Tree species with small populations were often lost first in the process of rain forest

Using the materials provided, design the layers of a rain forest
Bowman's findings suggest that, while the species has evolutionary advantages that allow it to out-compete other species, the trees do coexist on the margins of rain forests
and should be considered part of that ecosystem.
In 2009, the number of trees cut down in Brazil's rain forest

Fujita demonstrates the wealth of biodiversity still surviving in the islands of tropical rain forest
in West Africa, and the ability of new DNA analysis techniques to distinguish different species, even when they look alike.
The air in our homes is too dry, too dark and too hot for the best growth of rain forest
By one estimate, for every acre of rain forest

As a lot of people know, trees have the capacity to absorb large quantities of carbon from the atmosphere and it is well recognised that the destruction of large tracts of rain forest
