Tropical Rainforest & Temperate Rainforest


There are two types of rainforest. One is the Tropical which is near to the equator known as the tropic zone and then The Temperate that is situated next to the coasts in the temperate zone.

Temperatures close to the tropic zone are higher, causing accelerated evaporation of water, which giving as consequences, frequent rain in forested areas in the tropics.

The Tropical rainforests are in South and Central America, Africa, Australia, and cover only about 6% of the Earth's surface.

The largest tropical rainforest is in the Amazon River Basin, the Congo River Basin, and throughout much of Southeast Asia. There are many smaller ones located throughout the tropics including Central America, Madagascar, Australia and India.

The Temperate rainforests are in the temperate zones that are found in the pacific coast of the United States and Canada, New Zealand, Tasmania, Chile, Ireland, Scotland and Norway. There are fewer temperate forests. Also they cover a lot less area.

The following map above shows it the two types of Rainforest.
