Rainforests are subject to heavy rainfall, at least 80 inches (2,000 mm), and in some areas over 430 inches of rain each year (Butler, 2007) Beneath the Canopy online.

Phenology is the study of the timing of natural events – in particular, life cycle events such as leaf out, migration, flowering, or mating. Since many of these events are tied to temperature, phenology can be a powerful way to study the effects of climate change THE EMERALD REALM: Earth's Precious Rain Forests. At ground level, some primary evergreen rain forests are so dark that the forest floor may be fairly bare and easy to walk through; but in more open forests, where the light levels are higher, the forest floor is a "jungle" of herbaceous plants and juvenile trees, shrubs and lianas May 5, 1947 - LIFE Magazine.
