The Daintree Rainforest near Cairns, in Queensland Australia Rainforests are forests characterized by high rainfall , with definitions setting minimum normal annual rainfall between 1750-2000 mm (68-78 inches). Rainforests are home to two-thirds of all the living animal and plant species on Earth . It has been estimated that many hundreds of millions of species of plants, insects and microorganisms are still undiscovered. Tropical rainforests have been called the "jewels of the Earth," and the "world's largest pharmacy ," because of the large number of natural medicines discovered there. The undergrowth in a rainforest is restricted in many areas by the lack of sunlight at ground level. This makes it possible to walk through the forest. If the leaf canopy is destroyed or thinned, the ground beneath is soon colonized by a dense, tangled growth of vines shrubs and small trees called a jungle . The two types of rainforest are:

CENTRAL AMERICA This region was once entirely covered with rainforest, but large areas have been cleared for cattle ranching and for sugar cane plantations.
Like other major rainforests, the jungles and mangrove swamps of Central America contain many plants and animals found nowhere else. Central America is famous for its large number of tropical birds, including many kinds of parrots. GO TO TOP THE AMAZON The Amazon jungle is the world's largest tropical rainforest.

Forest carbon credits could guide development in Congo

(5/28/2008) An initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by offering carbon credits to countries that reduce deforestation may be one of the best mechanisms for promoting sustainable development in Central Africa says a remote sensing expert from the Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC). Dr. Nadine Laporte, an associate scientist with WHRC who uses remote sensing to analyze land use change in Africa, says that REDD could protect forests, safeguard biodiversity, and improve rural livelihoods in Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and other Central African nations.

Wild and wondrous, rainforests extend from as far as Alaska and Canada to Latin America, Asia and Africa. They nurture thousands of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth and provide life's essentials such as our medicines, food and water. The Nature Conservancy is working around the world in places like Costa Rica's Osa Peninsula to protect rainforests, engaging local and indigenous communities in creative solutions that balance the needs of people with nature. The places and projects featured on this site reflect examples of The Nature Conservancy's current work in rainforest protection. And every year, through our Adopt an Acre® program , we choose an imperiled rainforest site that is in critical need of protection

      Rainforests are defined and created by rainfall: more than eighty inches per year. Tropical rainforests are located near the equator, a majority of them in Latin America. Temperate rainforests are found in coastal areas, such as the 1,200 miles of temperate rainforest that stretches along the Pacific coast from Oregon to Alaska. Because they are so ecologically rich, many are concerned with their current rate of destruction. Are rainforests worth saving? Learn more, and decide for yourself.
      Live from the Rainforest
      "Rainforests are living emeralds which adorn our world with rare beauty and natural wonders. They are a product of planetary processes and are, in turn, contributors to the water and carbon cycles on which all life depends." You'll find an introduction to rainforests under GeoSystems, a guide to animal and plant life under EcoSystems, and games to play listed under Interact. My favorite game is "Who am I? Where do I live?" Can you guess the rainforest animal, based on the clues?

    A : Today, tropical rainforests cover only 6 percent of the Earth's ground surface, but they're home to over half of the planet's plant and animal species. ­ Tropic­al rainforests are the most diverse ecosystem on Earth, and also the oldest. Today, tropical rainforests cover only 6 percent of the Earth's ground surface, but they are home to over half of the planet's plant and animal species. In this completely unique world, there are thousands of species we have yet to discover.
    ­In this article, we'll travel into the tropical rainforest to see what makes it such a bountiful environment for plants and animals. We'll also see why the rainforests are in danger and look at some of the ways this affects us. ­­

    18. The Rainforests: Diversity And Destruction
    rainforests Important Information about them and their destruction.. and how to prevent it from disappearing
    Diversity and Destruction By Dave Kristula [ 9 January 1997 - 9th Grade Bio Paper]
    [A section of Dave's Site Apply here for a Discover® Platinum Wildlife Card and get 0% Intro APR* We adopted acres of rainforest, thanks to you! Learn how we did it! Please fill out our survey. Abstract
    The purpose of this paper is introduce the reader to the truths about the rainforests and its destruction. The rainforests are disappearing acres per minute, a number that grows so quickly it would be impossible to cite here because it would grow outdated within a week. The rainforests are home to over half of the entire species of the world, which are being destroyed with the rainforests.
    Unlike the rainforest itself which may appear to grow back, it will never be the rainforest it once was, and all of those species that were killed will never return again. Many of those species that have not yet been discovered may very likely cure cancer, AIDS, and many of the other diseases and viruses of today. If the rainforests disappear, so will most of the population of the world. This report will help the reader to learn more about the causes of the horrifying destruction, and ways that the reader can help stop it!

    This report is about many aspects of the rainforest: what rainforests are, a brief summary of the importances of the rainforests, a description of the destruction of the rainforest, and an informative section about how an average person can help to save the rainforest.

    Rainforest Information Centre Educational Supplement RAINFORESTS OF THE WORLD What Are Rainforests? There are many definitions. In ecological terms, rainforests have been defined as "multi-storied closed, broad leaved forest vegetation with a continuous tree canopy of variable height and with characteristic diversity of species and life forms" . Tropical rainforests in particular possess an astonishing array of flora and fauna. In fact, at least half of the Earth's species are found in rainforests. Contents 1. The Importance of Rainforests

The Importance of Rainforests 1.1 Biodiversity Because of tropical deforestation, it has been estimated that at least 40 species are perishing every day. This is a rate hundreds of times faster than at any period in recent geological time. Tropical forests cover only 12 per cent of the land area of the Earth, yet they are home to between 50 and 90 per cent of the world's species. They contain 90% of non-human primates, 40% of all birds of prey and 80% of the world's insects and over 60% of all known plants. Because one species in a tropical forest may be found in a small area and nowhere else, the destruction of relatively small areas of forest can cause extinctions.
