    Hello friend!!
    Here’s ur answer!
    The tropical evergreen forests have tall trees with height of above fifty metres.
    These forests are called evergreen as they have no particular time to shed their leaves. They shed their leaves all the time.

    Tropical monsoon forests have trees of nearly all heights .
    They forests have layers of trees, like :
    Tropical rainforests have four layers:
    Emergent Layer
    The giant trees thrust above the dense canopy layer and have huge mushroom-shaped crowns. These trees enjoy the greatest amount of sunlight but also must endure high temperatures, low humidity, and strong winds.
    Canopy Layer
    The broad, irregular crowns of these trees form a tight, continuous canopy 60 to 90 feet above the ground. The branches are often densely covered with other plants and tied together with vines. The canopy is home to 90% of the organisms found in the rain forest.
    Receiving only 2-15% of the sunlight that falls on the canopy, the understory is a dark place. It is relatively open and contains young trees and leafy herbaceous plants that tolerate low light.
    Forest Floor
    The forest floor receives less than 2% of the sunlight and consequently, little grows here except plants adapted to very low light. On the floor is a thin layer of fallen leaves, seeds, fruits, and branches that very quickly decomposes. Only a thin layer of decaying organic matter is found, unlike in temperate deciduous forests.
    Soil and Nutrient Recycling
    Most tropical rainforest soils relatively poor in nutrients. Millions of years of weathering and torrential rains have washed most of the nutrients out of the soil. More recent volcanic soils, however, can be very fertile. Tropical rain forest soils contain less organic matter than temperate forests and most of the available nutrients are found in the living plant and animal material. Nutrients in the soil are often in forms that are not accessible by plants.
    Constant warmth and moisture promote rapid decay of organic matter.
    The layers are of different height.
    The called tropical monsoon rainforests experience rainfall, every afternoon at four o’ clock.
    The forests are marshy and swampy.

    Hope it helps!!☺


    tropical evergreen forests are those which have trees with height of above 50 m. these forests are said to be evergreen as they have no particular time to shed their leaves. whereas tropical monsoon forests are those , which have forests of nearly all the heights , they actually have layers when , it comes to the matter of height variations in the tree. they are called tropical monsoon , as they experience monsoon , almost every afternoon..
