Rainforest Biome


The plants and animals of rainforest biome are all adapted to a lot of rain.

In tropical rainforests, they ale also adapted to heat, and in temperate rainforests to cooler temperatures and bigger seasonal changes.






But because the conditions are so good (mainly because of plenty of water), rainforests are also very crowded with a myriad of plant and animal species.

Consequently, the life in the rainforest is not easy.




Competition is very high and both plants and animals are constantly fighting for survival.

Rainforest soil is poor on nutrients.

Competition of sunlight is extreme with vines and epiphytes even growing on top of other plants to reach the sunlight.

And because of a myriad of animal species, competition between them is high too.
