adaptations
Adaptations

Plants: Plants of the Tropical Rainforest have to adapt to growing on other plants to reach sunlight. Plants also have to adapt to heavy rainfall on their leaves. They have adapted to this by shedding water off their leaves quickly so their branches don’t get weighed down and break. Some trees have leaf stalks that turn with the movement of the sun so they can absorb the maximum amount of light since light is scarce in the rainforest.

Animals: Animals of the Tropical Rainforest have to adapt to the rainforest being destroyed by people who cut the trees down. They also have to adapt to living in trees and lots of heavy rainfall. Some adaptations include bright colors, loud vocalizations, and diets heavy on fruit.
