3 Name: Class: Fieldwork At Birmingham Botanical Gardens
4 The Value of Plants Cultural Recognition of plants in our lives reflected through religion, festivals and storytelling. Life Support Plants provide oxygen, protect soils and regulate water cycles in all environments from dry desert to wetlands. Habitat Plants can provide living spaces for many species of animals as well as other plants. Decorative Beautiful plants enhance our lives. Food Plants provide many different foods for humans as well as for other animals. Raw Materials Plants provide us with industrial /manufacturing materials and chemicals. Genetic Store Cultivated varieties can be improved by breeding with wild varieties. Medicines Green medicine has been used for thousands of years.
5 Biomes Biomes are defined as similar climatic conditions on the Earth, such as communities of plants, animals, and soil organisms. Biomes are defined by factors such as plant structure (e.g. trees, shrubs, grasses), leaf type (e.g. broadleaf, needle) and climate. Here is a map showing the major biomes of the world: Highlight all the biomes that can be found at Birmingham Botanical Gardens both inside the glasshouses and outside in the gardens.
6 Ecosystems An ecosystem is a biological community of organisms (plants, animals, etc.) interacting with each other and the physical (non-living) components of their environment (e.g. air, water, soil). Two ecosystems in the glasshouses at Birmingham Botanical Gardens are the Tropical Rainforest and the Arid Desert. Ecosystems are systems with inputs, processes and outputs. Inputs are anything that comes into the ecosystem (e.g. minerals from the soil). Processes are the things that go on within the ecosystem (e.g. pollination of flowers by insects). Outputs are anything that leaves the ecosystem (e.g. oxygen as a result of plant photosynthesis). Stand in one of the glasshouses and try to list as many of the inputs, processes and outputs that you can think of for this ecosystem. Inputs Processes Outputs
7 The Tropical House Setting the scene: Rainforests do not have seasons like ours. The weather stays the same, and the trees keep their leaves (evergreen). Rainforests cover 6-8% of the world s land surface and contain a large variety of plant and animal life. It is thought that more than half of all the organisms on Earth live in rainforests! A typical 5km 2 of rainforest contains up to 1500 species of flowering plants. The whole of the UK has only 1443 different plant species! Climate Fill in the spider diagram with eight words to describe how you feel in a tropical climate. Tropical Climate Is it? hot warm cool cold sticky dry wet damp bright dull dark musty comfortable uncomfortable

Ways of saving water FEATURE EXAMPLE Thick cuticle (skin) and waxy coating Ridges No leaves No stem Protection from the sun FEATURE EXAMPLE Growing upright Hairy Protection from animals FEATURE EXAMPLE Thorns or prickles Bitter sap
26 Adaptations Choose one plant from the Arid House. Draw it in the box and label the adaptations that help it to survive in the desert. Economic Plants Lots of plants from the arid desert regions of the world can be used for food, medicines or raw materials. Fill in the table below to identify a range of products. The symbols on the large plant labels and the smaller black labels will help you. Name of plant Country of origin Product
27 Additional Activity (Inside) Choose one plant from any of the climates you have seen today. Make a detailed drawing and description of this plant, including the country or countries in which it grows, products, adaptations, etc. Name of plant:
28 Additional Activity (Outside) Use the box below to sketch part of the outside area of the Botanical Gardens. You may choose to sit on the bank outside the café area. Helpful tips when drawing a sketch: Think about the size of different objects, e.g. a tree will look smaller the further away it is. Use shading to show light and darkness. Your drawing doesn t need to be totally accurate, it just needs to show basic outlines/features. Label 2 PHYSICAL parts of the drawing, e.g. anything that humans have not built. Label 2 HUMAN parts of the drawing, e.g. anything that humans have built.
29 Glossary Adaptation Canopy Climate Environment Epiphytes Habitat Herb Humidity Hygrometer Succulent Weather Any feature of a plant or animal which helps it to survive its environment. The roof made from the branches of trees. A way of describing the typical weather conditions of a place. All the conditions which affect the place where a plant lives, e.g. light, water, other living things. Plants which grow on other living things. However, unlike parasites, they do not harm their hosts by taking food or water from them. The place where a certain plant may live. Usually a description of the kind of environment there.
