Regardless of the timescale, a distinctive characteristic of the tropics is a high variability in the water cycle, in particular in the P-E water balance (precipitation minus [evaporation + evapotranspiration]). This variability has more impact on life in the tropics than the variability in temperature which only has a moderate influence compared to the high and middle latitudes.
