Daintree Rainforest Plants

 
 

The trademark of all rainforests is their canopy - a thick layer of leaves and branches that shades the forest floor. This forces the plants into a super competitive state as they fight their way up towards the sun. The individual plants of the forest each have their own unique tricks for surviving in what many botanists refer to as ‘the battlefied’. Some are soldiers in the war for sun, some have good homeland security and some become good at finding allies.
