Abiotic factors that influence regeneration in a dry tropical rainforest include low soil moisture and high variation in rainfall based on season. Deciduous plants are most likely to regenerate within this generally dry environment.
The low humidity and low soil moisture of dry tropical rainforests restrict water and nutrient availability for plants. Nonetheless, deciduous plants within this environment can adapt and regenerate in these dry conditions.
The rainfall within a dry tropical rainforest varies based on the season. Despite their ability to adapt to dry conditions, plants within this environment still germinate most favorably during the rainiest parts of the season.
