The Tropical Rainforest

 The tropical rain forest is a forest that is full of tall trees, exotic animals, and is warm yearly.  An average of 50 to 260 inches of rain falls yearly.  Rain forest belong to the tropical wet group.  The temperature rarely gets higher than 93 degrees Fahrenheit or lower than 68 degrees Fahrenheit.  The average humidity is 77 and 88%. Many species of animal life can be found in the rain forest. Common characteristics found among mammals and birds (and reptiles and amphibians, too) include adaptations to a life in the trees, such as the prehensile tails of New World monkeys. Other characteristics are bright colors and sharp patterns, loud vocalizations, and diets heavy on fruits.



What is a Climatogram 

Large ecosystems like the tropical rainforest can be summarized by their climate using a  climatogram. A climatogram can help determine the high and low temperatures of a climate. It also shows precipitation by month.  As you can see, the picture below shows us that the average precipitation is between 300 and 400 cm  and the average temperature is between 68 and 93 degrees Fahrenheit.
