with abundant precipitation the rest of the year. 25 The province of Irian Jaya or West Papua in the island of New Guinea is home to an estimated 44 uncontacted tribal groups. Other groups are more restricted. The tropical vegetation grew so dense that it was difficult to cut one's way through. Light is readily available at the top of this layer, but greatly reduced below. According to some informed estimates, more than a hundred species of rainforest fauna and flora become extinct every week as a result of widespread clearing of forests by humans. This keeps them dry and prevents mold and mildew from forming in the humid environment. Where forests have long been cleared and laterites have developed to cause season waterlogging of the sub strate, tropical grasslands and palm savannas occur. These layers have been identified as A, B, and C layers: A layer: the emergents.

The contrast is particularly stark with respect to mammals. In regions lying between the wet tropics and the deserts, climatic zones developed in which rainfall adequate for luxuriant plant growth was experienced for only a part of the year. Despite these differences, each of the three largest rainforests-the American, the African, and the Asian-has a different group of animal and plant species. Rainforests are forests characterized by high rainfall, with annual rainfall in the case of tropical rainforests between 250 and 450 centimetres (98 and 177 in 1 and definitions varying by region for temperate rainforests. The temperature in a rain forest rarely gets higher than 93 F (34 C) or drops below 68 F (20 C average humidity is between 77 and 88; rainfall is often more than 100 inches a year. Common characteristics of tropical trees: Tropical species frequently possess one or more of the following attributes not seen in trees of higher latitudes. All tropical rain forests resemble one another in some ways.

Tropical rainforests today represent a treasure trove of biological heritage, and they also serve as sinks for more than 50 percent of all atmospheric carbon dioxide absorbed by plants annually. Even within the same area, however, there are likely to be significant variations in soil related to topographic position and to bedrock differences, and these variations are reflected in forest composition and structure. The climate is always hot and wet in most parts of the equatorial belt, but in regions to its north and south seasonal rainfall is experienced. Most of the smaller, more delicate plants that are so widespread in the world today evolved later, ultimately from tropical rainforest ancestors. Many plants have drip tips and grooved leaves, and some leaves have oily coatings to shed water. There is usually a brief season of reduced precipitation.
