        Journey Into Amazonia | Broom Forest: A Tall Trees Simulation

        The shallow, nutrient-poor nature of the soil in the Amazon basin has caused many trees to have rapid growth as they seek sunlight, and also develop interesting support strategies to hold the top-heavy trees without using taproots. By using a model, students will construct support structures similar to those used by the tall Amazon trees. Students will understand the limitations of the support structures and how environmental damage may affect the trees.
