LOCATION

The tropical rain forest can be found in three major geographical areas around the world.


1. Central America in the Amazon river basin.

2. Africa - Zaire basin, with a small area in West Africa; also eastern Madagascar.

3. Indo-Malaysia - west coast of India, Assam, Southeast Asia, New Guinea and Queensland, Australia.

Almost all rain forests lie near the equator.

It usually live in the equator because the sun, shine at the equator so all the plant and tree can get some sun light so they grow faster so the animal can eat it.

Description

The tropical of rain forest is a forest of tall trees in a region of year-round warmth. An average of 125 to 660 cm of rain falls yearly.Rain forests belong to the tropical wet climate group. The temperature in a rain forest rarely gets higher than 93 °F (34 °C) or drops below 68 °F (20 °C); average humidity is between 77 and 88%; rainfall is often more than 100 inches a year.

why does animal live in rainforset

Because of the temperatures range from around 75 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit, day and night, which means animals don't have to worry about finding shelter to survive in freezing temperatures. Trees provide continuous shade and rain falls daily in the rainforest, so water is always available. The abundance of energy supports an abundance of plant and animal species


Insects are the most abundant form of life in the world's rainforests. Insects, along with birds and mammals work together to find food and they all live a symbiotic lifestyle. Unfortunately, thanks to habitat loss and deforestation, close to 137 species are driven to extinction every day in the world's rainforests.

plant

Because rainforests are located in tropical regions, they receive a lot of sunlight. The sunlight is converted to energy by plants through the process of photosynthesis. Since there is a lot of sunlight, there is a lot of energy in the rainforest. This energy is stored in plant vegetation.

conclusion

It is important to note that many species in the rainforest, especially insects and fungi, have not even been discovered yet by scientists. Every year new species of mammals, birds, frogs, and reptiles are found in rainforests.
