Why Rainforest Ecosystems Are So Important

Amazon Tropical Rainforest

The tropical rainforest ecosystems are one of the most important ecosystems on earth. There are literally thousands of different species of plants and animals that inhabit the tropical rain forests. Unfortunately, what you know about rain forests may be limited to movies that you have seen, with hundred foot snakes and large tropical plants devouring people in one fell swoop. While there can be dangers in a rain forest environment, what you see in a movie theater is not always what is real.

If you have ever looked out across the ocean and wondered about the thousands of species that live underneath, you will want to learn more about ocean ecosystems. The plants and animals that live in this environment require special ‘living arrangements’ and there are many things that humans can do, in order to make sure that the oceans are around, in their healthy state, for longer.
