Rainforest Biome


Sunlight: Direct Light all year long. The sunlight does not reach the forest floor because the canopy of large plant leaves is blocking the sun.

Temperature Range: 80 -90 degrees F. Very hot all year long, so plants grow all year long.

Precipitation: 80-260 in. per year. Promotes lots of plant growth, which attracts lots of animals.

Soil: Poor soil with very few nutrients.

Human Effect: Deforestation (cutting trees to clear land)

Causes of deforestation: Farming, Mining, and Logging- lumber.
