Tropical Forest is a biome in Zoo Tycoon 2.


Most tropical rainforests, or moist forests, are located near the equator and tend to be hot and humid, but have the highest concentration of rainfall anywhere. Due to high amounts of sunlight and year-round rainfall, these rainforests are some of the most productive ecosystems in the world and have a large diversity of species. Trees are evergreen and have broad-leaves. Several different layers of vegetation are also prominent in a tropical rainforest and many species have become adapted to these different layers.
