The layer creates a green carpet, The second layer is herb layer which contain a small plants .The next layer is the shrub layer which contain more bigger plants than herb layer .The next layer is small plant layer and the next is tree stratum zone . In many cases plants are so thick that the rain wont come under ground, spring is the season of reproduction.[Temperate deciduos rainforest animals.sponser enchanted laerning.http://www.enchantedlearning.com/biomes/tempdecid/tempdecid.shtml]
