World Book Ecology: Life in the Rain Forest

A rain forest is a woodland of tall trees growing in a region of year-round warmth and abundant rainfall. Almost all rain forests lie at or near the equator. About 45 percent of the world's plant species occur in tropical rain forests. Fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals abound in the rain forest and its rivers. However, insects rank as the most plentiful rain forest animals. World Book Ecology presents Life in the Rain Forest; learn more about the animals, plants and lives in the rain forest.
