Caption: Temperate rainforest. View of vegetation in a North American temperate rainforest, showing conifers, and ferns 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. Sitka Spruce, Bigleaf Maple and Western Hemlock are dominant species in North American temperate rainforest. New seedlings often begin growing on "nurse logs", usually fallen spruces; as a result the trees often end up in rows. Photographed at Olympic National Park, Washington, USA.
