate. Approximately, 137 species is lost each day as a result of deforestation. This includes the species of plants, animals, and insects. Positive impacts humans could have on rainforests would be humans right to conserve their land and ecosystem.
