Rainforest ecosystem

Rainforest food web

In my web, the monkey is the primary, bat is secondary, jaguar is tertiary, banana tree, berries, flowers are producers, and saprophytes are decomposers.

Symbiotic relationships

Mutualism: leaf cutter ants feed and protect tree branches while the tree returns the favor.

Parasitism: strangler figs grow on trees taking nutrients and killing it.

Commensalism: bromeliads grow on trees to get sunlight which does not damage the tree.

Several ways humans impact this environment

1. Cutting down trees takes homes from species

2. Hunting and fishing might cause a decrease is population

3. leaving trash and bottles may be consumed by animals which might cause death

4. Bringing and taking animal in and out of this ecosystem
