Many Rainforests have over 3000 varieties of plants. The Daintree has about 700 plants species that could not be found any where else in the world. There are fan palm,ferns,conifers,Cycads,palm and pearl vine etc. There are four layers of the Rainforest and they are emergent,canopy,understory and forest floor. The tallest trees are the emergent towering as much as 200 feet above 16 feet around. Canopy layer is a primary layer of the forest and form a roof over the two remaining layers. Understory layer little sunshine reaches this area so the plants have to grow larger leaves to reach the sunshine . Forest floor it is very dark down here. Almost no plants grow at this area, as a result here is a diagram .
