Location and Climate

 

 

You can find tropical rainforests in many parts of the world, especially in Asia, Australia and South America.  Typically, a rainforest is very wet and hot and is a unique biome because it has an annual rainfall of more than 150cm and 50% of its precipitation comes from evaporation of its own water. Rainforests are found close to the equator and their temperatures average around 77o F.  They may have cool temperatures at times if they are further away from the equator, but they never get colder than 32o F.  This is important for the plants which have adapted to a hot and wet biome.(http://www.blueplanetbiomes.org/rnfrst_climate_page.htm)
