Biodiversity and Rainforests
Life abounds in the Amazon Rainforest, where biodiversity of all shapes and sizes are represented. To date, there are at least 40,000 plant species, 427 mammals, 1,300 birds, 378 reptiles, 400 amphibians, and 4,000 freshwater fishes. In recent study, researchers conclude that “the links between biodiversity and carbon cycling and storage, supporting the view that whole community complexity—including vertebrate richness and trophic interactions—drives ecosystem function in the tropical systems. RP drives efforts to help protect the integrity of rainforests. Although there is much work to be done we work with the collaboration between the local communities.
