Welcome to the Tropical Rainforest Home Page! By Claire Y.

Tropical Rainforests are usually found in areas of warm climates near the Equator. They are often found in Latin America, South America, Africa, Asia, and some parts of Australia. These areas receive much rain and are either on or very close to the equator. In West Africa the rainforests are on the equator, which means that this part of the rainforest will have quite a hot temperature an will receive large amounts of rain

Tropical Rainforest climate is warm and moist because of all the rain. In an average year, rainforests receive 250-400 centimeters of rain each year. Tropical rainforests have only two seasons, a wet season and a dry season. During the wet season, the average amount of rainfall varies from 150-240 centimeters. During the dry season, rainfall may vary from 80-150 centimeters. The average temperatures during the dry and the wet seasons in a tropical rainforest can be any where between 20 - 34 degrees Celsius. A tropical rainforest the lies between the Tropic of Capricorn has moderate seasonal temperature variations but they are hardly noticeable.
