Caption: Temperate rainforest. View of vegetation in a North American temperate rainforest, showing conifers covered with clubmosses, and ferns and mosses growing on the forest floor. Temperate rainforest occurs in regions with a mild coastal climate, high rainfall, and where temperatures rarely drop below freezing or rise above 27 Celsius. New seedlings often begin growing on "nurse logs", usually fallen spruces; as a result the trees often end up in rows. The clubmosses growing on the conifers seen here are epiphytes (aerial plants) which can make their own nutrients and do not parasitize the trees. Photographed at Olympic National Park, Washington, USA.
