1. Where it is located

1.1. Most tropical rainforest in Asia is found in Indonesia (on scattered islands), the Malay peninsula (Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar), and Laos and Cambodia.

2. What is the temperature of this location?

2.1. The rainforest biome remains warm all year and must stay frost-free. The average daily temperatures range from 20°C to 25°C.

3. The weather there

3.1. Rainforests receive the most rain of all of the biomes in a year.

3.2. Since tropical rainforests have so many plants, there's a ton of transpiration. When you get that much water vapor hovering over rainforests, it's bound to rain a lot.

5. What is a tropical rainforest?

5.1. Tropical rainforests are rainforests that occur in areas of tropical rainforest climate in which there is no dry season.

6. What is the amount of Earth's land that is covered with tropical rainforests?

6.1. Today around 13 percent of Earth's land is covered with tropical forests (about 2 billion hectares or 7.7 million square miles), of which much consists of tropical rainforest. The largest unbroken stretch of rainforest is found in the Amazon river basin of South America.

7. Does tropical rainforest exist outside of the tropics?

7.1. Rainforests also exist outside the tropics, including temperate North America, South America, Australia, and Russia.

8. What types of animals live in tropical rainforest?

8.1. These rainforests have rich biodiversity and nearly 40% to 75% of all species on Earth inhabit these forests. Fauna of these rainforests includes the jaguar, tapir, okapi, boa constrictor, African gray parrot, keel-billed toucan, crowned eagle, three-toed sloth, spider monkey, large flying fox, king colobus, and more.

10. Type of plants that live in the tropical rainforest.

10.1. Ferns, lichens, mosses, orchids, and bromeliads are all epiphytes. The tropical rainforest is also home to nepenthes or pitcher plants. These are plants that grow in the soil. They have leaves that form a cup where moisture gathers. Pitcher plants capture insects in these cups!

11. Types of fruits and vegetables in the rainforest.

11.1. At least 80% of the developed world’s food originated in the tropical rainforest. Its bountiful gifts to the world include fruits like avocados, coconuts, figs, oranges, lemons, grapefruit, bananas, guavas, pineapples, mangos and tomatoes; vegetables including corn, potatoes, rice, winter squash and yams; spices like black pepper, cayenne, chocolate, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, sugar cane, tumeric, coffee and vanilla and nuts including Brazil nuts and cashews.

12. fun Facts

12.1. Out of the 6 million square miles (15 million square kilometers) of tropical rainforest that once existed worldwide, only 2.4 million square miles (6 million square km) remain, and only 50 percent, or 75 million square acres (30 million hectares), of temperate rainforests still exists.
