Rainforests are often hot and humid, difficult to reach, insect-ridden, and have elusive wildlife. Actually the concern should not be about losing a few plants and animals; mankind stands to lose much more. By destroying the tropical forests, we risk our own quality of life, gamble with the stability of climate and local weather, threaten the existence of other species, and undermine the valuable services provided by biological diversity Malaysia's Emerald Crown: Exploring the world's oldest tropical rain forest

It is important to remember that decomposers feed on the remains of living things because it suits them - the natural world's "rubbish" represents an abundant and accessible source of food. Their action also releases nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and iron from dead remains, which is of enormous benefit to other animals and plants. Without decomposers life would eventually grind to a halt for lack of nutrients Animals of the Rain Forest (Rain Forest (Rourke))

. Although forests worldwide play a key role in storing carbon and releasing oxygen, rain forests alone are not the earth s lungs, and it is very doubtful if replacing them with agriculture and plantations would have a major effect on the all-impoi-tant oxygen cycle.
