Tropical Rainforest Biome

By: Kaylee Sanchez

Information on This Biome:

Tropical Rainforests are warm and humid all year. There is no dry season, and this helps keep their large variety of plants alive. This biome has a vast amount of different animal species, and has the most Biodiversity. The temperature stays between 70 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit all year. There are three layers of every rainforest; the forest floor, the understory, and the canopy. Rainforests are very important, because due to their excessive amount of trees, they produce 40% of the world's oxygen. This is why we must stop excessive tree chopping in Earth's forests.
