Biodiversity in Rainforests

Rainforests are the most biologically diverse areas on Earth. It is estimated that rainforests, which cover merely 6% of the Earth’s surface, contain between one half and three quarters of the world’s species. The most biologically diverse rainforests are lowland forests in regions with evenly distributed rainfall. It has even been proven that rainfall levels are more important to biodiversity than soil fertility.
