One site, Cherapunji, holds the record for the greatest one-year precipitation total anywhere: In just 40 years, possibly 1bn hectares , the equivalent of Europe, has gone. Every day, people eat foods that started out in the rain forest. The main areas of this immensely important rainforest are: If there is money to protect forests, will it go to big companies as subsidy, or lead to evictions of people and human rights abuses? Monsoon rainforests get from between to inches of rain annually. Biodiversity declines dramatically; the forest loses significance as a carbon source; and the increased use of mineral fertilizer leads to additional leaching of nutrients such as nitrogen.
The Tropical Rainforest
Tree frogs are secondary consumers. He has written extensively on outdoor recreation, ecology and earth science for outlets such as Backpacker Magazine, the Bureau of Land Management and Atlas Obscura. This may be true of some African and Asian countries, but generally countries with the most tropical rain forest are those with the lowest human population densities. Although temperature and evaporation rates play significant roles in establishing the conditions for rainforest climate, average annual precipitation — and, specifically, quite a lot of it — is the defining environmental factor: You can make it easier for us to review and, hopefully, publish your contribution by keeping a few points in mind. Insects make up the largest single group of animals that live in tropical forests. Their droppings grow into new plants and help rainforests to survive.
Tropical Rain Forest Biome
Too much of the world's tropical rain forests have already been destroyed because of burning, logging, cattle ranching, dam building, and poor farming practices. A typical 4-square-mile Many trees and plants, like orchids, have been removed from the rain forest and cultivated. Their pledges to stop or reduce deforestation are mostly conditional on rich countries financially and technically helping them achieve this — and the onus on reducing emissions is on these rich countries which have historically caused most climate change.

Who knows what will be found next? Although you may not put a lot of thought and consideration into the rainforest, perhaps you should. It remains very difficult, but a political and financial mechanism has now been created to incentivise countries, companies and communities to do so at a fraction of the cost of reducing comparable emissions in the US or Europe. In a nutshell a rainforest is a dense jungle. Many plants in the rainforests have adapted leaf shapes that help water drip off the plant to avoid too much moisture, which might make bacteria and fungus grow. The top layer of the rainforest is called the emergent layer. Although much of Sri Lanka remains drenched by the summer monsoon, there are a few regions not affected in July.
