Temperate rain forests - Ecosystem

The temperate rain Forests are colder than any other rain forest and exhibit a marked seasonality with regard to temperature and rainfall. Rainfall is high, but fog may be very heavy which may actually represent a more important source of water than rainfall itself. The biotic diversity of temperate forests is high as compared to temperate forest.

However, the diversity of plant and animals is much low as compared to their warmer counterparts. The animals of temperate rain forests are similar to those of deciduous forests, but show a somewhat high diversity.
