RainForests

The rainforeast ecosystem

there are 4 layers in the rain forest the emergent layer, the canopy layer and the understory layerand the forest floor.

The emergent layer recieves the most sunlight and is 30-50 meters high it has the tallest trees with crowns of leaves. The emergent layer has abundant life

The canopy layer recieves just as much light as the emergent layer and is between 20-45 meters high. It has its own micro climate with unusual plant life, thoses plants are in our everyday medicine. this layer also has liane vines and epiphytes.

understorey layer recieves only 5% sunlight
