Tropical Rainforest Strata: Label Me!
Rainforest Information
Read the definitions, then label the strata (layers) of the tropical rainforest diagram below.

canopy - the upper parts of most of the trees (about 65 to 130 feet or 20 to 40 m tall). This leafy environment is full of life: insects, arachnids, many birds, some mammals, etc.

emergents - the tops of the tallest trees, which are much higher than the average trees (the canopy).

forest floor - the ground - it is teeming with animal life, especially insects and arachnids, plus large animals (like anacondas and jaguars).

understory - a dark, cool environment that is under the leaves but over the ground. Most of the understory of a rainforest has so little light that plant growth is limited. There are short, leafy, mostly non-flowering shrubs, small trees, ferns, and vines (lianas) that have adapted to filtered light and poor soil.
