Latitude refers to the distance a given point on Earth is located between the equator and one of the poles. Positions of latitude determine the strength and directness of the sun's rays. Lower latitudes are closer to the... More »

Since most rainforests are located near the equator, their climate is always hot, wet and humid. Temperatures in tropical rainforests do not change much. The Amazon rainforest generally retains a temperature between 68 t... More »
