Rainforest Biome

In the rainforest biome, there are many trees and animals livings with their own species. With lots of unique characteristics, the rainforest always seems to be a place of mystery. Used in many films as a place of destruction and yet peaceful, such as in Tarzan or Avatar, rain forests are friendly for all types of organisms (whether they be plants, animals, etc.).

Organism in it's ecological niche

A wolf's ecological niche consists of the woodlands. They live amongst trees, plants, and other animals.

Mitochondrial Eve

Mitochondrial Eve is the term used to describe the origin from which all humans have come from. Whether it be through evolution or mixed breeding.




Hispanics (possibly Puerto Rico)

                                                                         Caucasians (whites)

As the same species, it has been possible for all of these humans to reproduce and create a new breed of humans. Even with different physical attributes, they have lots in common, therefore keeping most of the same traits. With skin color, height, and other physical distributions as factors, the mixing of these humans have made the very diverse world that we live in. 

It's not easy to predict the way humans will look 1,000 years from now, but what we do know is that blonde hair and light eyes will be the first attributes to go. With the wide spread of Asians and Hispanics, the probability of the majority of humans looking like that is extremely high.
