*         Forest – A Natural Habitat

 

Forest is a natural habitat for animals and micro-organisms. Plants, animals and micro-organisms are dependent on each other in a complex way. Plants and organisms in forests are linked to each other by the process called food chain. In food chain, different plants and organisms are linked to each other by the process of eating and being eaten. The food chain is complex. One organism can be eaten by many other organisms and then each of these organisms can be eaten by many others. This creates a complicated mesh called food web. This complex interlinking indicates that if any one type of plant or animal disappears due to some reason from forest, then the survival of other types of organisms will be endangered.
