TROPICAL LOWLAND RAINFOREST HABITAT
Specific meteorological data from this habitat is now discussed. It is often difficult
to obtain specific climatic data representative of each of the habitats. The following information is indicative
of the conditions generally experienced, but 'normal' conditions for each are discussed at the end of each habitat
At a more equitable maritime habitat on the coast of Cambodia, a total annual rainfall
of 1390 mm is experienced, but this is unevenly distributed.
This area is subject to the summer monsoons, which are at full force in early autumn. although
the timing of the monsoon varies in different localities. For some 8 months of the year, monthly rainfall is less
