Rainforest Quizzes & Trivia

Located near the Earth’s equator, the tropical rainforests are hot, moist biomes, the largest of which can be found in South America, Africa and Southeast Asia. What do you know about the areas from a biological standpoint? Let’s find out.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    In what places around the world are tropical rainsforests located?

    • A.

      Central America

    • B.

      Antarctica

    • C.

      Austrailia

    • D.

      Africa

    • E.

      Indo-Malaysia

    • F.

      North America

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Central America
    D. Africa
    E. Indo-Malaysia
    Explanation
    Tropical rainforests are located in Central America, Africa, and Indo-Malaysia. These regions have the ideal climate and conditions for the growth of lush vegetation and diverse wildlife. The high temperatures and abundant rainfall in these areas create a perfect environment for the development of dense forests. Additionally, the rich soil and year-round warmth support the growth of a wide variety of plant species, making these regions prime locations for tropical rainforests.

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    Tropical Rainforests are cold.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Tropical rainforests are not cold, but rather they are known for their hot and humid climate. These regions typically have high temperatures and abundant rainfall throughout the year, which creates a warm and moist environment. The term "tropical" itself refers to the characteristic warm and equatorial climate found in these rainforests. Therefore, the statement that tropical rainforests are cold is incorrect.

  • 3. 

    Scientist are still discovering new species in the Tropical Rainforest.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that scientists are continuously finding new species in the Tropical Rainforest. This implies that there are still unknown and undocumented species in this specific ecosystem. The word "still" emphasizes the ongoing nature of these discoveries, indicating that the process of finding new species is not yet complete. Therefore, the correct answer is "True."

  • 4. 

    What are the levels of the rainforest?

    • A.

      Emergent Layer

    • B.

      Canopy Layer

    • C.

      Understory/ shrub layer

    • D.

      Forest Floor

    • E.

      Hannah Montana

    • F.

      Chicago

    • G.

      There are no layers

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Emergent Layer
    B. Canopy Layer
    C. Understory/ shrub layer
    D. Forest Floor
    Explanation
    The levels of the rainforest are categorized as the emergent layer, canopy layer, understory/shrub layer, and forest floor. The emergent layer consists of the tallest trees that tower above the canopy layer. The canopy layer is made up of the majority of the rainforest's trees and forms a dense, leafy roof. The understory/shrub layer is located beneath the canopy and consists of smaller trees, shrubs, and plants. Finally, the forest floor is the lowest level, covered in decomposing leaves and vegetation.

  • 5. 

    You can see the sun from the forest floor.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the dense canopy of trees in a forest blocks most of the sunlight from reaching the forest floor. As a result, the sun is not visible from the forest floor.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Tropical Rainforests and ______________________ are similiar.

    Correct Answer
    deciduous forests
    Explanation
    Tropical rainforests and deciduous forests are similar in terms of their vegetation and climate. Both types of forests have a diverse range of plant species and are characterized by high rainfall. Deciduous forests, like tropical rainforests, experience distinct seasons and have trees that shed their leaves during certain times of the year. Additionally, both types of forests provide important habitats for various animal species and play a crucial role in maintaining global biodiversity.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    What common physical characteristics do animals in the Tropical Rainforest share

    • A.

      Bright colors

    • B.

      Sharp patterns

    • C.

      Loud vocalizations

    • D.

      Heavy diets on fruits

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    E. All of the above
    Explanation
    Animals in the Tropical Rainforest share common physical characteristics such as bright colors, sharp patterns, loud vocalizations, and heavy diets on fruits. These characteristics are adaptations that help them survive in their environment. Bright colors and sharp patterns can serve as warning signals or camouflage, while loud vocalizations help in communication and territorial defense. The heavy diets on fruits indicate the availability of this food source in the rainforest, which many animals have evolved to exploit. Therefore, all of the given options are correct and represent common physical characteristics of animals in the Tropical Rainforest.

    What the the most common plants in a Tropical Rainforest?

    • A.

      Orchids

    • B.

      Trees

    • C.

      Vines

    • D.

      Mangoes

    • E.

      Guavas

    • F.

      Giraffes

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Orchids
    B. Trees
    C. Vines
    Explanation
    The most common plants in a Tropical Rainforest are orchids, trees, and vines. Orchids are known for their vibrant flowers and are abundant in rainforests. Trees are a dominant feature of rainforests, providing shelter and food for various organisms. Vines are also common in rainforests, climbing and intertwining with trees to reach sunlight. Mangoes and guavas are fruit-bearing trees that can be found in some rainforest regions, but they are not the most common plants. Giraffes, on the other hand, are not plants and do not belong in the list of common plants in a Tropical Rainforest.
