The Climate in a Tropical Rainforest

  • Found close to the equator
  • Warm and humid all year
  • Lots of rain! About 250 cm per year
  • The Most Biodiversity on the Earth!
  • Average temperature approximately 77°F
  • The trees in this climate reach heights of more than 164 feet
  • Trees make a "roof" of leaves called the canopy. The canopy often shields the forest floor (aka the understory) from rain.
