VEGETATION: 

VEGETATION A tropical rain forest is always green. Most trees in the forest lose old leaves and grow new ones throughout the year. But certain species of trees may lose all of their leaves for a short time during the year. Different kinds of trees bear flowers and fruit at various times of the year. Thus, some kind of tree is in bloom or in fruit at any time of the year. Some short trees bear fruit on the trunk or on large, low branches. Some tall trees bear large fruit on long, drooping, ropelike stalks. Some examples of plants are Liana, Passionflower and Strangler Fig Tree.
