Forests are the predominant terrestrial ecosystem of Earth, and are found around the globe. It is classified differently and to different degrees of specificity. One such classification is in terms of the biomes in which they exist.


One of earth’s large biome is the tropical rainforest, which have existed on earth for hundreds of millions of years.



Tropical rainforests are rainforests that occur in areas of tropical rainforest climate in which there is no dry season. This type of a luxuriant forest usually found in wet tropical uplands and lowlands around the Equator.

Within the World Wildlife Fund’s biome classification, tropical rainforests are a type of tropical moist broadleaf forest (or tropical wet-forest). It also includes the more extensive seasonal tropical forests. It mostly have broad-leaved trees domination that form a dense upper canopy (layer of foliage). Not only that, it’s also contain a diverse array of vegetation and other life.

The Importance of Rainforest


The vivid beauty that comes with great diversity, rainforests also play an importance role in keeping our planet healthy. It works by absorbing carbon dioxide and releasing the oxygen that we depend on for our survival. The absorption of this CO2 also helps to stabilize the Earth’s climate.

Rainforests also help to maintain the world’s water cycle by adding water to the atmosphere through the process of transpiration which creates clouds. It have non-extractive uses that are frequently summarized as ecosystem services.

Besides, it also important to maintaining biological diversity, sequestering and storing carbon, global climate regulation, disease control, and pollination. Half of the rainfall in the Amazon area is produce by the forests. The moisture from the forests is important to the rainfall in Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina. Deforestation in the Amazon rainforest region was one of main reasons that caused the severe Drought of 2014-2015 in Brazil.

If rainforests were not exist, there would be no water flow to the rivers that lead to lakes and oceans. So, can you imagine if that happen?
