School Workshop: Rainforest Ecology and Adaptation

A workshop exploring the ecology of the rainforest, the challenges to life there and how plants have evolved adaptations to thrive.

 

Workshop overview

Rainforests are complex and biodiverse ecosystems which play a significant role in regulating climate across the globe. Life here must cope with extreme abiotic and biotic conditions. This session looks into the ecology of the rainforest, the challenges to life here and how plants have evolved adaptations to thrive. It also touches on some of the human pressures on these precious ecosystems and how that influences the ecology.

What happens in the workshop

This classroom-based session links strongly with Biology and Geography A level specifications. We encourage the students to ask questions and build a running dialogue with us throughout the interactive session. After this there is an optional activity linked to the content that the students can complete in our Biomes.
