Tropical Rain Forest (2)

In this article we will discuss Tropical Rain Forest (2)

Both plants and animal species exist in greater diversity in the tropical rain forest than anywhere else does in the world. Tropical rain forest soils in general are exceedingly thin and nutrient poor relative to temperate regions. As a result nutrients are locked in the biomass in the tropics and removal of vegetation may severely disrupt nutrient cycling leading to ecological disaster. This brief survey of biome characteristics should make it obvious that
various regions differ in their ability to return to an ecologically stable condition once they have been disrupted by human activities.
