The Call of the Rainforest

The Call of the Rainforest

 

Wikipedia’s definition of rainforests... Rainforests are forests characterized by high rainfall, with annual rainfall in the case of tropical rainforests between 250 and 450 centimetres (98 and 177 in), and definitions varying by region for temperate rainforests.

The Earth's oldest living ecosystems are the rainforests and they are in the verge of extinction.

Imagine an earth without trees, plants, animals, insects, amphibians, reptiles, birds, worms, and mammals.

What will happen to the climate, the water cycle?  Without plants, no life on earth will exist.

The oxygen that we breathe are manufactured by plants. They give off oxygen when they make their food. The trees, and plants absorb carbon dioxide in the atmosphere in order to produce oxygen. Animals breathe in oxygen to stay alive. Plants take in the carbon dioxide given off by animals.

Although the rainforests cover only 6 percent of the outermost layer of the earth, fifty percent of plants and animals on earth occupy the rainforests. Substantial amount of rainfall is only found in the rainforests.

Are you aware that the rainforests help the earth establish its weather conditions? It does. It's like a sponge absorbing carbon dioxide as well as reducing the changes of weather conditions throughout the world. The rainforests help prevent floods, droughts, and erosion.

We have this symbiotic relationship with plants and thanks to the rainforests we are alive. There will be no life if plants will disappear from this earth.
