Title: Daintree


1

Daintree

2
Map of the daintree
  • The Daintree Rain forest is located on the coast
    of Queensland.

3
PLANTS
  • There are plant varieties in the Daintree such
    as Idiot Fruit, Blue Quandons, Burrawang Palm and
    Wild Ginger.

4
Animals
  • There are millions of animals in the Daintree
    some of these are estuarine crocodile and
    cassowary.There are also snakes, wild pigs and
    birds.

5
Layers
  • There are layers in the Daintree such us Emergent
    layer, Canopy layer, Under story, Shrub layer and
    the forest floor.

6
Emergent Layer
  • The emergent layer is the homes of birds and
    more animals.The emergent layer gets 100 percent
    of sun light and they are the largest trees in
    the Daintree. .

7
Canopy layer
  • The canopy layer gets 2 to 25 percent of
    sunlight.

8
Under story layer
  • The under story layer gets between 2 or 15
    percent of sun light.

9
Shrub Layer
  • The shrub layer attracts lizards and insects.

10
Forest Floor
  • The forest floor is where all the insects.

11
soil
  • Almost no nutrients reach the forest soil and it
    is consequently poor.   Removal of the trees
    allows the soil to dry out and the little humus
    that exists.

12
TOURISM
  • The Daintree is a great place for tourism if
    they tear down the Daintree Queensland will lose
    a lot of money.

13
RAINFALL and TEMPERATURE
  • The Daintree rainforest receives 368 milliliters
    of rain every year.
  • The temperature ranges from 16C - 41C

14
Recamendation
I believe the Daintree should be saved if you
still build a hotel over the Daintree many
animal lives and homes will be destroyed and
also the plants and trees.
