The Tropical Rain Forest Biome

The Understory layer recieves only 2-15% of the sunlight that falls on the canopy, the understory is a dark place.

The Forest Floor is the last layer.The forest floor receives less than 2% of the sunlight and consequently, little grows here except plants adapted to very low light.

Facts-The rain forest has four layers.

The Canopy layer is the second highest layer. The tops of trees form a tight canopy 60 to 90 feet above the ground. The canopy is home to about 90% of the organisms found in the rain forest.

--The avrage yearly rainfall is up to 400 cm. (157.5 in.) --The avrage temperatures are 93 degrees in the daytime (34 C.), and 68 degrees in the nighttime (20 C.)

--Tropical rain forests have the most diversity. This means that rain forests have the most species of plants and animals than any other biome.--Most of the animals live in the canopy layer. for example, nearly 1.400 species of birds live in the canopy.

Facts - More than 100 different kinds of trees may live in an area about one-fourth the size of a football field.

The Emergent layer is the very top layer of the rainforest. Only thehighest trees reach this layer. This layer recives the most amount of sunlight.
