Caption: Interior of a rain forest. View of the diversity of plant species under the canopy of a sub- tropical rain forest. The rain forests are vast regions of multi-layered floral communities. Tall trunks of the canopy trees are seen, interspersed with species that are more at home in darker conditions. The destruction of the Earth's rain forests is one of the great disgraces of humanity: not only are the rain forests a major source of oxygen (from plant respiration) but they are also home to millions of unique plant and animal species. This photograph was taken in the Relic Rain Forest near Cape Otway, southern Australia.
