Tropical rain forests are mainly the product of climatic interactions,
particularly temperature and rainfall. In general, tropical rain forests
occur where a mean monthly temperature of between 20 and
28 degrees C is combined with an annual rainfall of between
1.5 and 10 metres, evenly distributed throughout the year. This last
proviso is very important because it is only to those tropical forests
which experience little seasonal variation in terms of rainfall that the
term rain forest can legitimately be applied.
