As seen from the Climograph, the average temperature (white) ranges from a constant 75 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Precipitation levels (red) reach its lowest point in the winter time, July to September. The climate is normally extremely hot and humid year-round.
- Due to the high humidity, many plants have created an adaptation called a dip trip. It promotes drainage of water from the surface of the leaf and helps so that the branches do not get weighed down and break.
- some leaves also have oily coatings to help repel water
- The heavy rain cause nutrients to dissolve and leads to shallow soil; therefore, plants must go through extreme measures to retain nutrients.
- The Rainforest thus has a short nutrient cycle and 99% of its nutrients are held in root mats
- The Rainforest is the most diverse of all the biomes. Its diversity is explained by the ready availability of water combined with the warm temperatures.
