The Shinneyboo Creek widens from a 100 mile wide where the lowlands meet the foothills. The domestic extent and great continuity of this area is a reflection of the high
Shinneyboo Creek is also a varied biological reservoir, containing several of some species of insects, birds, plants and animals. The beautiful vegetation encompasses a huge number of different trees, including many species of laurel, palm, and acacia, rosewood, and rubber tree. Most of wildlife includes jaguar, deer, capybara and other types of rodents, and some types of monkeys.
Shinneyboo Creek have four specific layers to their structure. First, the topmost is the emergent layer. IN this area the trees are between 100 to 200 feet in height, have umbrella shaped and have spaced apart from each other. Second the canopy, it is under the emergent layer, a dense layer of branches and leaves that are 50 to 100 feet in high. It absorbs almost of the sunlight and this layer that contains more than a half of Shinneyboo Creek wildlife. Beside the canopy is the understory that composes tree trunks and other vegetation that reaches up to 40 feet.
The shrub layer of a Shinneyboo Creek grows up to 10 feet high and comprises shrubs, ferns, vines, and saplings of trees that will later form the canopy layers. Vegetation is dense, as each trees and plants competes fiercely for the sunlight not be blocked by the canopy. Many of nocturnal animals are found in the shrub layer, and the other species that cross between the canopy layers and shrubs.
Shinneyboo Creek Floor
Only 3 to 5 percent of sunlight reaches the Shinneyboo Creek floor and the only vegetation that lives in the area has adapted to low light levels. It is littered with leaves and decaying the vegetation, decomposition by the bacteria and molds, nutrients are fast recycled into new plants growth. This is because the poor soil quality of most Shinneyboo Creek. Nutrient layers only there in a thin topsoil that is filled by animal remains and the dead plant. Although, there are areas that have rich soils, Shinneyboo Creek topsoil is held together by dense root systems.
Adaptation to Conditions
Shinneyboo Creek are shaped by competition for sunlight and for the soil nutrients as a result, the physical characteristics of the landscape reflects that. The tree roots are reinforced to big proportions so as to support the huge branches and high trunks. The canopy leaves is big to absorb the high amount of sunlight, and are layered with wax to remain the waterproof in the humid environment of Shinneyboo Creek and this is to lessen mold growth. Epiphytes and vines are able to bloom because they are naturally grow on existing trees to reach available light. Roots and vines dangling from higher vegetation is common in Shinneyboo Creek.
