In her earlier life, Baré had developed a tactic of dressing as a man to gain employment in the French Navy, which didn’t permit woman to join (or even be present on ships) at that time. Suitable for both teachers and students, Rainforest Explorer is comprised of a resource rich library which includes videos, fact sheets, pictures, clip art andactivitysheets. Animals such as wild pigs ( Sus scrofa), armadillos, and anteaters forage in the decomposing brush for these tasty insects, roots and tubers of the South American rainforest. Even larger predators, including leopards ( Panthera pardus), skulk in the darkness to surprise their prey. Smaller rodents, such as rats and lowland pacas (a type of striped rodent indigenous to Central and South America), hide from predators beneath the shallow roots of trees that dominate the canopy and emergent layer.

The Mbuti, a community indigenous to the Ituri rainforest in Central Africa, have traditionally been hunter-gatherers. Their diet consists of plants and animals from every layer of the rainforest. Ultimately, her greatest achievement was a significant role in the creation of the National Museum of Iraq, which holds the world’s largest collection of Mesopotamian antiquities. 4. Female Explorers – Nellie Bly (American, 1864-1922)Many biologists expect rainforests will lose 5-10% of their species each decade. Rampant deforestation could cause many important rainforest habitats to disappear completely within the next hundred years. Most rainforests are structured in four layers: emergent, canopy, understory, and forest floor. Each layer has unique characteristics based on differing levels of water, sunlight, and air circulation. While each layer is distinct, they exist in an interdependent system: processes and species in one layer influence those in another. Disguising herself as a man, visiting harems and embracing Middle Eastern culture and leading archaeological digs, Hester Stanhope was a British socialite and adventurer, born into a highly respected British political family, who cut her own path in life. Rainforests also provide us with many medicinal products. According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, 70% of plants useful in the treatment of cancer are found only in rainforests. Rainforest plants are also used in the creation of muscle relaxants, steroids, and insecticides. They are used to treat asthma, arthritis, malaria, heart disease, and pneumonia. The importance of rainforest species in public health is even more incredible considering that less than one percent of rainforest species have been analyzed for their medicinal value.

These geographic conditions help create areas of high rainfall. Temperate rainforests can be found on the coasts of the Pacific Northwest in North America, Chile, the United Kingdom, Norway, Japan, New Zealand, and southern Australia. made three trips to northern Africa to conduct field research among the nomads of the western Sahara region and eventually moved to Morocco.

She was the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic from east to west. Understory plants often produce flowers that are large and easy to see, such as Heliconia, native to the Americas and the South Pacific. Others have a strong smell, such as orchids. These features attract pollinators even in the understory’s low-light conditions.
