Medical Plants


Rain forest ecosystems contain more plant and animal species than virtually any other habitat in the world. Although their range has contracted and expanded with climate changes over the last several million years, in general, rain forests are some of the oldest ecosystems on Earth. As a result of this continuity, rain forests boast millions of different species, many of which are endemic, or unique, to rain forest habitats.
