Ans. Hot and humid climate supports an enormous number and a variety of animals in rainforest.
Ans. The maximum temperature of the day occurs generally in the afternoon while the minimum temperature occurs in the early morning.
Ans. Bird Toucan possesses a long, large beak. This helps a toucan to reach the fruits on branches which are otherwise too weak to support its weight.
Ans. The day-to-day condition of the atmosphere at a place with respect to the temperature, humidity, rainfall, wind-speed, etc., is called the weather at that place.
Ans. Examples of some countries where the tropical rainforests are found are India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brazil, Republic of Congo, Kenya, Uganda, and Nigeria.
Ans. The daily weather report carries information about the temperature, humidity and rainfall during the past 24 hours. It also predicts the weather for the day.
Ans. Some well-known countries that belong to the Polar Regions are Canada, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Alaska in U.S.A. and Siberian region of Russia.
Ans. The weather reports are prepared by the Meteorological Department of the Government. This department collects data on temperature, wind, etc., and makes the weather prediction.
Ans. Rain gauge is an instrument used to measure the amount of rainfall over a set period of time. It is basically a measuring cylinder with a funnel on top to collect rainwater.
Ans. Some adaptations of animals living in the tropical rainforests include living on the trees, development of strong tails, long and large beaks, bright colours, sharp patterns, loud voice, diet of fruits, sensitive hearing, sharp eyesight, thick skin, ability to camouflage in order to protect themselves from predators, etc.
Ans. It seems that these birds have a built–in sense of direction and know in which direction to travel. Some birds probably use landmarks to guide them. Many birds may be guided by the sun during the day and stars at night. There is some evidence that birds may use the magnetic field of the earth to find direction.
Ans. Birds must remain warm to survive. So, they migrate to warmer regions when winter sets in and they come back after the winter is over. Example: Siberian cranes migrate from Siberia to places like Bharatpur in Rajasthan and Sultanpur in Haryana, and some wetlands of north east and some other parts of India.
Ans. No, all the seven days will not have the same maximum and minimum temperatures, humidity and rainfall. The maximum and minimum temperatures recorded may be the same for some of the days. However, all the parameters are not the same on any two days. Over a week there may be considerable variation.
