Equatorial rainforest is the term given to the closed, permanently green, broadleaved forest, typical of lowland areas.

Montane Forests Occur at higher above sea level. Their temperature is lower  in comparison to equatorial rainforests.

Monsoon rainforests occur in areas that experience a monsoon climate, such as South East Asia and northern Australia.

Peat and swamp forests occur primarily in South East Asia. They are found in lowland areas where decomposition (rotting) is limited by waterlogging,(standing water) which can cause a considerable thickness of peat to build up.

In tropical coastal zones rainforests often grade into mangrove. These are not regarded as rainforests, but are swamp forests dominated by species adapted to live in brackish ,(salty) waterlogged conditions.
