God in nature Nature is Forest.
Rainforests typically see up to a hundred inches of rain each year, in the order of 2000 or more millimetres. Because of the warm temperatures and abundant moisture, they are very rich in species variety, and we probably don't know much of what exists there.
Those who have studied ecology for sometime have probably heard of how important these biomes are for our planet, with phrases such as "world's largest pharmacy", relating the genesis of medicinal ingredients from these places. Similarly, the evolution of many of our foodstuffs took place in rainforests.
What's the difference between a rainforest and a jungle? The amount of sunlight that reaches ground level. With rainforests, the taller trees are so thick, it stays completely shaded on the forest floor, limiting the variety of plants down there. The ground-level vegetation and fauna
is much more lush when walking through the jungle.
I guess that's why the lion isn't the king of the rainforest.Barry's Response
