Rainforest Facts Everyone Should Know

A rainforest is defined by the fact that it contains many large evergreen trees that never lose their leaves, and by the high amount of rainfall it receives. Specifically, to be classed as a rainforest, the area must receive continuous and heavy rainfall, reaching a range of between 98 and 177 inches in a year. In a rainforest, a single 4-square-mile patch of rainforest can have up to 1,500 blooming plants, 750 variations of trees, 400 species of birds, and 15 classes of butterflies.
