Located mainly in Brazil, Peru and Colombia, the Amazon rainforest is the largest tropical rainforest in the world. The Amazon covers 1.4 billion acres and boasts the most diverse wildlife in the world as well. Questions about the Amazon rainforest can be found here.
Asked in Chimpanzees, Houston, Amazon Rainforest
What places do Chimpanzees live?
The Tropical Rainforest Habitat of Chimpanzees includes forests, woodlands and Savannas. The reason for living here is that the chimpanzees are omnivores, that is they live on fruits, seeds, flowers, leaves and a few animals too and these are in a good supply in these places. They travel a lot so to sleep, they have to build a new nest every night. They live in groups ranging from 16 to 120. They live south east from Egypt.

What are facts about the Daintree Rainforest?
The Daintree Rainforest is the largest rainforest in Australia, covering an area of about 1,200 square kilometres. The Daintree Rainforest was added to the World Heritage List in 1988. About 30% of Australia's reptile, marsupial and frog species, 65% of the country's bat and butterfly species, and 20% of Australia's native bird species can be found within the Daintree. It is located north of Cairns in far north Queensland. The Daintree Rainforest was named after the nineteenth-century Australian geologist and photographer, Richard Daintree.
What is the weather like in Amazon rainforest?
The sun rises at six and begins to heat up the rainforest, causing water to evaporate and rise, making clouds. At about 3:00, the sun is at it's hottest and brightest, and tons of rain soon begins to fall, soaking the Amazon. Then, everything just calms down at night, ready for another hectic day the next day.

What plants are found in the Amazon rainforest?
Where do chimpanzees live?
Chimpanzees live in central and west-central Africa, in the tropical rainforests. The rainforests supply food for the chimpanzees, who are omnivores (they eat fruits, seeds, flowers, leaves and also insects). Chimpanzees live in groups of from 16 to 100 individuals, usually segregated into cooperative family groups. The trees of the forest provide protection from predators, as chimps have excellent climbing abilities. Some chimpanzee groups are more nomadic than others, moving frequently to locate food.

What is the climate like in the Amazon rainforest?
The climate in the Amazonian rain forest is warm and humid and the average temperature in the area is about 79 degrees Fahrenheit. One of the prominent features of this area is the difference between the temperature during the day and during the night is greater than that of the difference between the seasons. The Amazon rain forest consists four layers and each layer has its unique ecosystem and plants and animals are adapted to that. The tallest layer is called the emergent layer, which has trees of approximately 200 feet in height. The other layer is canopy which has smooth oval leaves and have pointed drip tip. This makes the flow of water easy and preventing the growth of mosses and fungi. The layer below the canopy layer is able to get only 5 per cent of sunlight and plants of this layer are uniquely adapted to survive in the shadowy layer. The lowest layer is the forest floor and is almost without any plant. Only 2 percent of sunlight reaches here. A: Between 22 and 32°C, Rarely falls beneath 25°C.

What is the name of one of the national tribes that live in the Amazon rainforest?
What is in the tropical rainforest?
That is a good question. Over 200 species live in the rain forest, including new bacteria, and other sub specimen. Panthers, tree frogs, and about more than 3 dozen other animals you know are in the rain forest. The reason why I like this question so much, is because you didn't ask about JUST animals, but plants too! Ferns, Aloe and many other plants, including fly traps live here too.
Asked in Travel & Places, Amazon Rainforest
What to do in a tropical rainforest?
Tropical rainforests tend to have the largest number of different species per hectare relative to the size of the forest patch, so I would recommend going hiking or nature watching. In some rainforests flowers bloom year round, and there are also more different kinds of brightly colored birds. Depending on the rainforest you could also go fishing, pick the unique plants that are found there, or visit the indigenous people. If you do decide to take any of the animals or plants be careful about the environmental impact of your actions and the local regulations. Sit in the rain and enjoy the time i have to be there

What are the human impacts on the Amazon basin?
== == The impacts are many and they have a domino effect. Clear cutting which causes siltation in streams and reduces the quality of the soils. Most clear cuts are burned which releases CO2 into the atmosphere which contributes to global warming. The clear cutting also destroys natural habitats of delicate ecosystems which therefore leads to a reduction in populations and possibly extinctions.
What is the monthly rainfall in the Daintree rainforest?
What is the main vegetation in the rainforest?
Rain Forests are grouped into two major types: tropical and temperate. Most might say the main vegetation is trees, but rain forests have a vast amount of different kinds of vegetation. Here's some more information: A tropical rain forest has broadleaf evergreen trees that form a closed canopy, and abundance of vines and plants that grow on the trees called epiphytes, a relatively open forest floor, and a large number of species of plants and animals. The largest areas of this type of rain forest are in the Amazon basin of South America, the Congo basin and other lowland equatorial regions of Africa, and on the mainland and islands off Southeast Asia. Small areas of tropical rain forests can also be found in Central America and along the Queensland Coast of Australia. Temperate Rain Forests grow in higher-latitude regions that have wet, maritime climates. They are less extensive than the tropical rain forests, but have some of the most valuable timber in the world. The trees often exceed those of tropical forests in height, but the diversity of species is not as vast. Notable temperate rain forest areas are on the northwest coast of North America, southern Chile, Tasmania, and parts of southeastern Australia and New Zealand. While you will find Conifers, such as Redwood and Sitka Spruce in the temperate rain forests of North America, the tropical rain forests of the southern hemisphere include trees like Eucalyptus, Araucaria, and Nothofagus. Though Rain Forests cover less than six percent of the Earth's total land surface, the are home to up to three-fourths of all known species of plants and animals.

Asked in Rainforests, Soil, Amazon Rainforest
How does rainforest soil infulence climate?
It doesn't. Rainforest climate influences the soil. Soils are the result of a number of interrelated environmental factors, including climate and the organisms that live in and on the soil (mostly plants and microbes, but other living things can have a significant influence). The climate of the rainforest causes a lot of leaching of soluble and partially soluble materials in soils, so most rainforest soils are characterized by low natural fertility.
