Location of Rain Forests
Tropical rainforest can be found in Central and South America; in Western Africa, eastern Madagascar, and the Zaire basin. Also in indo- Malaysia Along the west coast of indian, Assam, Southeast Asia, New Guinea, and Queensland, Australia.
In temperate rainforests, it is also wet but not as rainy. It rains from 60 - 200 inches each year. The fog there provides about 7 - 12 inches of rain annually. Temperate rainforests are usually a lot cooler than tropical rainforests.
Interdependency between organisms
Evidence: Animals like monkeys have long tails that allow them to hang from trees so they can not be hunted by bobcats. Trees have different shaped leafs to allow water to drip off.
Reasoning: This shows that animals and plants have physical properties that help them in the rain forest. Without these they could die and maybe eventually become extinct.
