Each level therefore has its own microclimate. A walk through any mixed temperate forest will also reveal strata: a canopy of the tallest trees, with an understorey of smaller or younger trees, beneath which grows a layer of shrubs. At ground level a layer of herbaceous plants grows among the seedlings of shrubs and trees. What is unique in the rain forest is the range of different strata, the vast numbers of different plants in each layer, and the enormous difference in light levels between the upper and lower strata LIFE Magazine - January 26, 1942.

S. they were able to use 1:100,000 scale maps. Some countries, such as Canada (British Columbia) and Australia (Tasmania), had published figures which they were able to utilize. Weigand synthesized this and other data to produce a series of small scale maps (1:2,000,000 to 1:36,000,000) for most areas of the world. Phase 1 of the GIS project consisted of digitizing a series of small scale maps on which Weigand delineated coastal temperate rain forest, a 1:3,300,000 map of North America previously published by Ecotrust/CI, a map of forest types from the Atlas of Tasmania, and a map of the historic extent of indigenous New Zealand forests download National Geographic Magazine - March 1974 - Vol. 145 No. 3 pdf.
