4 The Layers of the Rainforest There are four main parts of a rainforest. There are four main parts of a rainforest. They are emergent, canopy, under story and the forest floor. They are emergent, canopy, under story and the forest floor.

5 Emergent Layer EMERGENT LAYER The Emergent Layer is the highest level of the Rainforest. Giant trees reach to the sky. It is not uncommon for the hardwood evergreens and broad-leaf Rainforest trees to reach an amazing 180 to 200’ in height.

6 Two of the rainforest layers The Canopy Layer is found directly beneath the Emergent Layer. The Canopy Layer is the primary life sustaining layer with an abundance of food and forms a natural roof over the remaining two layers beneath. The Canopy Layer is found directly beneath the Emergent Layer. The Canopy Layer is the primary life sustaining layer with an abundance of food and forms a natural roof over the remaining two layers beneath. UNDERSTORY LAYER The Under story Layer is directly underneath the Canopy Layer and on top of the Forest Floor. Growth here is very dense. The Understory Layer is a dark, sometimes almost impenetrable natural habitat entwined with vines, shrub and broadleaf trees.

9 Save the rainforest. Use as little tropical wood or wood-based products as you can. Use as little tropical wood or wood-based products as you can. (this is about 4000 football (this is about 4000 football fields per hour). fields per hour). Most of the products that we use in our country come from rainforests, such as rubber, coffee and rain forest lumber. Most of the products that we use in our country come from rainforests, such as rubber, coffee and rain forest lumber. When these forests are cut down, the plants and animals that live in the forests are destroyed, and some species are at risk of being made extinct. Rainforests are cut down to harvest the timber and also to make room for farms to grow coffee and spices.
