The tropical rain forest is one of the major vegetation types of the globe (Richards, 2006; Whitmore, 1998). It occupies a total area of 1818.43 million hectares, representing 47% of the total land area occupied by all forest types of the world (FAO, 2003). The tropical rain forest is the most diverse of all terrestrial ecosystems, containing more plant and animal species than any other biome (Turner, 2001). In spite of this diversity, most species are locally endemic or rare and patchily distributed (Richards, 2006). It is worthy to note that in recent times, the concern has been to concentrate conservation effort in the tropical rainforest because of its richness in biodiversity.
This contrasts with deciduous plants, which completely lose their foliage during the winter or dry season.) that produces the cashew seed and the cashew apples. Some cashew tree can grow up to 14 meters which is 46 ft although the dwarf cashew, grows up to 6 meters, 20 ft has proved to be more profitable, with sooner maturity. The cashew seed, often called a cashew, is widely eaten. It is eaten by itself.

LONG-LIVED AND DEPENDABLE, blueberries are among the easiest fruits to grow organically. Different species are native to various regions of North America, but you can grow some type of blueberry bush almost anywhere. The limiting factor is soil acidity: except for saskatoons, blueberries require acidic soil with a pH below 5.0. Blueberries can also be grown in containers filled with an acidic bark-based planting mix. healthy berries, as well as stunning red and orange fall foliage.
The panicles arise from the top of the plant along the stem. Also, the seeds are about two millimeters in diameter and of various colors. This crop would be a grain but it does not come from the grass like wheat, oats or barley (Raffael, 2012). This crop is well adapted to extreme environmental conditions and is also an important food source for human consumption. The seeds of quinoa (Chenopodium quinoa) are nutritionally
Sugar has been one of the most important components of the human diet, universally used for hundreds of years. Its importance is also related to energy contribution in combination with the capacity to sweeten. Sugar is produced in 121 countries all over the world and approximately 70% of it is obtained from sugar cane, a very tall grass with big stems which is largely grown in tropical countries. The remaining 30% is produced from sugar beet, a crop resembling a large parsnip grown mostly in temperate zone . In addition to cane sugar, other products from sugar cane are cane fiber (known as bagasse) and molasses which is the final thick syrup from which no more sugar may be economically removed by crystallization.

Most plant parasites can be found on the leaves and the roots of the plants because most nutrients and sugars are produced and transported here. The leaves are rich in sugars and other products of photosynthesis and are prime targets for fungal parasites. Plant roots are attacked by a great range fungi, from simple organisms parasitic on a single cell to ones attacking an entire root system 10. The tunnels have been chosen because it is always dark there and it simulates the surroundings in which night animals always live.
Japanese Honeysuckle is also known as invasive species and is sometimes classified as a weed. They have a sweet-honey like nectar. "The green gooseberry is a widely varied fruit depending upon the cultivar," according to SpecialtyProduce.com. The exterior can range in texture from smooth translucent to fuzzy and opaque. They vary in size from that of a large cherry tomato to smaller than a blueberry.
The coastal temperate rainforest is a 2,500 mile long narrow rainforest that borders the west of North America. It is the largest coastal temperate rain forest in the world. It receives an annual precipitation of 33-105 inches of rain. with 350 bird and mammal species, 48 species of amphibians and reptiles, 25 tree species, hundred species of fungi and lichens, and thousand species of mites, insects, spiders, and other soil organisms the rainforest is rich in biodiversity. One of the species that lives in this habitat is the Polypodium glycyrrhia more commonly known as a licorice fern.
Ryan Malakie Principals of Environmental Science 10/8/2015 Pueraria Montana (Kudzu) Pueraria Montana or kudzu is a vine originating from the pea family, which can grow at a blister pace of one foot per day. Kudzu has compound leaves with 3 leaflets each measuring about 10 centimeters wide and 10 centimeters long. The woody vine of the plant grows to be about 2 centimeters in diameter, producing small purple flowers that smell like grapes. Kudzu is considered to be an invasive species in the United States due to its fierce growth that blankets the landscape, out-competing any native species. The Kudzu plant is native to the island nation of Japan, offering the same mixed deciduous forest biome as the majority of the Eastern United Sates.
