What defines a tropical rainforest?

Tropical Rain Forests are found in warm and humid areas with annual precipitation of over 200 cm and mean annual temperature above 22 degrees celsius. They are so dense that sunlight doesn’t reach the ground. Many species of trees are found in these forests, which shed their leaves at different times of the year. They always appear green and are therefore called evergreen forests.
