A forest ecosystem is the community formed by plants and animals of this particular environment that interact with the chemical and physical features of the environment in which they live. The amazon rain forest is an example of a forest ecosystem.
Moreover, 20% of all fresh water on
Earth flows through the basin’s rivers, and these forests are the source of countless foods, fibers,
and potential new medicines to benefit humankind.
Unfortunately, these forests are facing increasing threats from slash and burn agriculture, wildlife
