Rainforest flora & fauna

  1. 1. RAINFOREST FLORA & FAUNA
  2. 2. A tropical rainforest evokes images of thick, lush green vegetation.
  3. 3. Four different layers make up the rain forest biome. • The top layer, known as the emergent layer, consists of the tops of the tallest trees that rise above the rest of the forest. They get lots of sunlight and help protect the layers of forest below. • The canopy, the next layer down, consists of the crowns of the other tall trees that grow close together, blocking much of the sunlight from reaching lower layers. • The understory consists of small trees, bushes and plants that require almost no sunlight to survive. • The bottom layer receives almost no sunlight, but contains the decaying materials from upper layers.
