Some of the plants that live in the rainforest help make important medicines to cure diseases.
It is almost always raining in a rainforest. Rainforests get over 2m of rain each year. This is about 3.8 cm of rain each week. The rain is more evenly distributed throughout the year in a tropical. In a temperate rainforest, there are wet and dry seasons. During the "dry" season, coastal fog supplies abundant moisture to the forest.
The temperature in a rainforest never freezes and never gets very hot. The range of temperature in a tropical rainforest is usually between 24-27° C. Temperate rainforests rarely freeze or get over 27° C.
