Many kinds of monkeys, birds, and insects live in the canopy. Unity Church at 5840 Oak St, Vancouver, BC Trees and animals in tropical forests depend on each other for seed dispersal and food, and these "mutualistic" interactions help support the astounding biodiversity of rainforest ecosystems. The overpopulation of deer also poses a direct threat to human health, since one result is the spread of an illness similar to mad-cow disease, that for a long time has been present over large parts of Western and Midwestern North America, and recently has appeared in the East as well.

There is no oxygen to make carbon dioxide, and methane (CH^) is released instead. The same breakdown process occurs in the intestines of termites, which are major rain forest decomposers, consuming up to 17% of the leaf litter in some Malaysian forests. Methane is an important greenhouse gas, but it is not known whether tropical rain forests are net producers or net consumers of this gas. 57 In some of the Asian forests there is a suspicion that not all the nutrients present in the soil are accessible to plant roots, because the trees show adaptations for scavenging nutrients above ground, similar to those of Amazonia The National Geographic Magazine Vol. 130 July-December, 1966. In the 1950s, southwestern Western Australia was largely cleared for wheat production, subsequently leading to its designation as a Global Biodiversity Hotspot given its high number of endemic plant species and rapid clearing rates. Since the 1970s, the greatest rates of forest clearance have been in southeastern Queensland and northern New South Wales, although Victoria is the most cleared state LIFE Magazine - February 28, 1949. Such trees tend to specialize in attracting a particular type of fruit eater - one that will disperse the seed rather than destroy it Life Magazine: June 4, 1951. I also had lunch and dinner with them in a small public canteen every day. After dinner, I would join the three department managers to walk for one hour near the Sinohydro camp. From them, I would learn the schedule of meetings and work for the proceeding days. At the KNBE project site, I collected documents relevant to EIA from the Sinohydro project team. From the EH&S department, I collected the Environmental Project Brief (EPB), Environmental Management Plan (EMP), Environmental Control Plan (ECP), weekly safety inspection results, the company’s internal environmental standards and the 2009 environmental audit report Life Magazine, September 18, 1964. The Black Agouti is a smaller version of the capybara, but does not live in water.

In the New World, spider monkeys pursue the same strategy, racing through the canopy at such speed that an observer on the ground has difficulty in keeping pace. Less specialized for swinging, the spider monkey jumps, swings or runs along horizontal branches, constantly changing its gait. When necessary, it can bring its tail into play, winding it tightly around a branch to act as a "fifth limb" RAINFOREST ANIMALS-TEL (Random House Tell Me About Books).

Coffee, chocolate, Brazil nuts – these and many other tasty treats come from rain forests around the world, which are also home to Earth’s oddest creatures, like the proboscis monkey and the archer fish National Geographic Magazine, February, 1928 (Volume 53, No. 2).

Additionally, tree gardens’ regulatory effect on local climate are potentially significant, as the carbon stocks in a wet-zone garden like in Pitakele may amount to between 48 and 145 Mg C ha-1 with a mean of 87 Mg C ha-1 (Mattsson et al. 2013) LIFE Magazine - August 24, 1959.

Other non-governmental organizations raise funds to put important projects into the field in rain forest countries What is a Rain Forest?: And Other Questions About Conservation and Ecology. Known as ‘rainforests by the sea’, mangrove forests are breeding grounds for many fish, shrimps, prawns, crabs, shellfish and snails, as well as habitat for numerous species of birds, lizards, turtles, crocodiles, and primates including crab eating macaques, proboscis monkeys and, occasionally, orangutans Under the Mango Tree (Miracle in the Amazon Rain Forest). Many are natural pioneers, which estab- lish and grow rapidly out in the open, where they are exposed to direct sunlight, high temperatures and dry conditions. They produce copious, easily-dispersed seeds, which can persist for many years in the soil, waiting for the right germination conditions National Geographic Vol. 122 No. 6 December 1962.
