Tropical Rain Forest

Tropical Rain Forest

TROPICAL RAIN FOREST By: Eileen Perez Due: June 1, 2011 Biome Facts Tropical rainforests often feature warm weather and rain throughout the year.

More than 2,250 types of plants and trees and 835 different species of animals live in tropical rain forests. Tropical rain forests provide about 40 percent of the world's oxygen even though they only cover a small portion of the Earth. Many rain forests have disappeared because of deforestation.

CLIMATE In an average year in a tropical rain forest, the climate is very humid because of all the rainfall, which amounts to about 250 cm per year. Rain forests are so hot because they are

found near the equator. The closer to the equator you are, the more solar radiation there is. The more solar radiation there is, the hotter it is. LOCATION Tropical rainforests are located near the

equator. Fifty seven percent of all tropical rainforests are found in Latin America. One third of the world's tropical rainforests are in Brazil. Other tropical rainforests are located in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands (25% of the world's tropical rainforests) and West

Africa (18%). ORGANISMS Habitats
