Climate
 The climate in the rainforest is mostly rain, hence the
title, and is sunny and humid and sticky feeling.
 The rainfall amount is 80 to 260 inches a year.
 It’s hot and warm all year long
 In some rainforests it rains 200 days a year
Location

A rainforest is a mass amount of land covered in all kinds of vegetation
like trees and vines. It is home to many of Earth’s creatures. Surprisingly
rainforests cover 7% of the world.
Physical Landscape
Emergent layer-more windy, and is where most monkeys climb
around
Canopy layer- thick branches, small breeze, and more wildlife than
the top layer
Understory layer- leafy bushes, it’s very dark and hot, blooms with
flowers, and is where the birds chose to fly and the frogs chose to sit
Forest floor-is the dirt bottom of the forest and is where insects and
anteaters loom
Rivers- rivers pass all around in rainforests and are swarming with
hungry crocodiles and deadly piranha fish. Don’t fall in.
Human Influences
 The trees in some rainforest are being chopped down and used
for building purposes
 The jaguars are being hunted for there fur and bones
 These beautiful forests will soon no longer be here, the jaguars
won’t prowl again or maybe the beautiful plants will be destroyed
or run over by the destruction
